The Flite Test Mini Corsair is a new and exciting chapter for or FT Mini line up. The Mini Corsair is as rewarding to build as it is to fly. That is because of our collaboration with designer John Overstreet. John has partnered with Flite Test to use his amazing design skills mixed with classic Flite Test build techniques to reimagine the original FT Mighty Mini Corsair. This new design offers smooth rounded edges and a wide open area inside the model for your electronics and also an option FT Aura 5 flight controller. This Flight controller can make the Mini Corsair a great trainer and also remove adverse effects of gusty wind.

The Mini Corsair uses the Power Pack F for great power and efficiency. Once you have built your plane, scuff, paint, and add the included Decals for a beautiful scale but personal look. You can also partner the Mini Corsair with the  Mini Zero for awesome aerial battles and fun memories with your friends and family.

Flite Test Mini Corsair Electric Airplane Kit (737mm)
Once I saw there was a video of this model being built, I ordered one. I have built many of the FT planes. Some were done using "speed build" kits; others were built using the free plans and Dollar Tree foam board. It was kind of confusing watching the build video with John using the new white foam board (no contrast between foam and paper) compared to the old brown FT board that was in the kit I received. Also, John and Josh have different styles of building. No offense John, but you are no "hand model" and wow, you use a ton more glue than Josh. "More glue does not mean more strength." Anyway, I'm glad I have built so many planes using foam board. I was able to "wing" it on some parts of this build. To me, this was not beginner-friendly build (maybe it's not meant to be), especially with the build video from John. Keep up the great design work John and let Josh do the videos. Also use the same color board that you send out in the kits please. In the end, the build turned out looking nice. I haven't been able to maiden her yet because of weather.

Flite Test Mini Corsair Electric Airplane Kit (737mm)
Just received my Mini Corsair speed build kit in the mail - I was under the impression that it would be maker foam, as stated in the new build video. I'm excited to build this plane, but I must admit I'm quite disappointed that it's the older foam board. Still going to build it, but I think they should be clearer about what's in the package. At 1:53 in the build video he says "...all of our speed build kits are made with our new maker foam..." (https://youtu.be/DhL9o9isABc?t=112). Apparently this isn't true, or at least it isn't yet. I'll update this review after I build the kit, but for now I'm only going to give it three stars for misleading advertising.

Very nice. I have built and flown the Master Series Corsair, and this is a very nice variant. Some of the weaker points of the Master Series version have been addressed well (weak fuselage bulkhead joins).

Nice job, FT. Keep up the great work!

Flite Test Mini Corsair Electric Airplane Kit (737mm)
This is one of the nicest kits I have done from flite test. The kit is very complete and even includes decals. There were some parts (sticks) that were included that aren't explained or apparently used in the build video. I do agree with a couple of other reviews that I was expecting white maker foam based on the store description and build video. Not a problem with me because I have used both. I found the control rods routing created too much bend and made them difficult to move so I repositioned the holes in the former and routed them to avoid as much bend as possible. This made movement easy. I like the new techniques that are used with this 'mini' kit. It should help prepare me to do a master series someday. Looking forward to getting this done and flying.

Flite Test Mini Corsair Electric Airplane Kit (737mm)
I got the speed build kit. It was fun to make, and fun to fly, at first. It landed a bit rough. I flew it again, it still flew good, until the wing folded.
I got a new one, this time, as I was turning, the battery came loose and pushed the hatch out. The plane landed in some bushes and was ok. The next time it flew, the wing folded.
I think this plane would be a lot better with a plywood spar where the wings attach, and straps to attach the battery instead of Velcro.

Flite Test Mini Corsair Electric Airplane Kit (737mm)
The kit that I received from your company did not include plans concerning the actual building of the mini corsair. I found a Flight Test RC build on YouTube online and my grandson and I thought we were off to the races. In the you tube the technician was working with a white foam and paper airplane, so when I looked at ours it was covered with brown paper, I thought that the brown paper on our model was just a protective cover for the white foam and we removed the brown paper from the beginning wing section of the build. It wasn't until later that we discovered that the brown paper was actually the necessary paper for the build. Also, not included in the kit were control horns for the allerons nor any push rods.

I was hoping that we could build and fly this model while I was visiting my grandson for Christmas, as he is just getting into rc flying, but this turned out to impossible.

Please send detailed plans and also have your You Tube technician put together the exact models that you are selling and distributing.
