Inspired by the Flite Test HNemesis" episode, the FT ME 262 uses the latest in foam molding techniques, that not only gives the airplane it's amazing sleek looks, but also makes it an extremely docile flyer with a wide speed envelope. A true gentle giant.
With a choice of either twin 70mm EDF engines or two Flite Test 2218 motors in a pusher prop configuration, you can choose the power plant that's best for your budget and flying style.

Really shouldn't be built as a belly lander; use some kind of landing gear instead. The center spar is too weak for repeated landings on the nacelles and the thin wing will fold in flight. Recommend perhaps supplementing wing spars with some carbon fiber rods. That said, it does look and sound awesome in the air when built with 70mm EDFs. Fairly easy flyer, too.
I ordered this a while ago and honestly I love it! The quality of the foam board is amazing in my opinion and I love the way it came out. But, it’s not all great, the instructions are um, not good, they aren’t all that comprehensive and though the build is amazing we were just kinda winging it with the occasional helping hand from said instructions. I think it would’ve been best if there were more steps or like the steps told you what piece you were supposed to be using rather then like: put exhaust on cell under the wing. Well I’m sorry the exhaust is two pieces could you tell me at least what sheet their on? No? Ok. Overall I’d say it was pretty ok.
