Mini Funtana 90 edit

Here is a Mini Funtana 90. Found it online a while back. In the description itís listed as ďPrecision Aerobatics Katana Mini modeled by Tony Elms. So thank you to him for making it.
My edit was the following.
New color scheme to look like green scales. I upped the torque of the motor, added a larger prop with 4 blades, increased the throw distance of the ailerons & rudder, changed the smoke to match colors of the plane, Added brakes on the ch 8 switch. Anyways its kind of fun to fly so I thought Iíd post it.

Note: The rudder dose seem to exceed it turning radius & didnít fix it before posting. The file upload had already started and I am on dial up so I didnít want to start over uploading. But itís really not a problem just a visual thing.

No, I don't have a problem with it.

All I commented was "hmmm"...

e.g. is it, or isn't it?

As in "why post at all?"

Or the more esoteric "why do we post?".

Yes, what an egregious lack of decorum!

Sorry I have been busy the past few days and havenít been back.
Yes the scheme I did is an edit of the original. As thatís the only way I understand how to make new schemes. Save new scheme then open that file and look at it and see what you can change to make it look different. But I suppose I have a limited understanding of making one from scratch. As I donít understand the mapping of how the scheme is laid on the plane.

But like I said I did go off the original. And decided to take off all the yellow I could see. Then replaced it with scales I had made in adobe Photoshop.

As I have done similar but less dramatic edits with some of the war planes. I left the original schemes on those so they look the same but added rust & streaks to make them look old or blasted in battle. But I never posted those edits as like I said they were just for playing around.

I'm not complaining nor do I feel bothered or hard feeling towards anyone for any of the above post. I just felt I would explain my truths here. Like in the post I said an edit. I didnít make the plane nor would I take credit for making it. Just editing a few things. I hope some at least enjoyed it.

Good day and happy flying everyone.
