Thank you for choosing the FT Simple Scout as your next fun FT project. The FT Simple Scout was designed with the same vision as many of our other Simple Series planes. Quick and easy build, Easy to fly, and able to grow with the pilot in both skills and features. This Fun Scale WW1 reconnaissance plane carries many of the features that were common on many of the Iconic aircraft of the 1920's. This makes it easy to paint it up like a wingman of the red baron or as one of Its British adversaries. Our goal with The FT Simple Scout is to introduce both a great way to learn to fly and also many fun activities like combat and flying FPV from the open Cockpit.

The FT Simple Scout makes a fantastic first plane. When built as a beginner model, the Plane only requires rudder, elevator, and throttle to y. This classic 3-channel configuration is both simple and stable for new pilots. Once comfortable with 3 channel, the world of flight opens up with the ability to add ailerons to the existing wings. As a 4 channel aircraft, the same stable flight can still be experienced, but now aerobatics, flaperons, and all the classic barnstorming maneuvers like loops, rolls, inverted flight, and extreme slow flight. Even with Its most advanced setup, the FT Simple Scout will still stall gently with wings level. Our favorite activity with The FT Simple Scout is to install and optional FPV set-up in the open Cockpit. This gives the pilot the satisfaction of flying from the same perspective as you were in the plane yourself without compromising visibility to safely fly.

If you are new to this great hobby, looking for a fun activity with your friends, or want to go back in time with an iconic blast from the past, we hope the FT Simple Scout is a source of many happy memories and a gateway to many future pilots finding success in flight. Thank you for your support and happy flying!
