  • Product Description

    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)

    • Laser-cut foam airframe
    • FT Elements Simple Firewall
    • Push rods
    • Control horns

    1. Sweet flyer!

      NooB here! This kit went together so easy and flies nice and smooth. Set up was a breeze and the construction seems to be pretty tight and solid. Landings were a piece of cake, even for this true beginner. Thanks FT for an awesome, easy build! on 17th Nov 2015

    2. My First Kit

      I'm so glad I found Flite Test. I wanted to build, not just take something out of a box and fly it. Balsa wood kits looked pretty intense (and hard to repair when they crash) so when I found the videos for these speed build kits I was excited. This was an awesome first build kit. I think I'm just as excited to fly this as I am to build my next one. I would definitely suggest giving these speed build kits a try if you're interested in building. on 28th Aug 2015

    3. Awesome plane and I'm a total newb

      I was a bit nervous ordering this as my first plane. (Technically my 2nd but the first didn't work out...) Friends had told me to scratch build an easy fly to get the hang of it but I wanted something more visually appealing. I ordered the kit with the Power Pack B option and it's great. It's very easy to fly even for a beginner. The build was very easy with everything needed supplied, I did it in an evening after work. The plane looks great, flies great, and is fast and easy to build. How can you go wrong... on 27th Aug 2015

    4. Greatly dissatisfied

      The quality of the foam board used can be upgraded, this is less than the dollar tree foam board, for the price, it should be The Hobby Lobby quality. on 7th Aug 2015

    6. Awesome Product

      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. on 2nd Jul 2015

    7. 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. on 18th Jun 2015

    8. 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.

    9. great plane

      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 on 5th Apr 2015

    10. First Plane

      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... on 19th Mar 2015
