The Flite Test Crafty Kit is a concept we have been thinking about for quite a while now! At Flite Test we have built many, many foam board airplanes and we have become fairly particular on what kinds of tools we use to put these designs together. 

The Crafty Kit is NOT just the cheapest materials we could find that would get the job done. They are the exact tools that we have around the shop that help us work efficiently and effectively. We also wanted to utilize every aspect of the Crafty Kit, including the box. The box that this kit is shipped in unfolds to create a workspace that is screen printed with a measurement grid and an info graphic that defines a lot of the basic information regarding the hobby. 

Includes:
  • (1) Ad Tech Pro 200
  • (20) FT Hot Glue Sticks 
  • (2) Razor Blade Knifes
  • (1) 12" Ruler (Standard & Metric)
  • (1) Packing Tape  
  • (1) Servo Tester
  • (1) Voltage Alarm
  • (1) Screwdriver (#4)
  • (1) Flite Test Sticker Pack

Be sure to read the details on this one. Pictures an 18" rule, but delivers a 12".

Good little bundle of necessities. One reviewer commented you can buy many of these things elsewhere for less, and that maybe true. However, I believe supporting FliteTest is worth every penny. One thing I am a little uncertain about is that the power packs also come with the same screwdriver, so this one item is a little redundant, but still good to have.

Servo Tester is crap. If you connect servo wrong or battery wrong, the servo is toast.
Voltage Alarm does not work.
Ad Tech Pro 200 is excellent.
FT Hot Glue Sticks are OK, but over priced.
Razor Blade Knifes are OK, but over priced.
Packing Tape is OK, but over priced.
12" Ruler (Standard & Metric) is OK.
Screwdriver is OK.
Flite Test Sticker Pack is ok.

Most all of the above can be purchased at Home Depot for quite a bit less.

This is so awesome that Flite Test offers for people like myself to have building one of your planes. I am a Mooney M20R Ovation owner and recently lost my medical so this is the only way I can fly right now. My 11 year old daughter and I have been building the F4U Corsair (she chose the plane from watching Black Sheep Squadron) and this kid is a huge help otherwise I'd be running back and forth getting what you have here all in one package.

If I was to choose what would go into this kit I would add everything you have PLUS an exacto knife, but luckily I have plenty so all is good.

The servo tester was a different version than in the “simple cub” build video. There was no manual, so had to guess how to use it.

I loved the hot glue gun: it has a nice “professional” feel to it and I love how stable it is when sitting on it’s base. And a generous amount of glue.

No manual for the voltage alarm, I’ll have to search the forums to find out how to use it... does the “crafty kit” have a video?

A shipping manifest would have been nice.

The whole order was packaged really well.

I also got power pack ‘b”, so I now have two of the flite test Phillips screw drivers. Didn’t need any, but they’re nice.

Not sure why two almost identical knifes where included.

Loved the decals.

The Crafty kit contains quite a few useful items but due to conversion rates (not your fault!) is very expensive (nearly AUD170 ).
Same beef for your postage which is expensive (OK if you live in the lower 48 but a killer anywhere else).
Looking forward to using the beast of a glue gun

I have ordered this kit along with some Mighty mini' and had it shipped to Europe.
I think you should add to the information that, next to your shipping costs, your country might charge import taxes (mine were over $60,-!)
And the gluegun comes (obviously, I guess) with a power plug for American outlets. This is useless in Europe.. had to buy an extra converter to make it work.

Everything works fine though, but since your clients come from all over the world, you might want to inform them/us about additional costs or for example power plugs. After spending almost $200,- in your shop, I had to pay about $70 more to receive my package and make everything work.
Also the crafty kit is quite expensive for the stuff that come with it...

Enough complains... Lets go fly!


P.S. Organise a Flite Fest in The Netherlands!! Perfectly flat county to build landing strips on! ;)

Hi, the kit is super. It contains what you need to build scratch planes,on anything else in foam board or cardboard.

It is a bit on the expensive side, I imagine the glue gun is the cause of this.
One thing to mention that is not stated anywhere is that the glue gun comes with an 120v socket connection. For me living in Europe, this ment going out an buying a 59 dollar transformer that handles at least 200w, which in turn made the kit that much more expensive. It would be prudent to add info around this for people to see before they buy. An possibly having an alternative glue gun for EU markets.

Oh and the box, super that you have the build mat as the inside of the box. Cool if it came coated, as glue really sticks to the raw cardboard.
Other than that, its as super kit, I hav noe build three planes on it/with it.

This kit is really nice but I'm very disappointed that the hot glue gun is 110 volt and living in Malaysia we have 230 volts so it is useless.
Hope next time you have an overseas customer enquiring you tell them this glue gun is only single voltage.
Otherwise all good.

Was not going to buy this item at first but after building the model I was glad that I did.This kit made the whole job easier.The servo tester and battery checker where two items I did not have. What can you say about the glue gun the flow and heat level of the glue was spot on. The supplied ruler backed with cork is awesome leaves no marks. If you are new to this type of model building like I was this kit is well worth the splash of cash. Everything in the kit was used in the build at one point so no unnecessary items that you will not use. Thank you Flite test for a great build and much fun was had in the process.

Great idea but not good for Australia, wrong voltage on the hot glue gun. Also, postage made kit very expensive. The kit contained everything you need to build the plane, loved the idea of the box unfolding to make a cutting mat. Thank you.

The building matt should be sent as one flat sheet. Having folds in it made my very first build cooked. It seems like a good idea to make a box out of it, but the creases are not in a great place.
