The FT 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. 

This includes the airframe only (no electronics).
This airframe is compatible with the swappable series developed by Josh Bixler.

This plane just rocks! My first flight test build. Soooo much faster with the speed build. Went together perfectly. Was done with the build and paint in one day. Flying the next. Will be buying many many more speed build kits. Ordered the power pack with it. Really a great deal. Love these guys. Great jub!

First flite test build !

This my first flite test build. I am just getting back into RC after retiring. I have built many a Glow fuel planes so I dove into this build . Went together great with the help of your crafty building kit. Cant wait to fly! Will be using a trainer plane before putting this one in the air but these foamboard kits are the way to go until I get my fling legs back. After having fun with these foam kits I will try my glow models. Very inexpensive compared to a glow plane. THANKS Bob
