Thank you for choosing the FT Simple Cub as your next FT project. Our passion at FliteTest is to​
introduce this great hobby to as many people as possible. It is also to make that journey as fun as​
possible. This design focuses on both of these goals more than anything. We learned a ton from the​
tiny trainer on the value of growing with one aircraft from 3 to 4 channel. We also learned that a landing​
gear adds another very important skill set and source of fun to every pilot. We did not want this design​
to end there. Versatility is also very important as well. The landing gear of the FT Simple Cub can be​
removed to either fly as a belly lander or on optional floats specially designed for this great little trainer.​
The Simple Cub is both easy to build and easy to fly. In its most simple format, 11 separate pieces of foam is all that is required to build this plane. This makes for a build time under 2 hours. We took a great amount of inspiration from the​
Horizon Super Cub LP and the Blu Baby. Both are amazing designs that we all love and want to honor. The ability for the FT Simple cub to go from 3 channel (rudder, elevator, and throttle) to 4 channel (rudder, elevator, aileron, and​
throttle) without building a new wing. The aileron mod only takes 15 minutes to add and opens a world of options like flaperons and aerobatic flying. If dropping foam bombs for target practice is your fancy, the same servo will​
double as drop mechanisms while still keeping the great flight characteristics as the original 3 channel format.​
Your support, feedback, and passion for flight is the reason we are here today! Thank you for choosing the FT Simple Cub. We are confident that this design is possibly the most rewarding to build, fly, and modify creations that we have ever created. We can't wait to see how many memories, pilots, and modifications come from our great FT Family!​
Happy Flying and go make a memory!​
