The FT Explorer was designed to showcase 3 parts of what we love about this amazing hobby, Building, Flying, and Design.
The FT Explorer comes with Two different wings.
The Trainer wing gives the pilot a relaxed speed and simple three channel control. This wing, coupled with our Power Pack B motor makes for an extremely docile flyer.
The sport wing is great for those looking to combine speed and four channel flight.
The Sport wing gives the pilot the opportunity to discover and learn four channeled flight. Rolls, loops, inverted and many other aerobatic maneuvers will be easy to take on. Add the larger Power Pack C Motor to get more speed and an excellent climb rate.
Combine with our Power Pack C motor and a 9x6 prop and you will have respectable speed with a great climb rate.

Add a camera and FPV gear and your ready to Explore the world.
We love learning through design. The FT Explorer Core makes an excellent platform to design around.
Here, Peter has pushed things to the limit with his "Bronco" mod. This design can be a twin engine, VTOL, or a pusher.
Peter also designed a VTOL around the Explorer Core. Featuring an "A" tail design.
Using parts from around the shop Peter equipped his VTOL with a Tough Tilt Motor Mount.
Emax motors from our Power Pack D and a custom designed plywood tilt.
This VTOL is a great example of what we hope to be one of many designs to come in the future from the community and the FT crew.
The FT Explorer can also be reconfigured to be a glider. Add the tow release and your ready to go.
Build a second fuselage or buy a FT core kit and fly with a friend, we want memories to be made!
We can't wait to see what designs will come from your FT Explorer! Be sure to post your videos and articles of the designs that you come up with!
