  • Product Description

    Say hello to Peter's 3rd FT design, the FT Bushwacker! This rugged little plane is based off of multiple popular full scale bush planes such as the Highlander! The FT Bushwacker is an aerobatic super short take off/landing aircraft. For extreme 3D aerobatic performance, use the large control surfaces. For extreme super STOL performance, split each aileron in half to create flaps. This plane is designed for intermediate to advanced pilots and is capable of most aerobatic maneuvers with the Power Pack C. With the Power Pack B, the Bushwacker is capable of basic aerobatics and is a little more docile.


    This includes the airframe only (no electronics). 
    This airframe is compatible with the swappable series developed by Josh Bixler.

    1. Awesome

      Just got the bushwacker a week ago the build video was easy to follow. The plane flies great . Knowing that its easily and inexpensive to replace really allows you to push yourself to try maneuvers you may not be as comfortable with . Already ordered the spear never flown a wing before. Let you know how it goes . Keeo it uo guys great job on 5th Mar 2017

    2. Fun build

      I received the plane only a few days after ordering it. I was impressed with how neatly it was packaged. I followed Petes video instructions step by step.The parts fit fine. My first build using foam core and hot glue.The fuselage is as strong as balsa. I love the big wheels, i painted mine silver and used gorilla tape for treads. the Bushwacker flies great. My next plane will be the Baby Blender. thanks for a great product Mike. on 14th Jan 2017

    4. Super nice kit and plane

      After being away from RC for 5 years I've decided to get back into it. After looking at all the options I came across Flite Test and really liked the Bushwacker, this really got me to wanting to get back in, plus all the crazy videos these guys post, This is my for DTFB build and before I was done building it I had ordered the FT Cruise and FT Kraken, I along with my boss and his son we built and finished this model this past Thursday night, 11/10, made a couple of quick and shorts flights here at work. This past Sat the 12 I had made some adjustments and flew it, after the first flight I landed and made some changes to in the radio and put in a new battery and off it went. Really got to say it flies nice considering it's been a long time since I've flown anything. My boss and his son are scratch building the Storch and can't wait to see it fly. Thank you to the Flite Test guys for making such great kits at great prices. on 14th Nov 2016

    5. What a fun plane!!!

      First time building a Flite Test plane or any foam board plane. Lots of fun!! Will be buying more! Just took it out for the maiden last night. It hopped right off the ground with half flaps and just floated around on half throttle. Practically no trim needed. It was so fun to fly!! on 5th Aug 2016

    6. Ft bushwacker

      Love it made it in one day flew it the same day looks great on 3rd Jul 2016

    7. Bushwacker

      So far so good! This was my first speed build kit, been scratch building other FT designs I love the accuracy of the speed build cuts. And having all the extra components like the Popsicle sticks, skewers and pushrods make me like it even more. Keep up the great work Flitetest !!!! on 24th Jun 2016

    8. Tricky Wheels - make sure you are watching the build video while doing it.

      I love this plane. Build was easy enough, make sure you watch the build video a few times and then follow along when you build it. The wheels gave me a hard time and I ended up making replacements because I didn't watch the build videos while I did the building. Great job FLITE TEST. on 19th Feb 2016
