Do you want to have multiple power plants or power options for your favorite Swappable? Or maybe have a pod to design your own plane around! This pack includes 5 laser-cut firewalls made of 3/32" airplane grade plywood, and 5 laser cut power pods made from our favorite foam board. These pods and firewalls are the same pods that are included in our Swappable Speed Build Kit.
It's handy to have a couple of pods set up for trial and hopefully no error Alan caires on 22nd Nov 2015
for the price it's way easier to buy these than make them and support the team at Flight Test. They hold up just fine and for the 5 dollars for a 5 pack and firewalls, you can't beat that! Kyle on 20th Nov 2015
I've used these on several powerpods and they work great!!! I was even able to recover one from my Storch trainer that I drove into the ground messing up the fusalage and it still stayed intact and secure Scott "TuDawgs" Henry on 22nd Oct 2015
The power pods arrived in perfect condition. Really like the laser cut pieces. They always fit just right. I'm glad I found Flite Test on the computer. I have the Old Fogey as I'm getting older and not as agile on the sticks as I used to be. Surely do enjoy the videos that Josh provides. I did put an air scoop in the bottom of one power pod to keep the esc cool on one of the pods. When I use it, I place the battery on the bottom of the plane. I only have the one plane, but I have different combinations of props, motors and propellers that I use on it. I like having an extra pod handy if something goes wrong with a motor or esc. I just switch it out and continue to enjoy and fix the problem later. Jim Traxler on 10th Oct 2015
These are pretty great. I was just going to order firewalls, but I went ahead and ordered these to save time making them myself. I'm happy I did. They assemble quickly, and they are cut nicely. The holes for skewers really need to be reinforced, as the foamboard deforms easily. I used tape and gift cards. Eric Braden on 29th Jun 2015
I love the power pods. It's so convenient to have everything cut and ready to glue. Plus, I don't have to worry about cutting and drilling a firewall. Ryan on 23rd May 2015
Built two of these and it was a very easy build. The problem I had was the extreme tape. This stuff was so sticky it was like trying to put an octopus in a box. However, finally got the pod built and reinforced. Have placed it on an FT Flyer. The fit was perfect, have not made the maiden flight. Mike on 11th May 2015
I love the products these guys produce!!! These pods are a must have for any plane builder! They are a great price as well! Unknown on 4th May 2015
Just got through building the swappable power pod and FT Flyer. Building went very well but not as fast as Josh and Josh can do. But fairly easy. Did think of one thing to do . When I cut the bamboo skewers they seem to fray a little, but if you put a drop of Thin CA on the end of the skewer, I believe this will solve any future problems with the skewer. Was fun building the FT, four more of your speed build kits to do.

Built one of the pods and it went together just like the video. Added the extreme packing tape and the pod is very solid.
I am very sure I will be building the others since I am a starter in the RC flying. Mike on 28th Apr 2015
