The Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow is finally here! The FT Sparrow is a fun bird with many personalities.  The FT Sparrow was designed to teach the builder all the basic techniques to build all of our foam board fleet,  This means every technique from A folds to fold over wings will no longer be a mystery or a source of intimidation. The Sparrow can be built as a free flight glider, or a fun 3 channel rc platform.  As a free flight, The Sparrow can be built without the use of a razor blade.  This makes it a great option for educational environments and for younger pilots to take build and fly.  This whole build can be accomplished in under 45 minutes.  Adding contols to the FT Sparrow can easily be done making this little bird go from a free flight to a speedy little 3 channel.  Fully capable of being flown with FPV gear, The Sparrow provides an unobstructed view because of its rear mounted motor.  Our hope is that this fun little design will be a useful source of both fun and education.

Dad: Tell me what you thought about building it.
Daughter (age 9): It was awesome.
Dad: Was it easy to build?
Daughter: Yeah, pretty much.
Dad: How do you like flying it?
Daughter: Great flights!
Dad: What would you tell a friend who wanted to get a Sparrow?
Daughter: I'd say you'd have to save up $16.
Dad: What else would you tell them?
Daughter: They would probably have a good time building it.
Dad: Back to you in the studio, Josh!

Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow Electric Airplane Kit (723mm)
This was a wonderful kit to build. It fly’s great. It can cruise nice and slow with very little throttle input and when you want it to go fast, it will go. Perfectly sized for my flying field (baseball diamond). I will recommend this to people thinking of building their first kit.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow Electric Airplane Kit (723mm)
Really easy build which was perfect for my kids. We built one as a free-flight glider and a second as a 4-channel with some pretty sizable ailerons. I used a 5x3.1 3-blade prop and it was a blast. It absolutely needs a big battery in the nose to balance. I used a 1300 3s which was great (before that I had an 800 3s and I had to tape a 9v battery to the nose to get a decent glide). Be really stingy with glue, especially aft of the CG.

My 7th FliteTest build. Easy build. No problems. It is a tail heavy plane by nature. Add some nose weight and be precise on C of G and you will have a fun plane. Loops, rolls and craziness are at your fingertips. I am going to paint it two drastically different colors on top and bottom so I know which is which. You can set the throws to recommend settings and have a fun time, but set it to maximum allowed and you can have much fun. Oh yeah, it takes a beating! Next one I will add extensions to motor wires and run them inside motor box...just for looks!

Amazing! this is not a robot writing. I got it to fly by angling it just right so it would turn left down a HUGE hill! I am looking forward to getting the electric kit for it!

I love this plane. I built three from downloaded plans. 1st was tail heavy. On the next two I extended the nose 3”. Power pack A is fast. Pack F with 850 mah battery, 5x5x3 prop and only 7 grams balance weight in nose is a rocket with unlimited vertical and inverted loops. I bumped my expo up to 40 for the F Pack. Handles like a sports car.
