Say hello to Peter's 3rd FT design, the FT Bushwacker! This rugged little plane is based off of multiple popular full scale bush planes such as the Highlander! The FT Bushwacker is an aerobatic super short take off/landing aircraft. For extreme 3D aerobatic performance, use the large control surfaces. For extreme super STOL performance, split each aileron in half to create flaps. This plane is designed for intermediate to advanced pilots and is capable of most aerobatic maneuvers with the Power Pack C. With the Power Pack B, the Bushwacker is capable of basic aerobatics and is a little more docile.
This includes the airframe only (no electronics).
This airframe is compatible with the swappable series developed by Josh Bixler.
