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.

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 M. Dewayne Hill on 15th Jan 2016
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. Nolan on 31st Dec 2015
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" Adam on 18th Dec 2015
This was my first time working with this type of foam, normally I build EPP planes, but it was easy thanks to the build video. This is a well thought out design. I haven't had time to fly it yet, but hope to soon Decal Dennis on 5th Dec 2015
I ordered a Viggen speed build kit on 22nd Nov. I paid $35 for shipping, more than the kit. To date 4th Dec I haven't received my order, and the tracking is rubbish. I expected better service from Flitetest as this is my first order... David Noakes on 4th Dec 2015
I built two FT Viggens, one EDF and one pusher (prop). Both flew very well, but the prop-powered pusher version is actually my favorite. It looks like a jet in the air, but doesn't require all the heavy batteries and expensive equipment of an EDF.
The design is excellent, the build is very easy, and the performance is great. Get one...you'll be glad you did. John on 5th Nov 2015
Plane went together really easy even when I bought the EDF later. Using a change sun 12 blade fan with 4s nanotech battery works really good awesome thrust and can land basically floating to the ground with the throttle off. Jeff Bray on 16th Oct 2015
This is the only edf jet i have flown. It flies awesome. Super fast, super slow, it loves it all. I built it super heavy with a 1000w 68mm Hobbyking Allow Edf and a 4000mah 4s battery. To give you an idea of how heavy this build is, just those two components weigh 800g. Even still under hand launches are super easy. Coming in for a super slow basically stalling the entire time pass? No problem. I think i even yelled out at the club "try that with your $400 jet!". I get about 6 minutes of mixed flying. Heres some nose cam footage from my last flight practicing some slow passes.

I printed the plans and built this with a 70mm edf running a 5s system. It was weak on 3s and okay on 4s, but the 5 celss make this thing sound and perform amazing. Pulling about 900 watts, temps are about 175 after a 5 minute flight. Everybody is very impressed with this plane. bigbob on 9th Sep 2015
This is an amazing plane i got mine with power pack c and used 2200 mah batteries. Went together in 5 hours (my first "real" build after the 3 pack and it was super easy just time consuming)i put the servos in the rear and had major tail heavy issues so i sill think its ok to have them there but i had my battery partly in the nose with a 500 mah 3s behind it to get balance. Once i got the cg right and trimmed out is flew perfectly hands off it would tract straight as an arrow and was VERY touchy so on the least throw from the linkages and the control horn it really needed dual rates and expo (but my radio doesn't do either) but with the extreme throw came fun with acrobatics.All in all this is an amazing beautiful plane that flies great definitely deserves 5 stars.
