For Explorers

The FT Explorer carries all the simple lines, features, and characteristics that you will find with many of the most common and successful trainers, such as the Hitec Easy Star, the Sky Surfer, and of course, the Hobbyking Bixler series. The difference is that the motor, wings, tail section, and nose can all be swapped, reconfigured, or changed out to allow you to discover the performance changes of a new design. Our hope is that the community will design, learn, and share what they have created, so others can learn and grow. Just like the Mighty Mini Tiny Trainer, The FT Explorer comes with 2 wings– one for 3 channel flight and a sport wing for faster 4 channel operation.

Depending on the RC components the Explorer can be a lightweight and leisurely trainer, which is strong enough and perfect for FPV or even a sport trainer.

The kit

The kit of the FT Explorer is made of the new water-resistant FT Foam Board. This lightweight but stable material can be worked extremely well and it can be finished according to your preference. The construction of the model is easy to perform even for unexperienced beginners. The RC components are separately available. The assembled model has a weight (without RC components) of about 493 grams and a wingspan of about 1447 mm.
