The Flite Test Bravo was designed to be a quick and challenging to fly build, this is the fastest and most agile plane of the Triad series. The FT Bravo is compatible with the FT Alpha 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 Bravo 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 a battery, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.
Power Pack Compatibility: Flite Test Airplanes are all designed around the use of various "Power Packs" which include an inexpensive Motor, ESC, Servo, & accessory package to complete each aircraft!

After flying the Alpha FT model, I bought this one, mainly to use up another quad motor I had. Like my Alpha model, they do not need 9g servos but that was all I had on hand. The long servo arm was too much for good control so eventually the control rod ended up on the innermost hole of the servo arm. The 2205 2300Kv motor is more than the model needs but does give it unlimited vertical. But it also makes it hard to launch at more than half throttle. It's not as controllable as my Alpha model but still loads of fun to fly. Because they are small, don't get too far out. I'm using a 60A ESC on mine with a 5x4.5 prop and running on 1300 to 1500mAh packs and getting about 4 mins flight times in hard open throttle flying. Less throttle could easily go to 5 or 6 mins.

Flite Test Bravo Electric Airplane Kit (736mm)
What a fast plane, so much fun. Just make sure that you use a 6" reverse prop as recommended in the build video. Unfortunately I have crashed the plain on maiden and need to rebuild the nose section. Will double the nose and add some carbon inside. Ensure to have a good painting as the silouette is very flat. We even FPV on this small airplane.
