    Fiberglass Firewall

    Trying my hand at building a big slow foam board plane. 5ft wingspan and about 3ft long w/ a weird hybrid split v tail section that I made up. I've got the majority of the air frame built and I'm waiting on the motor and ESC to show up. I got to the part of construction where I needed to worry...

    Firewall Dimensions - FT Cruiser Power Pod

    Hi, I'm preparing to build my first plane. I have chosen the FT Cruiser and have searched the forum but can't seem to find the dimensions for the firewall. I can start to build the Power Pods which will allow me to determine the width, but what is the height? In the video it looks like it...

    FT Firewalls and Larger Motor Mounts

    Got a new NTM 35-36 motor and the X-mount for it. Of course it's a little big for the standard FT firewall. Three mounting bolts can be squeezed onto it, but not four. Here are my ideas: 1: Make a slightly bigger firewall/powerpod 2: Put three bolts in it and use some gorilla glue...

    FT-22 Maiden Flight Disaster & Firewall Question

    So my son and I have been cutting our teeth on a Hobby Zone champ and after about a dozen rebuilds we were feeling incredibly confident so we decided to upgrade. Enter the FT-22: Okay, it was a little more than we bargained for! It's a bit of a rocket and I don't think my brain works fast...

    How long does it take to get an order from Flite Test? Bad Customer Service?

    How long does it normally take to get an order from Flite Test? I live in the Pacific Northwest, and I placed an order for some firewalls and control horns on Monday. It seems that either I entered my email address wrong or FT recorded it wrong in their records. Anyway, I never got a...

    Hardtop Spitfire modification

    I recently finished building the FT Spitfire but when it came to fitting the swappable power pod I found that the sides of the pod became stuck on the spray adhesive (on the inside of the fuselage) I had used to temporarily attach the plans to the foam board for cutting. I almost destroyed the...
