    The FT Viggen is a rule breaker. It's a jet that can slow down to a crawl and not stall. Yet it can be fast and track like an arrow. It has a precise and locked in feel. These characteristics make the FT Viggen a great EDF trainer. The fact that you don't have to fly fast all the time and be afraid of stalling makes the FT Viggen so enjoyable to fly. This plane will teach you about the nature and feel of an EDF power system in a safe and controlled manner. The FT Viggen can be flown on either an EDF or a propeller setup. All the way from a light 24 gram motor setup (440 grams flying weight), up to a 70mm EDF with a 4S 3000mAh (880 grams flying weight). The FT Viggen is the first Super Series speed build kit to be added to our store. The Super Series features intermediate build techniques and high performance flight characteristics.

    1. Awesome first EDF plane

      Buying my second and son getting one
      Recommend the 70 mm motor, I have 64 and its ok but takeoffs can be a little tricky with lower power
      I always get compliments on plane, plane has a great sound too
      Amazing how slow it can go

    2. Viggen

      I am still in the process of building this kit; and it is turning out to be a really fun build. I have watched videos of its flight characteristics........and I am sure that I won't be disappointed. I would definitely recommend it to any moderate to advanced builder/pilot. on 9th May 2016

    3. Viggen Speed Build Kit

      Excellent so far. I haven't built the plane yet but the pieces look perfectly cut and they should fit like a jigsaw puzzle. I've watched the build video and it looks like the step by step instructions will be very helpful. Thanks guys, keep up the good work. Looks like you have a lot of fun doing what you enjoy. on 27th Mar 2016

    4. Fly, Fly, Fly, Crash, Tape, REPEAT!! :) Pure Enjoyment

      This was my first FliteTest build as well as speed build. I did not fly in year and was waaay out of practice. This was the PERFECT build with the 70mm EDF kit from Grayson Hobbies and went together in around 4hours as I followed the build video. I setup the throws and the ESC and then threw it into the air!

      What a fantastic flying aircraft.

      This plane can fly so ridiculously slow, when I got into trouble, I would back out the throttle and correct while it floated down. I flew it a couple of times and then I lost orientation (I was too excited to paint it) and crashed it STRAIGHT into the ground. So hard, in fact the fuselage was crimped at the wings and pushed back into the void where the ESC was located.

      I pulled the fuselage bask out, pressed the sides kind of back into shape, taped a new nose on the plane (I had 4 on standby) and threw it back into the air. IT FLEW LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED AT ALL.

      After returning from a full day of flight, I ripped out all of the electronics from the $4 mess of foam, scraped off the hot glue, and am ready for VIGGEN #2.

      Thanks everyone for your videos, your resources, and for getting me back into the hobby with such fantastic COST EFFECTIVE designs. I plan to scratch build, but am SOOOO tempted to buy another speed build kit, but may hold off until the water resistant foam version is ready ;)

      I can't thank you guys enough! Keep it up and God Bless.

    6. the viggen

      Just started work on the Viggen need to make landing gear for it . Not much grass in the Desert. Rocks put holes in the planes. But that's ok and thing as they. Are needed on 11th Mar 2016

    7. Viggen

      Have not started bulb yet wanting on part so I can on 7th Mar 2016

    8. Great Build!

      This build was my first "Jet Plane" build I've ever done. It is the second speed build kit I've completed. I just received the motor and EDF I ordered, 54mm. I may have ordered too small of an EDF for it but no matter, I can use it on some other ideas I am pondering based on building this one. Maybe a smaller version of the Vigger. Mini Vigger? Maybe? As always, it's a joy to build these kits. Still looking for a radio system for all my builds that won't break the bank but until then, I'll just keep building them. Now I just have to figure out how to store them. The guest room is filling up, hahahaha on 15th Jan 2016

    9. Excellent

      I built this with a light thrust vectoring setup as my first build, and as a matter of fact, airplane. I know it might be a little advanced for a beginner like me, but I have built some landing gear so I can "hop" the plane into the air and get a feel for how it flies. It was very logical and fairly easy to build. Handles well, and I defiantly enjoy the thrust vectoring. I plan to keep this plane around for a looooot time. on 31st Dec 2015

    10. This thing is a blast!!!

      First time build, and it went together great!!!! having a blast putting it together and learning about scratch builds and foam planes!!! will be ordering another to play around with adding a few little "extras" on 18th Dec 2015
