  • Product Description

    The FT Racer is inspired by modern day air racers and posseses a lot of the same characteristics as the planes it was designed after. This plane is a fast, crisp, precise and locked in machine that cuts through the air like an arrow. Though the FT Racer is very quick, it also has a very wide speed envelope, it tracks very well, and would be a great introduction to sport pattern flying and aerobatics. 

    -Will ship in 4 business days. (due to the rush)
    -This includes the airframe only (no electronics).
    -This airframe is compatible with the swappable series developed by Josh Bixler.

    1. Speed Build FT Racer

      First Speed build. Ordered the kit with the power pod. Everything was packaged nicely, and it's clear that care went into the entire package. Easy to build and a joy to fly. Great product. on 25th May 2015

    2. Awesome!

      It was super easy to build and flies like an arrow. I will definitely be buying another.

    3. great model

      I was happy with how the order was packed, nice and neat. Havent built it yet but im happy with it already on 5th May 2015

    4. Best Kits and Planes

      First time I built a plane and flew a plane(not first time I have flown). The whole center of balance thing is a new concept to me so pain/crashes is a powerful teacher. Can't believe how ripped foam with lots of hot glue can fly. These kits are well designed. Took advantage of the video instructions and made multiple kits from the speed build kit. Flite Test is obviously a business not in it for the money but for the love of flight.
      My six year old never wanted to watch RC planes till the rip slinger kit came in. He actually helped me build the kit and watched it fly and crash.
      You guys rock. The only thing Flite Test needs to do is make a series of kits that represent Marine Corps aviation.

    5. Speed Build FT Racer

      This is the third speed build kit that I have ordered and I am very happy with both the quality of the kit and how the airplane flies. Way to go Flite Test.
