    The Crafty Kit is a concept we have been thinking about for quite a while now! At Flite Test we have built many, many foam board airplanes and we have become fairly particular on what kinds of tools we use to put these designs together. 

    The Crafty Kit is NOT just the cheapest materials we could find that would get the job done. They are the exact tools that we have around the shop that help us work efficiently and effectively. We also wanted to utilize every aspect of the Crafty Kit, including the box. The box that this kit is shipped in unfolds to create a workspace that is screen printed with a measurement grid and an info graphic that defines a lot of the basic information regarding the hobby. 

    Ad Tech Pro 200- This is NOT your average craft store glue gun and is a substantial upgrade over your average hobby glue gun. (110v US Plug only)
    FT Hot Glue- After testing dozens and dozens of glue formulas, we have finally settled on one that works best for us. You receive two pounds (20 ten inch sticks) of glue with the crafty kit. 

    Razor Blades- We have included premium carbon tool steel blades with your kit. They retain their edge longer then any other blades we have used and of course they are replaceable. It is important to keep a fine edge to keep the build process running well. 

    Measurement- We include a high quality stainless steel 18 inch ruler and a precision triangle. (features SAE and Metric)
    Packing Tape-  Again, we have tried many different brands of packing tape and we included the kind we prefer with an attached dispenser/cutter. 
    Servo Tester- Check and center your Servos with this handy Servo Tester. With 4 outputs, you can check and center up to 4 servos at once. The 3 position switch on the side allows you to center the servo, check the full range of motion with manual or automatic control. 
    Voltage Alarm- Make sure you land before you land your aircraft long before you battery dies with this beeping Voltage alarm!

    Battery Checker- This handy little battery checker is a must have when you are flying at the field. Check your battery's overall voltage as well as each individual cell to make sure you get the most life out of your batteries. This battery checker works with 1-6 cell lithium batteries.
    Screwdriver- Size 4 phillips screwdriver with Flite Test Branding. Perfect for servo screws!
    FT Fun- Flite Test Stickers and a 10 Inch Flite Test Decal

      This kit has everything I will need to put all of my Flite Test models together. No need to run all over collecting the various tools, needed to make it easy to build Flite Test kits.
      It comes at a good price for quality tools.

    2. Newby Kit-works great

      I am just getting into the hobby after sitting on the sideline for 30 years. Built the FT Alpha with this kit. Perfect kit for the job! on 8th Feb 2017

    3. Money well-spent

      What a great kit. The contents are really well thought out. I purchased it to ensure that I have the exact tools and materials used by FliteTest in their builds. I am also appreciative of the FliteTest store for stocking/selling most of the consumable products.

      I'm not yet clear about how useful the electronic bits will be to me.

      Two suggestions ...
      1) replace the transparent triangle with one of the many orange tinted ones (far less likely to be thrown out with the scraps by mistake)
      2) the user of the small box cutter would benefit greatly from some kind of blade lock on the device to keep it from continually exposing more blade.

    4. Great quality and value for newbies

      As a newbie to the hobby it was a little daunting trying to figure out exactly what to buy - what were the nice to haves and what was essential. The FT folks really took care to assemble these items from both a value and use perspective. We already had a small glue gun, blades and tape, but as the description says, the items included in the kit are a cut above, and the electronics are truly essential.

      If I was going to add anything else it would be a pair of Z-bend pliers. Sure you can DIY, but I love how easy it is to cut and make perfect control linkages with the tool.

      Thanks FT!

    5. Everything you need but did you see my square?

      Good, high quality stuff, but do yourself a favor and paint the triangle square the moment you get get it. That little guy is crystal clear and blends in with anything you set it down on! on 14th Jan 2017

    6. The glue gun of all glue guns!

      I had purchased a glue gun from the local craft store and found that it just wasn't cutting it. I decided to pick the up the crafty kit and I couldn't be happier. The Ad tech Pro200 will provide the heat and quantity needed for any foam board build. The square, ruler, voltage alarm and other products included in the kit are also very helpful and give a peace of mind. Keep it up Flite Test! on 9th Jan 2017

    7. Quite a good thing

      A very good kit to start in making DIY planes but instead of the sticks of glue you could use a glue roll, a long piece of hot glue so you rarely have put in the sticks of glue.(I never bought this kit but a friend of mine did) on 22nd Dec 2016

    8. The kit looks great!

      I have not had a chance to use the kit yet, but it has everything you would need to get you started. With this hobby you never have enough of anything, but the kit is a great start. Anyone can buy a store bought airplane, but when you build it yourself and you see it fly there is a definite amount of pride that flows though your body. A satisfaction that says I did it! That's my plane in the sky. And when it crashes you can build another for less than twenty bucks. Let's see you do that with a store bought plane! A plane that you build has your personality to it. A store bought plane someone else s. on 16th Dec 2016

    9. Good products

      Everything works great but didn't come with the 18 inch ruler. Looked all over for it. Testers and glue gun work perfect. on 15th Dec 2016

    10. Very nice tool/builing kit

      This kit is a must for building foamboard kits. You could get all the tools locally but this is much handier, and saves needless shopping for all the tools. Quality is top notch! on 18th Nov 2016
