The Tiny Trainer Get Started Pack is the perfect first step into this hobby.

It comes with everything you will need to get in the air for the first time and also gives you the tools to continue to grow in the hobby. Since the beginning of Flite Test we have recognized that this great hobby is very unapproachable and overwhelming to someone who has no experience in it and no mentor to guide them in the right direction. The Tiny Trainer Get Started Pack is yet another step that we are taking to try to make this hobby more approachable.


The idea of the Get started pack is to eliminate any guess work involved when building your first scratch built airplane. This package comes with all the components needed to build the airplane and take it for its first flight!

Package Contents Include:

FT Tiny Trainer - The FT Tiny Trainer is a Mighty Mini that is specifically designed to cover all the basics when it comes to RC Flight. Whether you are a beginner yourself, or if you are trying to bring a newcomer into this wonderful hobby, the Tiny Trainer will assist them in making every flight a great experience! This plane can be built and converted into 4 different designs that will guide you through every level of getting started flying. $25 value!

Power Pack A- This electronics power pack will come with everything you need to power your airplane including the motor, electronic speed control(XT-30), servos, servo extensions, linkage stoppers, propellers, tools, and a Lipo battery bag! $55 value! 

Spektrum DXe Or Spektrum DXe 6 - Choose between DXe or DXe 6 channel Transmitters - The Transmitter is what you use to control the aircraft. This transmitter has all the features needed to fly the Tiny Trainer and offers 5 or 6 channels respectively which will allow you to try different model setups. $90-180 value! All our transmitters include receivers. 

800mAh 2s 20c Lipo Battery - This rechargeable lithium polymer battery with XT-30 connectors is a perfect match for the FT Tiny Trainer! $8.00 value! 

B3 Pro Compact Lipo Charger - This charger isn't particularly fancy, but it does do the job! It makes for a great inexpensive first LiPo charger and it also would make for a great travel charger for up to 3 cells. $12.50 Value!

Training Limiter Discs - These discs allow for novice pilots to learn how to fly without the fear of over correction and spinning out of control. $5.00 Value!

Whether you are new to the hobby, or are returning to the hobby and looking to get caught up to speed on electric planes, the Tiny Trainer Get Started Pack is an excellent solution!

Amazing Plane

I started flying with a mustang Mighty Mini, and learned that hard way that plane choice makes a big difference in learning. I built the tiny trainer, and it just flew so perfectly I was blown away. It flew exactly like a simulator I was using for the ipad called Electric RC, and to my amazement I could do loops, rolls on my first flight with it, and so did my 8 year old son (with a little help getting it up to altitude and watching the controls) Thanks for making the plans free, and for such a great model for learning!

Great beginner plane.

I like many of you picked this kit to get back into RC flying. After ordering this kit I got into Drone Racing so it took me around a year to get back to it. I have sent Flight Test some feed back but will repeat so here. First don’t get me wrong this is a great little kit and I would recommend it to anyone. With the following suggestions, first if you have never built one of these take some of the unused material and practice some glue joints both A and B folds. My technique wasn’t so good at the start but got good near the end of the plane. The paper delaminates very easily. I use Elmer’s glue. Don’t use supper glue it melts the foam. Now the hardest part the battery, depending on which one you get you will need to mount it differently then the instructions. I mounted my inside over the oval hole, on the bottom would work too. You have to adjust it to get the center of gravity correct. Last but not least Paint. Mine turned out offal, my fault. Use very light coats and lots of them. I would suggest foam save paint. I hope these suggestions help someone have a better build. I gave it a 4 because it needs some improvement.
