Description

The FT Viggen is a rule breaker. It's a jet that can slow down to a crawl and not stall. Yet it can be fast and track like an arrow. It has a precise and locked in feel. These characteristics make the FT Viggen a great EDF trainer. The fact that you don't have to fly fast all the time and be afraid of stalling makes the FT Viggen so enjoyable to fly. This plane will teach you about the nature and feel of an EDF power system in a safe and controlled manner. The FT Viggen can be flown on either an EDF or a propeller setup. All the way from a light 24 gram motor setup (440 grams flying weight), up to a 70mm EDF with a 4S 3000mAh (880 grams flying weight). The FT Viggen is the first Super Series speed build kit to be added to our store. The Super Series features intermediate build techniques and high performance flight characteristics.

Wow!

This is actually my second Viggen, Both fly (flew, in the case of the first) amazing. I destroyed my motor on the first when I was testing the motor and accidentally sucked a battery alarm into the intake. The lesson there was to make sure the area around your intake is very clear before you hit the throttle. I could have probably repaired it, but instead I chose to just build a second. Both builds were super easy and took about 2 hours. With a 2200mAH 4S and 70 mm setup, this thing flies like it's on rails. I use an Eagle Tree Guardian so it's unbelievably stable, but even with it disabled, it is a pure joy to fly. My flying skills are barely beyond that of a novice, and yet this EDF is without a doubt, the easiest plane I have flown. The only problem I have had is I keep burning up servos. I think it's because the Guardian requires no deflection limits be programmed and I like to really test the limits of this little jet. So far, I have burnt out 3 elevon servos, yet it is so easy to fly, I have successfully landed it. Last night I installed Park Zone 13 gr metal gear servos, so hopefully that will solve my problem. I honestly can't say anything bad about the design--the servo problems are self-induced (I think) and whether I fly fast or super slow, the Viggen is remarkably easy to fly. Landings are a breeze and with my setup, launches are almost too easy. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to test the EDF waters.

Great jet!!!

I have had several different types of jets and this is the best by far. I recently crashed mine due to a clumsy hand launch so i bought a new one to replace it, the only problem is after a little repair the old one still flys great! Im using the edf out of a old habu and running it on a 2500 4cell.
