This Flite Test design is inspired by Josh’s FT Explorer, as it follows the idea of a radically awesome, easy to build, fly, and modify design! The Bronco even uses the same core section from the FT Explorer, making it modular for all of your crazy aviation experiments.

Originally the design was a simple twin boom plane that had one fixed motor on the back to create a simple FPV ship that was durable and had lots of protection for the motor while keeping the FPV camera completely unobstructed. After the FT Explorer was released, Josh had the brilliant idea of integrating the simplistic concept of my design into a fully-fledged design capable of many configurations!

You will find that the design is easy to replicate if you’re working from plans or a copy of the kit. If you’re building the speed build kit, the process is very quick! The kit comes with three tail styles: an “A” tail for pitch and yaw control with just two servos, a lower “H” style tail that’s akin to a P-38/C-119, and a OV-10 style bronco tail that looks like an “H” with the top cut off.

So go ahead and get started with the build! By the time you start piecing together the plane, there will be tons of additional mods available on our forums. Customize your build or simply go out and try your hand at creating your own unique flyer!

Flite Test Bronco Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1086mm)
This thing rocks.
I used a C-pack instead of the B, but even then it goes vertical on 3 cell. Tracks like it's on rails. Wind doesn't even phase it, and it handles like a dream. No tip stalls, and plenty of power without torque roll means excellent, sketchy flying made easy. If you are on the fence, build one. Even on one engine this thing rocks.

Flite Test Bronco Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1086mm)
I have built and flown several FT Broncos for myself and my friends. It's a fun and easy build which yields a great flying plane. The hand-launch is very straight forward without any problems at all. My friends and I get about 5 1/2 minutes on a 2200 3 cell with mixed throttle settings. She flies like she is on rails and vertical is very good.
When we want a quick trip to the field with any easy-go plane that's a blast to fly, particularly low-and-slow, it's our go to bird.
We love this airplane, and I am quite confident you will also.
In fact, as soon as I post this review, I am starting another Bronco for another friend that wants to join the fray.

I'm on my 2nd Bronco and it's a great plane. Powerful and very stable. So disappointed they discontinued it. Consider downloading the plans and building your own.
