 The Racer Speed Build Kit has been discontinued.  For an improved build experience and similar flight characteristics, see the kits for these models:  FT Mustang (FLT-1074), FT Spitfire (FLT-1123), or the FT Edge 540 (FLT-1122).  If you would like to scratch build this plane with Maker Foam (FLT-2104), the plans will remain available on the Flite Test Forum.    

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. 

Power Pack Compatibility: 
Flite Test Airplanes are all designed around the use of various "Power Packs" which include an inexpensive Motor, ESC, Servo, & accessory package to complete each aircraft!
