    FT Versa Wing - BUILD

    Here's the full step by step video tutorial showing how to assemble your FT Versa Wing kit.
    This laser cut wing kit is also available as a scratch build with the free build plans available below.

    On your speed build kit there is an extra fold that will need glued and taped. This is setup to allow for the wing to fit inside of our low rate shipping boxes.

    Reinforcing the inside of the wing with hot glue will give your wing long lasting strength.

    When you fold your wing there will be an off-set, you will want to keep that width consistent along the entire side when glueing.

    And that's one wing complete, this kit assembles in a very short time.

    When glueing your other wing, be sure to match the spacing on the back of your wing.

    The wing is designed to allow for a very quick assembly and you can true up everything easily with sandpaper.

    A few passes on 100 grit sandpaper is all it takes to get everything straight and fitting snuggly.

    Check to see if everything lines up and you're ready to start glueing!

    Some hot glue to connect your wing halves and your wing is almost complete!

    1.8mm Linkage Stopper "Speed Clevis" work great for this wing.

    The FT Control Horns come with the speed build kit and can be purchased separately for those of you scratch building.

    A zip-tie connected to a BBQ skewer to secure the back your power pod.

    Balance is very important with a wing and we've added a CG mark to the bottom of the wing to help you.

    The battery, in combination with additional nose weight can be adjusted to keep the wing slightly nose heavy.

    We hope you have fun building your FT Versa Wing! Be sure to share your builds and mods!

    This is awesome! I already ordered mine along with the FT 3D! I can't wait for the pusher video, keep up the great work, guys!
    Yes, I DO call that a landing! It's on the ground, isn't it?!
    It's pronounced "excuse me 720" or call me Gary, my mom always did.

    Just a quick thought if you are using the FT Versa for combat or for trainer i think it would be a good idea to make detachable servos.

    I am going to try to make a scartch-built slope soaring version, with no motor and the following mods:
    1. Mount the servos entirely internal, with holes through the top surface to the ailerons.
    2. A hatch in the top side, for battery charging and receiver access.
    3. Overlapping wing spars like the Spitfire (not sure how I'll do this yet)

    If it's a fail, I will simply toss a motor mount on the top side and make it a combat wing.

    Anyone have tips, before I start cutting out?

    I've built the Baby Blender, FT Flyer, Nutball and Old Fogey from the free downloaded plans with no problems. (thanks
    for making them FREE!).

    I'm having trouble trying to put this plan together as some pages did not print with page numbers
    and I don't think they fit together as 8 pieces across by 2 rows. Anyone else had trouble or figured"
    it out who can help?

    I figured out I can get the page numbers from the downloaded tiled pdf.

    Now I just need the page number layout.

    I think it's 2 plans 4x2 pages. I got the full size plans and that is how they are laid out. Usually tiled is a derivative...

    Mind the servo wires...
    I was able to "extract" it without too much mess and the build is progressing!
