RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Mmm....

As for the showtime, yeah I would have either put a 1.20 or 1.50 in that, so yeah, a 1.50 probably would have been better then.

Personally, I would mount the motor sideways so that...

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Pass. [&:]

Personally, I can't see why it would over rev ? [sm=72_72.gif]
You'd need to re-tune it (alter the mixture needle) whatever prop you changed it too anyway, and...

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Hiya. :)

You should be ok with the standard landing gear, - it was designed with larger props in mind than the original Funtana. (apparently)
Mine swings a 14x4W (Wide blade prop), and there...

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Hiya. :)
Yeah, the .46 will be well underpowered, - I know, as that's what size I first tried mine on before removing it and getting a .91 FS, which in my opinion is just about right.

One or...

RE: Lipo Charging Problem Question

Have you got a voltmeter ?
If so, check the voltage of the battery.
A 2 cell lipo measures 8.4v fully charged, and shouldn't be less than 6v fully discharged.
Knowing the voltage in the pack...

I can't get the Tru-Turn spinners in the UK anyway, and would have to get one imported.
I've checked the prices of them before when I first got the Funtana, and they are pretty...

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Mmm, tell me about it.
I tried to fit an alloy spinner, but as it's a 4 stroke, it has a tapered-fit extra locknut, and theres not enough thread left to fit an alloy spinner nut on it after that...

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

I'm just using the standard 11oz tank that comes with it.
I also only get about 9 or 10 mins.
I'm happy enough with that though.

Great, at least you didn't have to do any mods then to get it...

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Yeah, I see what you mean.
I can't remember having any problems doing mine though, but it was about 20 months ago, so I can't really remember :eek:

The only way round it then, would be to cut...

RE: Anyone get a new Funtana X 50 yet?

Standard Futaba 3003's all round on mine (for everything) [sm=72_72.gif]
Seem ok to me, but may benefit an upgrade to a 6v RX pack from the 4.8v one ?
If anything, they could do with being a bit...

RE: Anyone get a new Funtana X 50 yet?

I've never even bothered to try flying with them on mine, as I don't fancy them getting ripped off on the landing or take off, as they are very close to the ground, and our patch is pretty rough !

RE: Anyone get a new Funtana X 50 yet?

Hi.
I take it that you mean using them in the Funtana ? Yeah ? Good.

Specification wise, they should be up to the job no problem.

RE: Engine for Funtana X50

Yeah, I can't think how the hell the X50 would perform at all on a .36 2 stroke ? [&:]
Maybe a .36 Weston with a power pipe ?
Who knows, but that would be the only way I can think of !

I haven't flown mine for a couple of months.

RE: Ultrafly PC-9

Those props are not folding props, they are just flexible (to a degree) so that they are more likely to resist breaking on impact.

But with a plus side to these props there is always a trade...

Plus the rudder...
