About this Plan
Fundango. Radio control sport model for electric power, using 3:1 geared Speed 400 motor. Wingspan 35 in, wing area 350 sq in.
Discontinued kit from Geat Planes. See http://www.greatplanes.com/manuals/discontinued.php
Quote: "The Fundango is a fun to fly, aerobatic electric airplane that can be flown in small spaces (see Find a Safe Place to Fly on page 23). Depending on your level of expertise, this plane can either be a slow 'Park Flyer' or an aerobatic model capable of tight loops, inverted flight and fast rolls. Although the Fundango uses only ailerons and elevator, with practice you will be able to perform wing-overs and hammer-heads which traditionally require a rudder. The Fundango was not designed to look like a “real” airplane; instead it was designed for exceptional aerobatic performance and we think you'll agree that it meets this objective.
The Fundango is designed to use the Great Planes ElectriFly T-400GD ESC motor system and gear drive for electric flight (GPMG0400). This system includes a T-400 Ferrite Motor, S-400 3:1 ratio gearbox, 3mm prop adapter, APC 10 x 7 propeller and the ElectriFly C-20 High Frequency Electronic Speed Control w/BEC."

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
