The Flite Test FT-22 is a fun flyer that beginners and advanced pilots can enjoy together. This 2 sheet design is the first of our new Simple Series, which uses the FT Elements Simple Firewall, instead of a power pod. Considering the sleek look of the FT22 and it's excessive elevon control surface throws, the FT22 is actually a very forgiving platform that we would even go as far to say that it would be a great first plane/trainer. This is an excellent introduction to bank and yank style flying. With a smaller motor and battery, this plane could easily be flown indoors in as small as a 2 court gymnasium and with a heavier set up it penetrates well enough to be flown in light to moderate wind.

Great kit easy to build. My plane is fitted with a 6x4 APC type prop, a Gforce E400 2212 2200kv motor, a 30 amp esc, 3s 1300ma 35c battery, a Storm S603 receiver, and Emax ES08a servos. Recommend using some duct tape on the outside of the nose and packing the inside of the nose with pillow type foam. Extra props are also recommended if ever landing on hard surface.

Wow! This is such an awesome plane! I tried to learn to fly on the simple cub, but had little success. Every time you crash, you break a propeller, and the $ adds up... I was drawn to this design not only because it looks so awesome, but because of the prop placement. It is in the back, so when you crash (I have many times) you don't break a propeller, which is super awesome. Is crack built this, and it was way easier to cut out of foam then any of the other models, due to its very simple design. The simple design is also makes a very easy and fun building process, and Josh does a great job explaining everything. One thing to take note of is that you'll defiantly need a power pack C to get sufficient power. On a B pack motor with a 30 amp esc running on a 1000mah 3s Lipo, I couldn't gain altitude with full down on the right stick and full throttle. Once I switched to a C pack motor, it flew awesome!! It was really my first successful flight. I really think it is the best beginner plane that flitetest has designed.

I now realize that my lack of power could have been due to the APC prop I was using, and not the reccomended HQ slow fly. Good luck with this plane everyone, and thanks flitetest for another awesome design!
