FT Simple Scout WR (952mm)


FT Simple Scout WR (952mm)



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 y, 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!

    I pulled the landing gear off so I could use a full-sized 11.1 battery which just barely fit but it flew even better than before it was smooth and did all the acrobatics I wanted to do without any problem and I belly landed it right at my feet. Excellent airplane sincerely LW

    I just got through building and flying the simple scout with a power pack b. I was amazed I can't believe how good it flew I didn't taxi it I threw it into the air and it flew like the wind. You guys are going to get rich with this high grade style of building and planes that fly this well when I put it in a spin it's fun two times around and the time it takes my bigger plane to go once around and I was shocked at how fast it's fun. Good luck guys you're a bunch of geniuses or one of you is anyway. I look forward to building and flying more of your work. Sincerely Larry Williams

  • Great flying, dependable design

    I bought the Simple Scout SBK on a whim from a brick and mortar hobby shop nearly 3 years ago. It was my first ever Flite Test build, and was a good choice for learning the basic build techniques. I've been flying my Scout now for over two and a half years, and can't begin to guess just how many flights I have on this plane. It's made more trips to the flying field than any other, and just keeps on going. I thought I was going to lose it a few weeks ago, when the battery came loose from the velcro finishing up a loop. The battery fell completely out, leaving me with absolutely no control of the place. The Scout glided to a safe touchdown in the weeds just off the end of the runway, with no damage whatsoever.

    I've already decided when this Scout finally either wears out, or crashes beyond repair, I'm building another. It's just an all-around great plane to fly.
