    1. FT old speedster

      I could never build as well as Josh but end result was a fun to fly aircraft my grandson is learning to fly with it and he loves it on 27th Dec 2016

    2. Slow fly love

      I fell in love with this slow flying beauty ex to build and fly on 23rd May 2016

    3. Fun build, great slow flyer

      This was my first pre-cut foam build. The cuts were perfect which just added to the fun of this build. This plane flies easily and smoothly. Should be fun for beginners and more advanced pilots alike. on 23rd Mar 2016

    4. Super easy and slow

      Out of the 6 different FT planes I have scratch built this is by far the easiest to fly. It flies slow and looks really cool. Great first plane IMO. The FT Flier was easier to build but I find this one the easiest to learn with. on 10th Mar 2016

    5. Bought, Constructed, Flown

      Flite Test Team -
      Superb Aircraft. Construction could not have been more straightforward and a joy to fly. Too much fun. Looking forward to building more of your aircraft. - Jon Witten (Portland, OR)
