FT Flyer

by FliteTest | February 10, 2011 | (24 Ratings) Posted in Reviews

Josh and Josh review this great little scratch built plane. The FT Flyer is based off of the classic Blu Dart. Our version of this model was built for about $38 in parts, including the battery.

Plans for the original Blu Dart: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=599674&highlight=bludart&page=4

Loved building this one, simple enough too. In fact, I think the landing gear was the hardest part. Fun to fly, just keep it moving forward ...

I thought mine was very tail heavy too, but I turned out to have the wrong CG location. I found that the CG suggested in the previous posts and where Josh appears to have his fingers on the video to be very far forward. Mine flies great with the CG 6.75 inches behind the front tip of the wing. It flies great just don't let it get into a nose dive. I think this means it is a bit too far forward, but that is the only negative side affect so I think I'll leave it there.

Flies great with the Turnigy d2822/14 (suppo equivalent), 18a plush esc, 3s 1250 20c rhino. 19 degrees throw, 20% expo all around. This setup can get fast, so be careful especially when going downwind.

I'm going to love this one for a while.

The FliteTest Flyer, NOT ugly when it's flying. In the UK made mine of Depron.

Have manned-up and achieved my FIRST fixed-wing-electric flights: just got back. I am absolutely euphoric. I used three 2cell batteries, about 18 minutes of flight, and it was so quiet you couldn't hear it at all when a distant sheep bleated or crow crowed: although the local lapwing wasn't thrilled. I managed to find a place on the moors where I was entirely undisturbed and the entire thing went unwitnessed. I had been putting it off for 3 months for fear of a humiliating disaster. Searched for somewhere with Google earth where I would have easy access from the road BUT be effectively invisible from the road: found a good spot 3 miles from home. Even the landings were good. Hopefully, nothing will stop me now. By this point I have about 8 more planes lined up, clearly I am insane, and it was this that FORCED me out of the house today.

I used a coat-hanger for undercarriage so my battery is actually beneath the centre of gravity.

God bless Josh Bixler, once trimmed-out it was safe to fly hands-off.

Has anyone ever modified the wing and put like a 40% k-fold and ailerons?

Just built it and flew today. This is the first plane I've ever kept in the air on the first flight. Flew beautifully. Only problem was for some reason the servos didn't work as planned. Had to swap sides with the control horns and cross the rudder control wire to the other side. No clue why, but it works.
