    Sorry, I do not. I don't think Flite Test will release them for that frame.

    Official response: due to the size of the frame, making it from anything other than carbon fiber is too flimsy.

    The FT Mini Sparrow plans have been updated to v1.1. Minor revisions for some line formatting that was incorrect on the v1.0 plans. Also updated the plans to the latest format including B-Size (11 x 17) tiles. Enjoy.

    Dan,

    I am a bit frustrated by their response. I emailed them two weeks ago for measurements (sizes) of each frame since their store does not list this information. I was told it was too much work to measure the frames. (Where else can you buy a frame without knowing the size?)

    I was hoping to compare their different frame sizes with your plans, but "due to the size of the frame," I cannot compare???

    Sorry for being negative. Typically, I am not negative. I am surprised and frustrated by the difficulty in learning basic information of their products.

    Thank you for the great service you provide by volunteering your time to make plans. You rock!

    sk8board,

    I'm pretty new when it comes to quads, but I will help you if I can. There are a few frame plans available in the first post. If you open the PDF files in Adobe Reader, you can use the measure tools measure it. If that doesn't work for you, I can take a look at the CAD files. Are you looking for the diagonal measurement from motor to motor? I think that is how quad frames are measured.

    Dan,

    Thank you. I will print-off your plans and use a ruler.

    Basically, I am looking for two things.

    1) will the Babyhawk prop guards fit the Flitetest frames? The Babyhawk guards bolt to the bottom of the motors and are 60mm apart.

    2) the frame size is the diagonal distance from motor to motor which is common information provided to consumers.

    Hi Sponz,
    thank you for the nice plans, but maybe i found an mistake?
    tried to print the simple storch and look what i found:

    is something wrong with my printer / monitor/ pdf viewer?

    the front and back of the storch is not the same size?

    Vavo, the scored area is removed from the front foam piece, so they are the same size. The removed foam leaves the paper on one side of the foam for a clean transition.

    Hmmm...that does look a little weird. But I have built the Storch from these plans, and not had any issues with the fit. the rear half of the fuselage is attached at a slight angle, which may explain for some of the misalignment of the flat patterns. No one has ever told me of an issue of the parts not working, and the plans are generated directly from the laser files that FT uses to cut the kits. You should be okay. Try it and report back if you would please.
