The FT 22 is a fun flyer that beginners and advanced pilots can enjoy together. This 2 sheet design is the first of our new Simple Series, which uses the FT Elements Simple Firewall, instead of a power pod. Considering the sleek look of the FT22 and it's excessive elevon control surface throws, the FT22 is actually a very forgiving platform that we would even go as far to say that it would be a great first plane/trainer. This is an excellent introduction to bank and yank style flying. With a smaller motor and battery, this plane could easily be flown indoors in as small as a 2 court gymnasium and with a heavier set up it penatrates well enough to be flown in light to moderate wind.
-Usually ships within 4 business days. (due to the rush)
-This includes the airframe only (no electronics).
-This airframe was developed by Chad Kapper and Josh Bixler.
Weight - 8.3 oz (235 g) without battery
Wingspan - Wingspan - 25.5 inches (635 mm)

I bought this as a starter plane to get back in the hobby after 7 years of absence. I also purchased power pack B. Upon recieving, I noticed a large crack in the foam, I attempted a repair with sealing it with hot glue and patching over with tape. First flight, 100' into takeoff, the crack folded the wing section and down she went. I emailed Flite Test and recieved new airframe today, first maiden in 7 years went awesome, wonderful plane to handle with very wide speed envelope.
FT22 Big to Small

I've built a handful of these, and they all fly great. I’m sure the FliteTest guys have tried all sorts of motor combinations, and so have I, which is why I’m confident they got it right. The B Pack is perfectly sized for the FT-22. These are a lot of fun, you can build them quick so you don't feel bad to treat-em rough, even though they are very crash worthy. Really like the FT-22 and it looks great too.
It flies great!!

It’s my second plane from Flite Test.
It was easier to build than the FT-3D (one day) and it’s easy to fly too.
It’s my first “delta” but it still flies like a trainer.

this is a great plane it is very fun to fly and can do loops and rolls no problem, if you are looking for a fun plane to build in a hour this is the one and it is very cheap to build I recommend this if you have never built a rc plane, great plane Flite test

I just got into RC last year. Actually, I never bought a premade plane. The first time a plane I built flew was at Flite Fest 2014. Within minutes it had been reduced to electronics and foam-board packing peanuts. I spent the rest of the day (3:00PM to 6:00PM) building the F22 I bought at the store tent. (Lets get to the point...) This, the second plane I have ever flown (the first for more than 5 minutes) lasted for over 4 months of constant flying. At flite fest I was flying through the floppy dudes on my second day of RC flying. This plane is that easy. I wish there were an option for 6 stars...
Great Project and Result

With Josh's instructional video, you can be done in around 1.5 hours. I haven't flown it yet due to weather, but I'm sure it will fly great! Thanks FliteTest!
First one for me

very easy to build!! Never using a hot glue gun before wasn't sure what to expect, but was a snap! The speed build kit is very well thought out and everything goes together very easy. Haven't flew it yet but have no doubt it will be the go to plane for fun, plus it looks cool
Great 1 Build

I purchased this kit a while back and was very impressed. Following the build video, everything went together smoothly. I definitely will buy another speed build kit from Flite Test due to the great attention to every detail when it comes to speed build kits, along with their quality of work, not just with the foam cut out, but the wooden cut-out control horns and motor mount.
