The recommended throws place the flight characteristics somewhere between a 3D plane and a sport flyer.
The wheels are made from the same foam as the plane. Peter wanted them to be big but not too heavy. The robust size can hold up to tons of abuse, like the kind from short field landings.
Out of the kit the ailerons and flaps are connected to create 'flaperons'. For extreme super STOL performance, you can split each aileron in half to create flaps. You'll need two extra servos to control the flaps.
If you are looking for a more docile park flyer, we recommend using Power Pack B. You'll be able to pull off basic aerobatics with this setup; perfect if this is a 2nd or 3rd plane.
With Power Pack C, this will lean more towards 3D characteristics. Hovers, flat-spins, and those insanely short take offs and landings are all possible with this setup. If you are experienced or looking to expand your piloting skills, Power Pack C is for you.
Like all our designs, we will have FREE plans and a build video released on Wednesday!
The FT Bushwacker is Peter's 3rd design and we couldn't be more proud. There is nothing like dodging trees at your local park with this.
