Foam Test Ft Flyer Fun

by FoamTest | October 7, 2016 | (3) Posted in Just Fun

I am a strong intermediate pilot, no pro by any means, and the first experience I had with a Ft flyer was at FliteFest. Its was on the first day after the rain storm and I was amazed to see a micro Ft flyer flying around! I was curious and asked, I wish I could remember your name but I'm sure you know who you are, about it,  and then they let me fly it. It flew great, untill I accidentally crashed it into some one, but it was so small that they almost didn't notice. After this I had to get a larger one for my self, so I got a 3 pack, and it was instantly one of my favorite planes. 

I have been flying my FT Flyer for a while now and decided to make a video on it.

Here is a more recent video of mine featuring the FT Flyer.

Difficulty to fly - Beginner

Build Difficulty - Beginner

Fun - Priceless

The flyer is great for those who want to learn how to high alpha.

Before I got the Flyer I always flew around in normal circle patterns, but now I am always near the ground, seeing how slow I can go in high alpha.

It is also fun to tail touch on water! (sorry for the crummy picture quality)

This is definitely my go to plane when going anywhere, other than my guinea pig of course. If you guys would like to see more about the flyer look at FliteTest's article below.

Well I hope you guys liked the article, don't for get to comment and subscribe to my youtube channel!

Happy Flying!

I also love the FT Flyer. I learned how to fly with one. Or several. :) If you want to have a lot of fun with it try my acrobatic flyer.

I will definitely have to try that, I actually have some C power packs that I could use (for my guinea and my P-51) I'll have to try this when I get the time to!

Wow! I would ever dare to go THAT close to water with my planes! What electronics did you use?
