Description

The FT Tiny Trainer is a Mighty Mini that is specifically designed to cover all the basics when it comes to RC Flight. Whether you are a beginner yourself, or if you are trying to bring a newcomer into this wonderful hobby, the Tiny Trainer will assist them in making every flight a great experience! This plane can be built and converted into 4 different designs that will guide you through every level of getting started flying.

TINY TRAINER ASSEMBLY GUIDE

Educators, group leaders, and parents looking to make a memory with a loved one can build the Tiny Trainer as a free flight (hand tossed) glider or a powered RC airplane.  A little clay in the nose for balance, and your ready to toss the plane back in forth with a friend! Remove the clay and add 2 servos and you have a great 2 channel glider to learn elevator and rudder control. Swap out your glider nose for the powered nose and enter into the world of 3 channel flight. Once you are comfortable with slow lazy eights and graceful loops, remove the polyhedral wing and replace it with the included sport wing. The sport wing will teach you bank and yank skills and enter you into world of aerobatics and precision flight. Install a 3 cell battery and go from cruising to cutting up the sky with vertical lines and exhilarating speed.  

The Tiny Trainer will also get you up to speed with techniques used with all FT designs.  Every technique from "A Folds" to Folding wing airfoils will be used in this one build.

good rc products

Great model airplane depron, easy to assemble and fly. . pity that the laser cutting eat too much of the material in the interior depron. for now, all right. . .

I've had a ton of fun with this!

After several ready to fly foam kits with brushed motors and junky transmitters I finally decided to make the leap to a real RC plane. The fact that the actual airframe of the Tiny Trainer is so inexpensive takes all of the fear out of the equation. I assume over the next few weeks I'll completely destroy this plane while I improve my skills at 3-channel and teach myself to fly 4-channel for the first time. But once I'm there, I'll strip out the electronics and put them into a Mini-Mustang for less than $50! Can you beat that? My only challenge with this speed build kit is that the laser cutter they use really melts the foam back from the paper (making the edges very concave) so I found myself having to use more hot glue than I would have liked in my joints just to fill the cavity. When I'm making foamies on my own and cutting with a razor blade, I seem to get better fitting joints. That said, the ease of having everything pre-cut totally makes the speed build kits worth it!
