After 6 years of Flite Test foamies, an epic WW1 battle is at the edge of your fingerprints! The FT SE5 Biplane was designed to build fast, fly slow and look great both on the ground and in the air. We put a lot of effort into taking a design that is known for being a handful and making easy to both build and fly. The FT SE5 Biplane is a 3 channel slow fly aircraft that can turn on a dime and be flown in a very small location. Loops, barrel rolls, wing overs and many other classic maneuvers are all possible with this little warbird. The FT SE5 Biplane is also a perfect companion for its arch rival the FT DR1, an iconic German Triplane that flew the skies and shared lead with its British nemesis. Our hope is that the SE5 will be the source of many happy memories as you take to the skies and recreate epic battles with your friends in your own backyard.
We want you to have an amazing experience both in building and flying, This kit comes with everything you need to complete the FT DR1. Push-rods, control horns, firewalls and all other items needed to make this airframe electronics ready are included in the kit. If you choose to purchase our power pack F and wheels, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.

FT Mini SE5 Biplane Specs:
Please watch recent build videos before removing any paper from the foam! Some videos may use white foam board, which is no longer available and has now been replaced with water-resistant foam board.
This is a great project to build and a lot of fun to fly but it demands piloting skills far above my own, I spend more time repairing it than flying it but making the parts is easy and I enjoy it, the fuselage is rock solid I am still flying the original one and it has taken some hard hits and begs for more I did reinforce the nose with packing tape to keep the paper from coming off I just destroyed my 3rd set of wings today, I added ailerons to see if I could keep it under control longer they worked good I used the extra two servos from the F kit for them but i think the next set I make will be back to original spec and just keep chugging along. when I first heard of these kits I was skeptical of there durability but they are tough just as tough as a $300 equivalent. This is definitely not for beginners as far as flying goes, as far as building goes it is really easy especially with the videos. Zeb on 6th Mar 2017
THE PLANE YOU SENT WAS A DR1 TRIPLANE AND NOT THE SE5 BIPLANE I ORDERED.THE DR1 WAS A GOOD BUILD, QUALITY PARTS AND GOOD INSTRUCTION. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO FLYING IT, WAITING FOR BATTERIES. Paul onstad on 26th Feb 2017
Sorry but I haven't unboxed it as yet? I just had too many builds to start and haven't gotten to it? EddyZ on 14th Jan 2017
This is an awesome biplane. I would say it has similar flying characteristics to the mini speedster. Its also super durable compared to the UMX series and very cheap in comparison. It was really fun to build, looks great, and flies even better. Have about 30 bucks in electronics in it. Beware though, biplanes are a little more delicate compared to a normal one winged airplane because of it's wing struts, but it is so worth it. 11/10!!!! Bryce Greene on 30th Dec 2016
