The FT Mini Venture is a fast build Glue-Free glider that can be built in minutes using no tools.  Using tape dots and a single 1/4 20 hex nut, you can go from the build table to the skies in no time.  

The FT Mini Venture is perfect for Classrooms, Work Shops, and many other group activities. 

Below are the 10 easy steps to build your own FT Mini Venture

1. Pop out your pieces

2. Apply tape dots over the etched circles on the nose doubler piece and remove the backing.

3. press one side of the nose doubler onto the nose of the center body of the Venture

4. Press in the hex nut into the smaller hex nut cut out.

5. Fold over the nose piece onto the other side of the Venture body.

6. Bend dihedral into the wing by flexing the wing along the etch line.  The wing should have about 1/4 to 1/2" dihedral.

7. Slide the wing into the Slot of the Body of the Venture.

8. Bend the Elevons of the wing up slightly to provide the right amount of reflex.  Adjust to best glide rate.

9. Throw the Venture level like a dart. you can use your finger in the notch to help with accuracy and control.
