Flite Test Mighty Mini Speedster Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (527mm)
Our third build. Simple folds made for easy assembly. We put the bigger “F” motor in it. It flies great. The dihedral in wings gives the plane good lift. 3 channel is simple to fly. Plenty of room for electronics. I mount the battery to the motor box, on the very back, with an inch hanging off. This keeps the nose a little lighter. Also, the elevator needs a brace across it so both sides move equally
We customized a popsicle stick.

Strange that the others who have reviewed this plane have a totally different experience than me. Maybe It's because I'm so new to the hobby I don't know any better? Anyway this has become one of my favorite planes from FT. The build is pretty easy and it flys great to me. Mine may handle better because I don't put on the landing gear. My first one lasted over a year and took a lot of abuse.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Speedster Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (527mm)
So I've had no problems with mine minus the CG was a little off but something that was easily fixed. I would have to say it is definitely fun well worth buying. I think the Ft mini Speedster is a pretty good Speed Build kit plus for the price. Easy to build as it is easy to fly I highly recommend it. Just do slight correcting on the CG and you're good. That is of course if you're running a 3s lipo these do Fly a lot better with 2s Lipo. Other than that another fun kit from Flite test.
This would be my second ft speed build kit from the mini Scout. Both are good kits.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Speedster Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (527mm)
I first flew this plane that a friend made from downloaded plans, I liked it so much that I ordered the kit the night I returned home from the field, while I was waiting for the delivery I downloaded the plans and scratch built my own. This is a fun plane to build and fly, but its not fun in the wind but that is understandable based on its size. I'm going to try an extended wing on it adding 6 more inches. Very easy build. Thank You Flite Test, Keep them coming.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Speedster Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (527mm)
flite test is a wonderful company that gets people into the hobby. that said, this plane isn't one of their strong points. the idea is nice, but the short-coupled frame plus the heavy foam and electronics make this thing not too enjoyable. the airplane does fly, however, it has a high stall speed (for its size) and is very snappy and unstable. in my opinion, in order to make a good micro, the key factor is weight. a plane this size should weigh about 2.5-3 oz, not 5-6 with a battery. if one would want to build this airplane, (it does build nicely) I would personally recommend using as little glue as possible, and leaving off the landing gear.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Speedster Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (527mm)
Less than impressed with the brown paper foam board. I've been buying foam board kits here since the early days. This is the first kit I've bought since they switched to the brown foam board. The brown paper separates so easily from the foam. It takes almost nothing for a corner of the paper to lift and for it to peel off the foam. I'm hoping this is a defective batch of foam board and not the "standard". If it is, I'll be cutting my own planes from locally sourced foam board. Since I'm flying in a gym during the cold season, I don't need something that is waterproof.

Flite Test, what has happened? It wasn't like this in the beginning.
