This is a hot little plane, that flies with great authority with the brushless setup. It flies really well due to the airfoil design.
The kit includes the foam parts needed to build this model, along with a fully detailed construction manual and some accessories such as the pull-pull control system. The model is not assembled or painted, so the customer needs to supply glue, paint, and other hobby tools, servos, motors, and electronics in order to put it together. This model was originally designed for small brushed motors (GWS IPS style) with 3″ or 4″ props on a 2-cell battery, but can also be set up with small brushless motors (5gm or 10gm type) with up to 5″ 3-bladed props (spinners are not included with this kit but are available from Rabid Models as an optional accessory)
Note: the FTD has a special feature unlike most of our other kits – this model’s foam parts have laser-cut “panel lines” for added realism!
Not included but available separately: we have custom-designed 3D-printed plastic spinners in the correct scale size, designed to fit the 3-bladed 5″ propellers. They are available in regular and reverse-rotation versions. Here’s a nice video made by one of our favorite customers, testing his brand-new FTD with spinners installed!
