The interest in airplane remote control hobby has been increasing dramatically
since 2007 especially after a lot of scaled model with cheap price but with good quality have
Airplane remote control is not hard to play but it can be tricky for most
Below is the short story based on my own experience:
How many of you purchased airplane remote control and crashed it in 3
seconds and then cannot be used anymore?
hear some of you said, “Hey that was me!!” Stressful isn’t it?
You assembled the airplane after you took it from the post; you wiped it so it is clean and shiny.
And then you waited for the perfect time. You put it in your car booth. Went to RC Club or looked
for Empty Park with happy and thrilling heart. And then you attached the battery, you tested the
transmitter and receiver, everything worked perfectly. You pushed the throttle up and because it
was using powerful brushless motor, it suddenly launched fast and flown and then you got shocked,
your brain freeze then the plane turned, headed downward and…..BAM!!! You crashed it in
three seconds after you pushed the throttle. You took the plane pieces, put in
plastic bag, took it back to your car booth and went home with #$&$@#
Skyartec Understand This Problem
My fellow pilot. Above condition is very frustrating, disappointing and those
can make you give up this hobby. Although if you want to make some effort like picking up the
pieces and glue them back, most people are too lazy to do that and simply give up.
So, Skyartec Company designed RC Plane for Beginner called Sky Fun, Fun Jet
Skyartec, with brushless motor powered by Li-Po battery just like other scale airplane but this one
is especially for beginners although some advance flyer might be interested too.
When you crash, 90% you will hit nose first. If you buy front single propeller
airplane with landing gear, you are dead....LOL....
These area are most likely break:
Front Landing Gear
To buy above spare parts are not so expensive, but beginners will need more and
more right? That when the word expensive kick in.
With Fun Jet, Skyartec designed it this way:
No landing gear. It is hand launched and land on its body.
Propeller is located at the back of the body. Although there is posibility to hit the
back side of the plane, it is only 5% chance.
Nose is full foam. So it gives extra strength when you crash nose first.
With above design, beginner can try over and over again without being have to go
home after first crash to fix it.
With Fun Jet, if you crash nose first, nothing to worry. Pick it up and fly
again as nothing will break. If by chance you break the nose, just tape it back and fly it again
within second. Believe me it works.
Visit my forum and you will see one of my customer did that and take a look on
his Fun Jet. Full of tape....LOL....
Another good thing about Fun Jet Skyartec is that its wing area is large so it
can fly slower than other plane. Gives more time for beginner to react. But it can also fly up to
100 KM/H. So don't too underestimate it.
Current 2015 Model
INTERESTING CHANGES in this 2015 version of Fun Jet. Being equipped with
powerful system named 3G3X Gyro and controlled by NASA701 LCD 2.4 GHz transmitter, replacing older version of SKY706, will
definitely give you a breakthrough and totally new experience in flying.
And now in 2015 version, they add NAVIGATIO
The 3G3X Gyro system will give much more benefit in flying especially for
beginners and the NASA701 will give much more friendly method to adjust your flying performance
setting. With NASA 701, adjusting flying performance will be directly from LCD on the
transmitter. It means you will not need to carry your laptop with you anymore like in older
As a flyer myself, and from many years (since 2007) I have been dealing with
flying remote control stuff (airplane and helicopter), I never see such an amazing poweful
system in flying. More detail are as follow.
Those who fly an airplane might understand more with this. Anyway I will try to
explain the best I can as if you never fly an airplane R/C before.
When we fly an r/c plane, especially at first or during take off, there is one
major challenge that will determine whether or not you crash or continue flying. Wohoo... pretty
scary isn't it? LOL.... :D
Here is the thing, when you take off either from ground or hand launch, the
plane sometimes move up and down or left to right seems like uncontrollable. To stabilize it,
you will need to do it manually from your remote. Sometimes our reaction is not as quick as what
is needed to control the plane and that could be the cause of crash.
This could happen to advance flyer and ESPECIALLY beginners because beginners
have one biggest problem that I call "BRAIN FREEZE"
To give you easy illustration imagine an airplane is flying straight. And then
suddenly there is side wind blow from left to right. The wind will make the plane tip over. The
3G3X will help the plane to hold to its level position.
Similarly if the plane is moving up and down due to turbulence wind, the 3G3X
will help to stabilize the plane and to avoid nose dive and crash.
Please note that 3G3X does not make the plane back to horizontal position, but
it is more to holding its current position.
With 3G3X system, this Fun Jet and other Skyartec model that is equipped with
3G3X will become more and more suitable to first time flyer and during windy condition.
Your Fun Jet will be equipped with two lights, one on each wing tip.
One side will be colored in green and the other will be in red.
The red light will be on the left side and green light will on the right.
When you fly your Fun Jet R/C in dawn or dusk, these lights can be
very useful for you. It helps you to know which direction your Fun Jet r/c is
For example, while flying it and you see:
Green lights on your left and red light on your right, it means that your Fun
Jet r/c is flying towards you.
Red lights on your right and green light on your left, it means that your Fun
Jet r/c is flying away from you.
