Now made with the new Maker Foam the Flite Test Tiny Trainer is even better! The Tiny Trainer Mighty Mini is specifically designed to cover all the basics when it comes to RC Flight. Whether you are a beginner yourself, or if you are trying to bring a newcomer into this wonderful hobby, the Tiny Trainer will assist them in making every flight a great experience! This plane can be built and converted into 4 different designs that will guide you through every level of getting started flying.

Educators, group leaders, and parents looking to make a memory with a loved one can build the Tiny Trainer as a free flight (hand tossed) glider or a powered RC airplane. A little clay in the nose for balance, and your ready to toss the plane back in forth with a friend! Remove the clay and add 2 servos and you have a great 2 channel glider to learn elevator and rudder control. Swap out your glider nose for the powered nose and enter into the world of 3 channel flight. Once you are comfortable with slow lazy eights and graceful loops, remove the polyhedral wing and replace it with the included sport wing. The sport wing will teach you bank and yank skills and enter you into world of aerobatics and precision flight. Install a 3 cell battery and go from cruising to cutting up the sky with vertical lines and exhilarating speed.  

The Tiny Trainer will also get you up to speed with techniques used with all FT designs.  Every technique from "A Folds" to Folding wing airfoils will be used in this one build.

This airframe was developed around our Power Pack A electronics kit which is used with the Mighty Mini Series.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Tiny Trainer Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (940mm)
Mini trainer is a great little plane that is fun and easy to fly.  Have built 2 from speed build kits, the first from the older brown water resistant foam, the second of the new maker foam.  The brown water resistant foam build was no problem, just a bit quirky to paint.  White maker foam version was a big challenge.  The per-cut parts had several paper delamination out of the box from the edges of the foam extending inward and along the laser cut edges.   During assembly, the heat from hot glue appeared to contribute to addition delamination.  Very challenging to fix with hot glue without compounding the problem.  Once ready for maiden flight,  experienced additional paper delamination from the moisture  of where my hand touched the fusalage, and from the slightest dew on the grass. Have found maker foam not water resistant unless painted or tape covered.  Built a third hand cut Mini Trainer from maker foam and pre covered with packing tape for added color, reinforcement of the surface paper, and to give it some moisture tolerance.  Result were good but this solution adds a lot of weight to the build.  Mini Trainer is still a great plane design that I love to fly, but the maker foam in the new speed build kit is an underperforming product that is difficult to use.
