Vertical Drag Race Combat

The FT Bloody Wonder!? A cross between the Bloody Micks' FunBat and the Sig Wonder.  




The FT Bloody Wonder is designed after Bloody Micks' FunBat, which was based off of the Sig Wonder. The original scratch built FunBat is made with a KF step, but our FT Bloody Wonder  was created with an actual flat bottom, curved top air foil made from bending the foam over the wing.


We also made our mutant flyer also features a swappable fuselage!  Thanks to youtubers like: jordster1998,   RCJetFighters, and zeppelin4646 who requested that we make this into a swappable. 


"Where's the beef?"... Here's the beef! Our scratch built is powered by a NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26A 1200kv / 250w motor, and it's fast!

We've built two of these planes and figured we might as well have challenge! A three-part challenge to be exact. First part is a vertical drag strip, second is a streamer cut, and third is a collision course (last plane flying).

For some reason I'm thinking about Will Ferrel dancing around with streamers.

Have you guys considered making a rudder setup for this plane? It would be interesting to see what that would do to the maneuverability in extreme maneuvers. I'll be sure to experiment when I get the chance to do so. Thanks for the good video guys, keep up the fantastic work!

That was a fun challenge! I also would like to see a build video (and plans)

Liked the fact that the 2nd place guy (lunchbox-dude) was also a winner.

Great job, guys.

I loved the video. Although I am missing some more info on the setup, did you leave the ESC the same like on the original FunBat (basic 18A)? What propeller and battery were they running?

I'm still in doubt about where to place the battery in the plane, out side or inside the power pod ??
