Now made with Maker Foam the Flite Test Guinea Pig is and even better platform to carry out the craziest experiments in the air. While it can carry a hefty payload, which can be dropped out the rear hatch, it can also be set up to carry out extreme aerobatic maneuvers. Use differential thrust to perform amazing 3d maneuvers such as harriers and knife edge. Tone down your controls and the Guinea behaves like a predictable trainer plane and is the perfect first time twin engined plane.

NOTE: Please review the build videos before removing any paper backing from the foam! Certain videos show white foam board, which is no longer produced. It has been replaced with water-resistant foam board which is brown in color.

Flite Test Guinea Pig "Maker Foam" Electric Airplane Kit (1473mm)
This GUINEA and the Mini GUINEA are the BEST fliers that FLITE TEST makes. My 14 year old built the mini (with no landing gear) which proved to be almost indestructible. We did NOT use differential thrust. Having the props rear of the nose is a HUGE PLUS for less than perfect landings. The nose takes all the abuse. We've hit nose down 2 times now, just pick it up and go again! The thing slides along grass like it has landing gear. Rolls, loops, inverted, and slow flying are ALL easy. We finished the full size guinea last week and wow ~ even better than the little guy!! Ugly as sin, but BEAUTIFUL work!!
