i really really want one haha they rock i saw one fly up here last summer and it was really nice. ca hinges are good but if you can get some of thos robart normal hinges or whatever the other normal hinges are out there. less chance of something screwing up. a 70 4stroke for that sizr of plane is more than enough power! aha my pizzaz has an os 70 and it flies awsome! but if you can definalty go for that saito 82 apparently its really nice.

There is absolutely nothing wrong using the CA Hinges in this plane. I have assembled two of the DP planes, the 330L and the smaller Ultimate Bipe and both ARF's come with CA hinges. These planes are considerably larger than the Funtana. There has been absolutely no problems with the hinges in these larger models.

I flew my Funtana 40 with a Saito .91 and I flew with a fellow who had the exact same plane with the Saito .72 and it was quite surprising to me that he got the same and in some regards better performance than I did. His engine for one thing is designed for this plane and the installation is easy and perfect. I had to make several mods to get my engine installed. For another, his engine is lighter and balanced much easier than mine did. Having found the best prop for the 72 gave him awsome performance and lighter wing loading.

Althought its great having tons of power, there is a fine balance between power and weight. I could see little difference in the performance of these two planes and if anything, his was better! Less weight, easier installation, easier to balance, less cost for the engine, and less fuel to operate for the same or better performance....This is only my findings and MHO!
