The FT Versa Wing is an all around performer that will meet the needs of almost any pilot. Whether it's combat, FPV, or even a delta winged trainer with gentle stall characteristics, the FT Versa Wing does it all with ease. Use a swappable power pod to fly in a tractor configuration (propeller at the front of the wing), or install the optional FT Elements Simple Firewall to operate the FT Versa Wing in a pusher configuration (propeller mounted on the back of the wing).
-Electronic Pack C is to only be used in the swappable tractor configuration. To use these electronics in a pusher configuration, you will need a smaller prop.
-Usually ships within 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.
Weight - 10.6 oz (300 g) without battery
Wingspan - 38 inches (965 mm)

5 destroyed power pods, But the Versa Wing it self is in Great condition.

Yes Sir, I'm on the 5th power pod in my tractor Versa " motor in front". She has taken many hard, nose first dirt naps. Loving the fact the wing remains mostly unharmed thanks to the power pod design, stabilizer damage occurs when cartwheeling. All crashes due to my low high speed flying. The CG is right where the provided holes are, keeping the nose 2" lower than the aft of course.
Tech Tip#303 for maximum strength cover the entire outside foamboard with packing tape prior to beginning build. Yes, it will fold over to make the leading edge. I neglected this step and taped it after completion and it has more wrinkles than an elephants butt. Wrinkles did not affect the flying characteristics. Tape both sides of the stablizers and edges just not where you glue it to the airframe.
Completely Unnecessary Review
Posted by Loren De Leon on 3rd Nov 2014
Yes, this is probably a completely unnecessary review, but I felt compelled to write the first for the Versa Wing after my recent discovery of Flite Test and their fantastic program that has me (re)addicted to RC aviation after a four year hiatus. The Versa is a.) Very affordable, b.) simple to build, c.) very customizable, and d.) fun to fly. What more do you need to know? Thank you Flite Test, you've inspired the creative/fun/science portion of my brain and I am now hopelessly addicted to your site and cannot wait to build my next platform.
Versa Wing BUILD review
Posted by Colin H. From Connecticut on 30th Oct 2014
I recently completed my build of the versa wing. I Rated it 4 stars because of a couple building problems I had. First off, the build video was not specific enough and I ended up building the airfoil upside down. This added a lot of wheight. Speaking of wheight, You have to be an expert to get the weight and CG correct. I also didn't like how Josh never told how to solder connectors. My setup is a suppo 1250 kv brushless outrunner, 30 amp esc,c3s 2200mah 50c battery, and a 6-ch reciever because I plan to make it a bomber. Don't get me wrong; it is an AWESOME PLANE and extremely fun to build, I would just recommend it as a first scratch build.
