The Skyfun can be used by novice and advanced pilots alike. Providing heart pounding speed yet a slow stall rate, the Skyfun is a park-jet you will want to take everywhere.
Made with high-pressure EPS and a polished mould, the Skyfun is extremely stiff, has a gloss like surface and yet very crash resistant!

Ok .... fitted standard 2200 kv motor 40 amp esc, with stock props 3s 2200
Fantastic flyer ... will go vertical forever, its smooth and responsive ... will go fast or slow quite as well with supplied prop
easy to hand launch and easy to land , i 3d printed servo covers as white ones in kit were to shallow to fit. and fitted some magnets to hold canopy
i sprayed some flashes on with acrylic paint ... it reacted a bit with the foam (cheap foam) but doesnt effect the way it flys,
hinges have been ok at moment as it came ..
Despite its faults i would recommend this plane just because it flys so well ...Ok .... its just arrived ... first impressions ... its made of Cheap foam ....which is pity ...
canopy doesnt fit properly ... (front fitting doesnt work so canopy pops up at front all the time)
hinges are taped with fibre type tape ...(not saying its good or bad)
Its well packed for a change (had a load of trouble with skipper xl lately)
its cheap and cheerful ... i like the shape and it looks good ....
pity its not epo ... and pity that i still getting problems with all the kits i get from hobby king ...
they are not serious problems but .......!
i havent had one that was faultless ...This little guy really rocks. Maiden was awesome with only slight trimming required
Definitely recommend updating the elevon surfaces to balsa as you'll love throwing this thing around the sky and has the power to match. Excellent verticals but also happy to just float around at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle. Wrapped an elastic band around the front of the nose and canopy as a safe measure
Thoroughly recommend this little delta, I will also be upgrading to 4S with the recommended outrunner. As the name suggests, SkyFun!Nice foamy kit and almost finished the build. Using a Turnigy 2200kv with 6x4 prop on 3S 2200 lipo. Draws around 26A and 280W, so a good setup to start with. There was slight wing damage from the packing, definately more foam in the box than what the Skyfun is built with. My elevons were also poorly taped at the hinge joint, one was high and the other low so rather than risk it I have made two new ones from balsa and will use proper hinges. Also added carbon spars to the channels under both wings for added strength. Everything else looks nicely done and they even had two props in the kit with a rather cheesy prop adapter which doesn't fit the Turnigy shaft anyway. I've fitted trusty HXT900 9g servos and with a bit of modifying using heat, the plastic protective covers will fit although I'll tape them in place rather than using glue. Added a fairly decent magnet to the front of the canopy as I believe it decides to part company in some cases.Looking forward to the maiden and possibly running gear upgrade at a later stage. Looking good so far with plenty of room up frontBetreibe den SkyFun mit einen 80er WeMo Impeller mit ca. 3.2 kg Schuh und 6S 4000er Lipo. Die max. Geschwindichkeit liegt damit bei ca. 230-240km/h. Der Jet ist damit Schnell und durch die Delta Form doch sehr gut mtig unterwegs.
Der Bausatz muss bei solchen geschwindichkeiten allerdings komplett mit GFK beglast und CKK Stben versteift werden, ist dann aber voll Altagstauglich, weil auf kurzem Rasen Bodenstart fhig.5 star rating again for the i d i o t that rated it 1 star. This kit needs work, but it's on of the best flying airframes in this format.I bought the PNF version and fell in love with the model so I bought a new kit to pimp out with more powerful electronics. This model is excellent at high speeds as well as low speeds!OK for the money. Weighs 525 grams all up including added wheels and 1000mah 3 cell, with Turnigy 28261400kv motor and 7x6cut to 6x6 prop producing 170w 15amp max. Decals poorly applied, elevons badly set, cut them off and made balsa ones. Lots of moulding flash needs sanding down. Clear canopy glued just at front and back only, take it off and reglue before you loose it. It would have been better if decals were on a sheet, canopy was supplied loose, elevons & hinges supplied loose and glue was supplied with kit.
it must be cheaper for the supplier rather than paying for poor assembly.Havent flown it yet, but I didnt really like the tape hinges and the fuselage seems to be of faulty design, as most of its space is useless if you dont plan to carry only foam with you. 90 percent of the fuselage space is located in front of the CoG...the wings are placed too far back in relation to the fuselage. I think the Funjet has a smarter designGreat plane for the price, yet to maiden it but am pleased with the quality of the model. The foam is more of a packaging type foam but should hold up fine. I installed several carbon fibre rods to reinforce the wing and motor mounting area as will be running a 2300kv motor out of an efx racer, however the factory done hinges are simply fibreglass reinforced tape and will need replacing if using a high speed set up (in my opinion!) i will be running a 6x4 prop on 3s 2200 packs, model is super lightweight and the thrust to weight ratio should make for a superb flying model!
