by FliteTest | March 28, 2016 | (8) Posted in How To

The FT Mighty Mini F-22 has all of the excitement of the full-scale F-22 packed into a miniature version!

The Mini F-22 speed build kit is laser cut into our new Water-Resistant Foam Board! Learn more about the Water-Resistant foam kit HERE!

This plane is a little more versatile indoors or in tight surroundings than its original counterpart. It's a blast to fly and just as agile as the F-22!

Building this from the plans. I noticed that the front two slots cut into the wing to receive the tabs from the fuselage are 1/8" smaller than all the other slots and the tabs they are meant to receive. Hope there isn't something else I'm missing.

This article is hard to find, unless I'm totally blind it doesn't show up with the "scratch builds" link that is on the home page that I always use to decide my next Ft build, and even typing in "mini ft22" in the search doesn't find it.

I've been building flight test plans for a while. And well I have a need for speed, so I build the mini F-22 raptor. I didn't intend for it to go to fast but, it does, we were guessing around 110-120 mph. Also this plans in durably at full speed it smashed into a corn field and with in 20min of flattening it was ready to fly again. GREAT PLAN!

hi guys,
i have designed a wing for your mini f-22 raptor. That is its a foam fighter similar to your mini f-22 raptor ,same body, same things except the wing . I had a design for a fighter and i designed it , to make it real and easy i just swapped my wing design to your raptor frame or body.Please try out this design.

yours faithfully

I don't know why this airplane hasn't had more attention. It's a whole lot of fun for a small investment in time and material. As Josh says it may not be the best jet for slow speed high alpha but it flies fast and tracks like an arrow. I like it!
