The Alpha was designed to be a quick and easy to fly build, an all-around best performer out of the Triad series. The FT Alpha is compatible with the FT Bravo and FT Charlie kits. Each airplanes’ wings are built to be removable from the fuselage, and can be swapped with any of the other Triad planes, giving the builder essentially 9 planes to choose from.  

The Swapping Of Wings Takes Less Than A Minute And Is Supported By Rubber Bands!

There is no need to re-calibrate the center of gravity on the aircraft after swapping, the CG remains the same no matter what combination you configure. This is great for the flight line and swapping with others, making it an enjoyable experience for all.

We want you to have an amazing experience both in building and flying. This kit comes with everything you need to complete the FT Alpha Aircraft. Push-rods, control horns, firewalls and all other items needed to make this airframe electronics ready are included in the kit. If you choose to purchase our power pack F and battery, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.

JoshĂ—2 and the Crew, thank you for creating a great way for people like me that were hesitant to enter this hobby because of the high cost to probable destruction ratio. My first plane scratch build and FLIGHT was with this Alpha and I absolutely love it and fell right into the controls after 20 some odd years of RC boats, trucks, cars that just came second nature after a couple flights. Thank you again to all of you, and what a great thing you are doing extending out to STEM. This video is my maiden, Huge smile on my face the whole time! (Next time I'll add a face cam lol)

This plane was my first Flite Test plane, I have flown it on an A pack on a 2s and 3s. I then converted to an F pack on 3s and 4s. This is THE MOST versatile plane I have, it's flown in small spaces and it does fine. I once flew it through a tree and it went strait through, I flew it for another 10 min. after that. I have crashed this plane too many times to count, I don't know how it still flies. Overall, if you want a plane that can do acrobatics, cruise, or fly fast, this is your plane. Any skill level can fly this. If i had to pick one plane to use for the rest of my life it would be the Alpha.

The package came early but I needed instructions but there weren't any.
