Description

Look there in the sky!!....Its a BIRD ...its a PLANE its.... BOTH!!! The FT Mighty Mini Sparrow is finally here!!  

The FT Sparrow is a fun bird with many personalities.  The FT Sparrow was designed to teach the builder all the basic techniques to build all of our foam board fleet,  This means every technique from A folds to fold over wings will no longer be a mystery or a source of intimidation. The Sparrow can be built as a free flight glider, or a fun 3 channel rc platform.  As a free flight, The Sparrow can be built without the use of a razor blade.  This makes it a great option for educational environments and for younger pilots to take build and fly.  This whole build can be accomplished in under 45 minutes.  Adding contols to the FT Sparrow can easily be done making this little bird go from a free flight to a speedy little 3 channel.  Fully capable of being flown with FPV gear, The Sparrow provides an unobstructed view because of its rear mounted motor.  Our hope is that this fun little design will be a useful source of both fun and education.  Be sure to check out ftstem.com for more information on our educational solutions.

"Best plane I've ever built."

Iv'e only built 2 planes, but this one hands down the best. I originally bought the FT-Tiny Trainer because it seemed like the best beginner plane. It is very underpowered on a 2s, but if flew fine. 3 months later, I decided to scratch build the FT-Sparrow. I was able to cram it onto one sheet of 20x30 Ross foam board, and I reused the A pack from the trainer. On a 2s, perfectly balanced, I was able to fly the whole length of the field with no hands on the sticks. What I love about this plane is that it flies in a straight line no matter what direction. (Exept for straight up, of course. 3s might be able to do that). Thanks for designing an outstanding airplane, Flitetest!

Great!! Easy to fly cheap rc plane!!

I was bord the other day so I decided to scratch build one of these using some old crashed quad parts and was amazed at how much fun it was! Now I'm ordering a kit to make a nicer one! It dose take a lot of weight in the nose but because of it he flys great in the wind for it's size. Definitely recommend just take your time with these and it will pay off
