FT-22 MKR2


The FT 22 is a fun flyer that beginners and advanced pilots can enjoy together. This design was 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.

    This was my 11yo first "big" plane. He had been using a simulator and flying smaller park fliers. We were sure we'd crash this immediately, but it flew really well, very forgiving. We put landing gear on it and had a lot of fun before crashing it too many times and retiring it. Now that we are much better fliers, I think it's time to build a new one with a bit more power!
