    1. Great Experimental Platform/Gorgeous Flight Characteristics!

      I invested in a lot of high end yet affordable fpv equipment and I plan on flying this plane off of solar power. It flies very beautifully and it feels so much lighter than those smaller wings that are so much more dense. I did not calibrate the esc's before my maiden flight which did make takeoffs quite unpredictable but I think this model could almost cruise around with one of the motors doing all the work! Knowing that this would be re-purposed for endurance and solar power use, I bought a Titan Flight 7.0AH Lithium Ion battery pack in order to save whatever weight I could while still increasing the capacity. This wing is so efficient that even with the 10A max continuous current with my endurance pack it flew wonderfully while still having plenty of power for takeoff. It just floats around. Overall, I had a lot of fun building and flying a plane so huge (in fact the biggest plane I've ever built and flown) and it was definitely kind of addicting! Normally I stray away from large airplanes as you either have the easily warping epp or eps foam or you have to spend a ton of money on balsa wood! This airplane provides a happy medium between the two and is amazingly precise for a foam plane! on 22nd Nov 2016

    2. If this is not quality American family fun....then there is no such thing!

      Josh & Josh.....this is my favorite video and build of all the things you two have done. Why? Because when the children need help, even in the middle of a production video, you two....help the children and do not correct them for interruptting the video. That was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo precious to see a child come in on business and the parents not push them away. This is exactly what Jesus told His disciples to do.... "let (suffer) the little children to come...." ). Great job guys! Never let business over shadow....family! on 26th Aug 2016

    3. Kraken

      Being a limited run,I didn't want to miss out on getting one,though I plan to fly the Versa Wing as a training platform before build any planned Krakens. Having a speed build kit on hand to use as templates,being built from Dollar Tree Foam board will enable me to experiment with airfoil shapes,electronics,& because I have a Ham Radio license,a platform for experimental radio equipment on 21st Jun 2016

    4. KRAKEN

      Waited a long time for this quick build. Cost was high but well worth it. Lights in the wing and with the lifting capacity...nothing can beat it. Wings rule.

    5. Awesome service, great kit build.

      I would have rated it 5 stars but inductions were difficult for me. That said full disclosure the guys at FliteTest did say this was not really a beginner's kit and I'm very much a beginner. It really has gone together well, I just have a few item's to finish up and then get get in the air. on 6th Jul 2015

    6. Kracken

      I received the Kracken within a week of placing the order. I inventoried the Kracken speed build contents to discover the hardware package received was for the Versa. I sent Flite Test an email and the right hardware package was sent to me immediately. Great customer service. Now I just need to find the time to build the Kracken and turn it into a fine FPV platform. on 30th Jun 2015

    7. Kraken awesome

      I got and built the Kraken ages ago and was waiting for an opportunity to maiden it. Well today was the day and I'm impressed. I flies beautifully with only a minor amount of trim adjustment necessary. This was probably due to my build rather than the design. I installed twin O.S. 2820-950 s Motors. I installed the Hobbyking LED lighting , works a treat but yet to use it at night. Love the plane. on 23rd Mar 2015

    8. Kraken

      The plane is great received fairly quick the reason for the four stars is I cannot find an email address or a phone number to contact them. They have a contact section an I used it but if I got an answer I don't know where it went it didn't come to my email. on 7th Mar 2015

    9. Props

      I sure wish this power pack C was ready 8 days ago, where can I get the correct props for the Kraken, I now have 6 blades that I can't use. on 17th Feb 2015

    10. The "Kraken"has been released!

      Hi, I received my kraken in a very timely manner, the box was a little beaten, but everything was fine inside, all parts were all in place and no bent foam, nice poster included.I will report my progress as I start to do my build, I will take pictures or videos as I work my way through the plans. I have built the F22 speed kit and a strach build Versa wing, so hopefully I can document this very large project. Keep on building.
      Thank you
