Overview

Rock-solid harriers. Stable torque rolls. Waterfalls...blenders...parachutes...all the aerobatic maneuvers imaginable.  And doing it electric style.

The new Mini Funtana 3D EP ARF from E-flite™ is an extraordinary aerobatic performer designed especially for park flyer pilots who prefer flying electric. It’s tightly constructed from lightweight balsa and plywood. The ARF includes carbon fiber landing gear, fiberglass cowl and wheel pants. It’s the same level of materials and craftsmanship that goes into our Hangar 9 brand, but at a lower price point than competitive products.

And, like the Hangar 9 FuntanaS™ 3D performers, the E-flite version flies like a dream with unlimited potential to perform any aerobatics an experienced electric pilot can conjure up. The Funtana EP’s low wing loading and finely engineered tapered constant-thickness airfoil produce excellent slow-speed performance and handling, while its large control surfaces provide unbelievable control authority.

The E-flite Funtana EP comes with a 6.6:1 gearbox and propeller, and it can also be easily upgraded using E-flite brushless motors. For instance, the E-flite Park 400 Brushless Motor includes an adapter plate that connects easily to the Funtana’s gearbox.  We even include a 10-Tooth pinion gear for the motor.

Product Support Tips

Selecting Your Motor

We are recommending either the E-flite Park 400 Brushless Motor with 4200Kv (EFLM1100) or the version with 3700Kv (EFLM1105). The 3700Kv
motor provides plenty of power for sport and entry level 3D pilots with the ability to hover and climb vertically using the stock 6.6:1 gearbox and 12 x 6 propeller. This motor will draw less current and provide longer flight duration. The 4200Kv motor should only be used by experienced pilots who manage throttle appropriately. This motor will provide even better vertical performance at the expense of flight duration due to the increased current draw. It is extremely important to monitor gearbox wear and motor temperature when using the 4200Kv motor. Lack of proper throttle management using this motor may result in damage to the motor, gearbox, esc, and battery.

Center of Gravity

The recommended Center of Gravity (CG) location for the Mini Funtana is 3-1/8" (80mm) behind the leading edge of the wing against the fuselage. Use this CG and the rearward wing position to the first flights until you have become more experienced.

For experienced pilots and extreme 3D performance, move the wing to the forward location. This will provide a neutral feel when inverted and will allow the Mini Funtana to really cut loose. It is best to increase the exponential values used to maintain a smooth feel. The CG may be placed as far back as 37/16" (88mm).
Note: The wing has two different mounting positions, which provides more flexibility with adjusting the CG. Using the rearward wing position will allow the aircraft to balance at the forward CG for precision aerobatics. The forward wing position is used to achieve the rearward CG for extreme 3D aerobatics.

Motor Installation

When installing your motor into the E-flite gearbox, it is very important that your gear mesh is set correctly and the gear’s mesh is smooth with no binding. The E-flite gearbox features adjustable slotted mounting holes so that you can ensure your gear mesh is correct. Remember, if your mesh is too loose or too tight, it may strip the gears. See the instructions included with your E-flite gearbox for more helpful tips on gear mesh and motor installation.
Proper gear mesh is extremely important for high power set ups, such as those systems typically used to power the Mini Funtana. Be certain to check the mesh at multiple points on the spur gear before finalizing the motor mounting position in the gearbox. To extend the life of your gearbox, we also recommend using
a small amount of grease, such as lithium grease, on the spur gear.
It is very important that you check to be sure
the propeller is balanced before installing onto the shaft. An unbalanced propeller may strip the gear. When installing the propeller, please do not over tighten the 3mm lock nut. The use of the lock nut will prevent the propeller from coming loose.
