Now made of Maker Foam! The Flite Test Charlie was designed to be a quick and easy to fly build, the slowest and least agile of the Triad series.
The FT Charlie is compatible with the FT Alpha and FT Bravo kits. Each airplanes’ wings are built to be removable from the fuselage, and can be swapped with any of the other Triad planes, giving the builder essentially 9 planes to choose from.
The Swapping Of Wings Takes Less Than A Minute And Is Supported By Rubber Bands!
There is no need to re-calibrate the center of gravity on the aircraft after swapping, the CG remains the same no matter what combination you configure. This is great for the flight line and swapping with others, making it an enjoyable experience for all.
We want you to have an amazing experience both in building and flying. This kit comes with everything you need to complete the FT Bravo Aircraft. Push-rods, control horns, firewalls and all other items needed to make this airframe electronics ready are included in the kit. If you choose to purchase our power pack F and battery, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.

This plane fly's and looks great. I was able to fly it as my second plane easily enough, although I wouldn't recommend it as a first. The build was not too difficult and it came together nicely.
I used specktrum and with a bit of tinkering I was able to get everything working the right way.
I would definitely recommend this plane to any intermediate+ pilot who's been craving a slightly more snappy plane than their initial trainer.
I was able to maiden this plane on my birthday which was pretty cool!
