    1. Great kit

      Great fun kit. I have made the Bloody Mic and this was just as fun. on 24th Feb 2017

    2. Haven't built yet...but... .

      As yet haven't built yet but came very well packaged and am very excited to start asap! Love it's simplicity and strength and have high hopes for a vertical liftoff and wheeled landing! Highly recommend! ;) on 17th Dec 2016

    3. Aileron Cuts on Speedbuild kit are on the wrong side in the Bloody Wonder kit

      Had fun building Bloody Wonder. Still painting at the moment. Looking forward to flying. Please be aware the Aileron cuts on the foam board are on the wrong side. I tried to let Fred know on the email support page. Hope someone took notice of this point. It forces the build of the plane to show the beveled 45 degree cuts on the top side of the plane. My assumption is this an aesthetics issue only. on 12th Dec 2016

    4. The bloody wonder is a Great plane

      It was easy to build and flies grate. on 5th Nov 2016

    5. Kit Missing Items

      I didn't receive any bamboo skewers with my kit just some flimsy plastic rods that bent when I tried to insert them. Also, the aileron cut was on the top of the wing surface making for a less than aesthetic look to the plane. FT really needs to change their manufacturing process to flip the wing over before scoring the aileron. Other than that everything went together nicely. on 22nd Oct 2016

    6. Random inspection

      I want to first start off this is a great build. The reason for the 4 stars is when my build arrived I did a inventory to make sure everything was there. Then I checked each part for damage. When I got to the wing portion I realized the cuts for the ailerons where done upside down. When you fold the wing over you see the ailerons cuts were facing up. Please inform as to do random inspection of products and try and catch these issues before they are shipped. Thank you on 12th Jun 2016

    7. My favorite FT flyer.

      The FT Bloody Wonder gave me my very first successful r/c flying experience over a year ago. It had to be retired because of moisture damage. Now with waterproof foam this plane is more indestructible. I flew it once on a very foggy and wet morning and you couldn't even tell it got wet. It's a very simple build with only 2 servos needed and it flies like a fighter. This plane is quick, agile and stable.
      I love scratch building and these speed build kits are very helpful. Sometimes I just don't want to worry about cutting my lines perfectly straight and wasting my printer ink. Thank you Flite Test.

    8. First of many!

      I have built about 75% of the planes currently available from Flite Test and so far this one is my favorite for a few reasons. One, it's a two hour build once you get good at it. Two, it takes only 2 servos and they mount on the top so it's an easy change if you break one and super fast adjustments if you're needing alignment. Third and most important, it flies wonderfully!! I built two in two days because I tend to do crazy stuff and crash a lot. Well, that's what happened and because it takes fewer materials and less build time I didn't feel bad at all. The Bloody Barron was my favorite but now it's this one! I won't deny that you have to make some mods for it to hold up but it's worth the extra time like gluing your bbQ skewers in the lower fins for stability on landing and small popsicle sticks on the back fins so they hold up. I even doubled the back fins on one plane and that helps a lot as well. I've only been flying four months and have dozens of builds done and this is my number 1. on 4th Jan 2016

    9. A Bloody Great Aircraft

      Bloody fun to build. I am learning how to cut foam for the first time. Bloody good instructions on YouTube. Haven't flown the bloody thing as it snowed a little yesterday up here in Ontario, Canada and this 74 year old pilot isn't going to freeze just yet! Next week the weather is supposed to be warmer might get a chance to try it out then. Now I will be able to attach the main body to some of your other models which I will be purchasing in the future. Keep up the great videos as they sure help in so many ways and are fun to watch. You lads have a lot of talent and great character. I took a picture of it but I don't think there is a place to post it on here. Bye for now!
