Funster 20 model airplane plan

Funster 20

RCModeler's Funster 20

A fantastic build and flier. Excellent for the beginner low wing flight. (Might be difficult for those who have no low wing experience...but...if you're intent on flying low wing, 'this is the plane to do it with')

For persons who have been flying for years you'll probably want the next larger size. This very popular plane showed up in the late 60's and had it's hay day in the 70's to present. How popular? Magazine readers will tell you the Funstar was advertised in ever RC Model magazine and often in several retail ads. It started out a 40 size plane and was scaled all over the place. In my memory sizes were 20, 40, 60, 75, 90, 120. The 40 size was my first low wing model.

Things to watch out for:

Rates: Stick to the low rates on the plan until you get a feel for it. Do not exceed full rates on plan!
Modern: If needed get help to modify the aileron servo position, orientation and control.
Servos: Standard size fairly quick servos are perfect. For everything but 3D!
Plan: Have a well seasoned builder to ask questions you 'will have'.
Wing: As always learn to build straight and true. Get help for setting the dihedral.

I put trainer on this size model but don't be fooled. This plane falls under every performance category you can think of. It will hover as you can see in the video, pylon racer, 3D , aerobatic, etc. The plans of this model are excellent and easy to follow for the most part. These kits were so popular that many if not all the model manufacturers produced very similar models under different names. See Razzle 3D, Sig Four Star, Lucky Star.

It appears that due to the new Phoenix model advertising these pre-internet plans and instructions are difficult to find. Video as well on the larger plane for flying characteristics

Love building and flying. I've always flown on private property and only been involved with clubs twice. I live in southern Ontario Canada near Niagara Falls. I build at least one plane a year. I am fairly new to 3D helicopters.

My name is Donnie and I've been flying planes, helicopters, racing cars and launching rockets since 1970 when I got my first U-control plane from Carl Goldberg models. I finally got my first RC in 1983 a Cessna 182 kit with four channels. My favorite planes are 3D of every sort of aircraft. Anything capable of punching holes in the sky. IRL I work with programming and I use the skills I have to build my own designs and plans. Thank you for the donations.
