The Flite Test Racer is inspired by modern day air racers and has a lot of the same characteristics as the planes it was designed after. This plane is a fast, crisp, precise and locked in machine that cuts through the air like an arrow. Though the FT Racer is very quick, it also has a very wide speed envelope, it tracks very well, and would be a great introduction to sport pattern flying and aerobatics.

Flite Test Racer Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1016mm)
This is a pretty airplane.

However, I recommend taking the matte plastic tape off after the glue dries on the card stock on the fuselage. This improves the appearance in my opinion.

Also I recommend using fiber reinforced tape when building the power pod.

could never get the plane to fly strait and level. I have built and repaired many planes but this one sucks.
Dirt runways totally eat up this plane unless the landing is absolutely perfect.

Most of all the power pack is horrible. ALmost impossible to get in the plane and set correctly.
