Just a quick update to let you know the plans for Frank’s Bullet Plane are now available! Please see the “Planes” Tab or click link below.
Hello Frank….I was wondering if you could send me a list of what i would need (Electronically ) for my new plane….Multiplex Funjet …I am a new pilot and have been flying a “Wild Hawk’…I can fly it pretty good but that is the only plane i have flown…Need to know what to buy to fly at a slower speed ,like 60 to 70 mph,on the funjet…Want to go much faster but am so new to the flying that i think i better have a set up for slower speeds for now ….Am building the Funjet now and really love that airplane .. My radio for the fun jet is a spektrum DX6i ..Have a radio Blitz RC 2200 Thanks so much for your help….Really admire what you and Paul are doing
Thanks LOU email email@example.com
hagg164 please have a look at the post I put in the blog a while ago. There you will find the link to my original review video of the FunJet. If you watch the video on YouTube you will find links to all the electronic I used in the video. If you go with the 3 cell setup and 6×4 prop you should be close to the speeds you are looking for.

Remember to watch the video on YouTube or you won’t be able to access the links to the parts.
frank, the epp version of this plane and the foamboard version looks different. as i saw on the video on youtube with the 1600 watt bullet plane testing. i want to make that exact plane but will the foamboard version work as well, how much epp foam do you need and how thick, please send me all the information.
eric101898 the epp bullet plane is different than the foam board version. The fuselage is the same shape but the wing is 4 inches wider with a strait line across the back of the wing where the elevons attach. I never made plans for the epp version so you will need to go it on your own. I do suggest watching the complete playlist of the epp Bullet Plane as it covers the build all the way up to the latest 1600watt power system upgrade.
EPP Bullet Plane playlist:
The wing was made of 1.9 weight epp the bottom piece is 10mm thick and the KF airfoil pieces are 6mm thick. The Fuselage was made from 60mm thick 1.3 weight epp and then beveled and sanded to shape. Good luck with your build.
thanks frank, How fast does the 1600 watt bullet plane go by the way
eric101898 we haven’t had a chance to clock the 1600watt epp Bullet Plane yet. We,re still waiting for better weather so wee can get out to Hermann Airport again. If I were to guess I would say it’s doing somewhere around 130mph but I we’ll have to wait and see till the next time I have it out for the actual speeds.
I bought the flat plan of your bullet.
But what is the thickness of dupron?
congratulations for your work.
zac59 since 6mm foamboard was used to build this version of the Bullet Plane I’m sure 6mm dupron will work fine but you will need to add some carbon spars across the wing to make it strong enough. With the foamboard it was stiff enough because of the paper on both sides that and the tape also added a lot of strength.
Ok Frank for 6mm Depron.
And for construction epp, what thickness should you use?
zac59 there are no plans for the epp version of the Bullet Plane at the moment but you could try watching the playlist “Return of the Bullet Plane” on rcfoamFighters YouTube channel to get some idea of the differences. Just for reference I used 9mm epp for the main part of the wing and 6mm epp for the kf airfoil portions of the wing. The fuselage was made from a piece of 60mm epp. I used a mix of 1.3 and 1.9 weight epp you can use whichever you prefer.
hi i was make bullet plane 4 times., but this plane not stable on air, when we take off it plane was circle to left side, we on air when we going full throttle it rolling to left side.. i am using 2700kv ntm motor and 60A esc , 6×4 sport prop,, plz help me to reslove this matter
Sounds like your power system is too powerful for this small 24 inch wingspan plane. As a result you are getting massive torque roll. You can try a smaller prop like 5×5 or adding a lot of aileron trim to the right to counter the torque roll. No guarantee this will work as the plane was designed to run off a 2212/6 2200kv motor and 1350mAh 3 cell pulling about 25-30 amps. Also do not launch at full throttle. Just bring the throttle up slowly till the plane feels like it wants to fly out of your hand then launch it. Good luck!
