Default BJ Craft Fantasista

Well guys, following some interest for this airframe in my Nuance 120 thread, I thought Id share this info with you all here in a new thread.

I spoke with Chris from 'Bondaero' here in the UK and asked if he would be good enough to give us all a sneak preview of this model in its production format, straight of the bat. As Chris usually physically checks his shipments on receiving them and pre-distribution to his customers, coupled with a really nice warm sunny day here in the UK, he agreed to bring one up to our club site for a closer look and some pics. Here's the result.

Interestingly, this model has an all moving stab set-up, a feature also destined for the Bi-Side. The main pivot tube is a double ball-raced unit that the carbon joining tube runs through, very neat.

The overall quality is of course what we have learned to expect from BJ, superb!

I'll let the pictures do some of the talking but if you'd like any further info just ask here or email Chris through his website.

Very beautiful plane. I have the Monolog 2M which flys very nice.
I have a Hacker A60-7s-v2 waiting to be put into a plane. Do you think it is too large for this plane with 10s 4000 mAh battery?

Do you have a photo to show the firewall?

Thanks.

The motor would fit without any problem, just might be a little too much though as a 10s setup on this airframe. It is intended for an 8s setup.

I just received my Fantasita, a little repairable damage with the shipping, (Broken former/cross bar in the fuselage and a broken sleeve in the fuselage that holds the wing tube. I did quit the hobby 12 years ago (a move I still regret to this day) and have recently started back flying pattern aeroplanes as pattern was once and still is my passion. The finish of this BJ Craft kit is quite good, BUT where are the instructions. Look at the SebArt kits their instructions are quite explicit and well written. With this beautiful Fantasita kit, once the wings are in place, how is it secured to the fuse. What is secured to the flying stab in order for it to function as designed. Everything else I can figure out. please advise.

rbarthur there should be a photographic build sequence on the BJ Craft website, I used that for my Nuance 120.

Paphman, your Hacker A607SV2 will work on 8S, the figures from e-calc are - 1938 input watts on a 21x13 APC at 65 amps and 5210 rpm, these figures are pretty similiar to what Andy is getting on his Nuance 120 / Turnigy G110 209 KV,, I am running an Axi 5330/18 in my Nuance 120 and although my KV is higher at 259 I am running a 20x10 for 1960 watts and 65 amps. That amount of power will fly it just fine I am sure.

I think the perfect motor for this plane is the Hacker A60 7XS
http://www.f3aunlimited.com/webstore...roducts_id=806
running on an 4500 mil 8S lipo. Which we will have in stock in a week.
The prop that seems to run well on this setup is the Falcon 19x12.

This plane is simply said stunning. Really sharp and well built.
Call me if you are interested in having one under the tree for Christmas.
