Multiplex Funjet
Anyone have one? I know you are supposed to use an inrunner motor. Can you use an outrunner motor in it? Is the mount part #61 strong enough to hold it while it spins?

a guy I fly with has one at the field. He has the 2800kv motor from hk. With a 5 cell lipo, he was going 130 plus on the radar. super fast plane, and they fly good if set up right.2nd place is the first loser.

We use them with ducted fans and a high kv brushless motor. With 4S LiPo's they are fast too, being lighter they are very maneuverable. I used the Wemotech Mini Fan 480 http://www.modelflight.com.au/rc_mo...i_fan.htm#order There really isn't a way to mount an out runner motor on there.

Take Care,

Thanks all for the info. I was hoping that it might work. I have a never been used spare 3899 kv brushless. I've never seen a Funjet in person but the pix of the motor mount looks like it is made of plastic. Part #60 looks like I can screw my motor onto. I plan to use 3s Lipos as I have a bunch of those. Is the Multiplex powerpack good or mediocre?

Yea I looked at about 25 youtube videos and everyone is giggling in the background. I think I'll get a 3900kv inrunner and about a 4.5x4.5 prop with a 40amp ESC.

Man I love the way they sound like a Formula 1 racer screaming by.

I tried that set up myself, it wasnt to good. Try to stick with a 7 by 7 prop with a 80 amp control. Its a rocket. The small prop makes take offs harder and its not as fast.2nd place is the first loser.

I've owned and crashed a couple. They are VERY fun!!!

I use a Mega Motor 3100KV inrunner running on 4S 2250 Pro 30C packs from Thunder Power RC spinning a APC 6x4 prop. Top speed is somewhere near 140-150mph.

I got one too. I use a trusty old Mega 16/15/3 with a 60 amp ESC on 3S. If you use a CAM Speed prop (5.5x5.5) you hit 130 in a shallow dive.If you skip me I can't play!

The Multiplex Power Pack FunJet actually looks quite good, especially for the price of $139.99.

Yea the price is right for the power pack. I heard it is a little slow with that setup. Don't know what slow means when I tried to nail down a speed.

maa46646 you said use a 7x7 prop. The kit specs say 4.75x 4.75 with a 3000kv motor and a 3s pack. Does the prop clear everything okay?

I was planning to use a bunch of Flight Power 3s 2070mah packs I have 3s packs 11.1 max. I don't want to buy 4s or bigger packs. I'm tired of all the different packs I have laying around and never getting my moneys worth. Flight time isn't a biggie for me right now. I want at least 2 minutes of climb and dive.

So 7x7 prop will clear? I have a NIB 75 amp ESC laying around. What would you use for a motor? I'd like to keep it under $60. You say you saw a Mega 16mm or amp and 25 amp burst 3 pole motor work well?

I may sound like an idiot, but it is because I am new to electrics, though I have 3 electric helis, but I had help selecting equipment and all greast advice, but now I want a Funjet setup.

Thanks a million.

16 25 3 you can run alot of power through them. when you get tired of the 3 cell which will be quick you can run up to 6 cells. so your not limited to just 3 cells. i ran 7 cells in my stryker on that motor. its a screamer on 7 cells.2nd place is the first loser.
