From Josh Bixler:
"My desire for creating the FT Legacy was to not only honor the aircraft that inspired me so much but to also do the mods I longed to have in my youth. The FT Legacy can be a be an excellent trainer as a simple 3 channel single motor version. Smooth and relaxing flights with coordinated turns can be expected. Add ailerons and Split flaps and you will have a STOL Aircraft that will turn heads and perform amazing aerobatics while still being gentle and forgiving. With the twin motor version, you will be able to experience FPV, crazy aerobatics, and wild maneuverability. All these versions will also enable you to drop anything from parachutes to candy from the bomb bay located under the CG of the plane.
This little foam plane has a been a labor of love not only because it was the source of many memories for me as a child, but also because it is a small thank you to the many amazing individuals who are responsible for giving Flite Test a home. Edgewater Airpark is a reality because of the amazing contributions from our FT Family. This location will be a home to the entire FT community and the source of many memories for years to come. Thanks to you, FliteTest is going to have a very special legacy of its own and the best part is that it will be because of our amazing flying family."

I built the twin engine and I only have one complaint about this plane which is that the landing gear should be redesigned to have the wood grip a larger area of foam because if there is no wind and I don't get a very long approach then it occasionally breaks the landing gear. I feel that if Flite Test were to look into this issue then the solution would be extend the plywood sides into the sides of the bomb bay which would also give the bomb bay more rigidity because I have had to glue mine shut due to it being a weak spot in the plane.
If Flite Test reads this I feel that this is the only issue stopping this from being a 5 star plane.
