Funjets and turbines... Life doesn't get any better! My new funjet with powerpack should be here soon, the postal strike delayed delivery by 3 weeks! Mick, when will the Pogo fly again? David, Evader flight at Wimac?

I had my first flight with the Evader last week! It's pretty fast, but not as fast as the Funjet! I have started putting my Flycat together, not sure if it will be quicker than the Evader, static thrust feels like it...Are you guys planning any flying for this Saturday or Sunday?

David, a lot of us are headed to the club tomorrow morning! Sadly my funjet met an untimely death whilst playing limbo at over 240km/h, it now flies in airplane heaven! So I patiently await the arrival of my new Ultra! Should be there Saturday as well, would love to see the Evader! On a side note, my efficiency with my previous setup was merely 65% and that generated 200km/h + level flight speeds (Doppler verified I might add) hahaha. My new set-up will be approaching 85% efficiency, or so I hope! Mega motors are little jewels, definitely worth their weight in gold and much cheaper than turbines! Most stock evaders are approaching 160km/h in level flight, but the sound gives onlookers the feeling of much greater speeds, the ducted fan echoes at wimac!
