We recommend starting with the wing plate. Everything will connect to the wings and will give you a great base to work from.
Here is the installation of the side plates.
The FT-22 Raptor features these cool things called elevons.
For you newbies out there, when an aileron and an elevator love each other very much, they get together and make elevons.
They combine the functions of both ailerons and elevators into one control surface.
The channel dug out in the foam helps prevent the push-rods from flexing, keeping your controls nice and true.
We used a new technique for the nose of the FT-22. It is completely constructed of foam board making it extremely rigid and durable. Watch the video to see how!
Here, Josh makes sure to measure the angle on the vertical stabilizers, and you should too!
The FT-22 Raptor is enjoyable by new and veteran pilots alike. If you are looking for a first time build, or just something to break up your usual build styles, this is the plane for you!
