This is the Flite Test Micro Adventure Electric Airplane. The crew at Flite Test absolutely love civilian aircraft, and thanks to the incredible experience with the FT Commuter, FT decided to bring something similar to the PNP design. The FT Adventure has the subtle flight characteristics that you would expect from a classic, high wing trainer design and also has plenty of power and efficiency to enjoy long flight times. Versatility is really important to FT, so FT designed the Adventure to be able to fly off of a tricycle gear, as a tail dragger or even fly off water and snow with the included float kit. The FT Adventure looks just as good up close as it does in the air with a paint scheme that is not often seen in micro model aircraft. Flite Test wanted the people to feel like a version of this airplane could be found one day in their own hanger. This aircraft is the perfect size to enjoy in a small or large flying area and in some scenarios, could even be flown indoors. Being well under 250g, it does not need to be registered in many countries. For your convenience, a receiver quick connect kit has been included to make connecting your receiver as simple as possible. Regardless of your radio system of choice, you can easily enjoy this aircraft regardless of what protocol they are using. The Micro Adventure could also be a really fun FPV platform by adding a small video transmitter.

Overall the Adventure looks nice and the receiver ready feature is awesome. However, the attempt at keeping the plane scale-like with such a small wing area and high wing loading results in a high stall speed and poor flight characteristics.

Flite Test Advantage EP Beautiful plane 181 grams with 2S 500 mAh battery and pontoons installed. Easy to put together, Really like the color and trim. Going to fly without flaps and see how well it does. Maybe install later. Wing is easy to install with 1 screw. 1st time running the motor it seems a little hot. Spinner is very warm. Will check it again after a few flights. Would be nice if the flap servos were optional when purching the plane. If flaps are not going to be used then you will need to secure them permently in the up position. Would be nice if a cut out tab was already molded in place so the didn't move. If you did want to use flaps then all you would have to do is cut the molded tap and and us them.
Also I am using the floats and the water rudder barely move while connected following the construction.
Indeed pretty nice to have float + tail wheel + front wheel all in one so you can choose what you want.
Foam seems to be good quality
Great plane easy to build.
I was able to put AR620 6-Channel RC Sport Receiver inside, removing it from its box.
also if you plan to go on the water, don't forget a bit of corrosion-X
