My son's favorite FT plane
I bought the speed build kit on a whim, and spent an hour and a half with my son, assembling the kit once it came in. The maiden was awesome! On an A Power Pack, it was easy to fly, fast, and looks great. The sound from the A power pack motor really screams! It was a little faster than anything my 13 year old had flown before, so after about 10 flights, we lost it in the top of the tallest tree around for about 3 weeks during the early spring. It was his first time losing a plane, and he was heartbroken. When it fell down, the wings were both warped from being in the rain and snow, so we had to cut them off. My son designed a new swept wing, which we cut out of foam board, and glued over the top of the fuselage. Electronics wise, the motor and receiver were fine. We only ended up replacing the ESC. In it's second life, it now has more than 100 flights on it, and is still his favorite battery burner! Thank you Flite Test!
