    Tiny Trainer With No Thrust

    I recently finished building my first Flite Test airplane. I built the Tiny Trainer from their "Getting Started" package deal. This package deal comes with an Emax 1806 motor, Emax Bl Heli 12amp ESC, a 2 cell lipo battery, and a Spektrum DXe transmitter. I attempted a maiden flight today but had...

    FT Tiny Trainer Center of Gravity

    This week I received my Tiny Trainer Get Started Package, and I just finished assembling it in the three channel configuration. After putting all of the electronics in, I found that the plane was very nose-heavy, so much so that I had to put the battery at the very back of the velcro strip to...

    Tiny Trainer motor question

    Hello, I'm new to the hobby and building a Tiny Trainer. Would this be a good motor for it? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/qav1806-2300kv-ccw.html It's already on the power pod, but I figured I'd better ask before the maiden. Will use this prop...

    3mm Depron

    The design I'm currently working on is a powered glider (think tiny trainer +30%) but using the EA 'armin' wing design and hence my question... Would it be possible to use 3mm Depron rather than the 5mm or 6mm most FT and Youtube designs suggest? I intend on covering the wing with tape AND...

Would be nice if there is a posibility to go back and update old build plans so they have all markings that the new ones have.

    Laser Cutter issues

    NO BIG DEAL, but on my FT tiny trainer were some scorch marks and several lines were not properly cut. I hope someone from flite test sees this, maybe there is a problem with the laser cutters. just thought I'd let you know :)

    New and Energized here in Eastover/Fayetteville NC

    Hello, So for my Mid-life Crisis, I went on my 41st B-day and bought a cheap Blade Nano QX 3D from my local hobby store. While I was looking to educate myself on Quads and FPV I came across the flite test crew comparing some quads with FPV. Next time I was on Youtube it suggested I watch a...

    Ft tiny trainer won't fly

    So I finally finished building my tiny trainer from the plans and took off after charging my batteries to full. Low and behold when I power the motor up and launch it flys straight into the ground. It does this over and over again with different batteries and motors. I am using a zippy 20c...

    FT Tiny Trainer First Build

    So I'm looking to get into the hobby with only 5 mins experience on a 2 channel aircraft before i crashed it. The tiny trainer kit looks like a good kit to start out with, and I plan to use my schools transmitter (Which i'm pretty sure is high-end spektrum) and field. The kit includes options...

    Tiny Trainer Motor

    This is my first build of your planes and I ordered the kit without the motor or other electronics. I have some motors that I would like to see if they are going to work with the Tiny Trainer: E-Flite EFLM7010 BL280 - 1800 KV comes with EFLA 10 Amp ESC and E-Flite RFLB4503SJ50 battery...

    Quick Tiny Trainer wing question

    I'm working to finish up a lighted Tiny Trainer which I'm going to bring along to FFest. I'm building the sport wing. I'm thinking of doubling the height of the spares (i.e. stack two pieces of foam instead of one) so that my LED strips can butt up against them pointing away from the spar and...

    Hello...your advice is much appreciated

    Hello from New Zealand I'm a complete noob in regards to r/c flight and builds. I have just brought a spektrum dx6 and phoenix 5 flight sim to get some stress free practice in. I am looking at building a ft versa and maybe a ft tiny trainer, however I'm finding the foam board hard to find. I...

    FT Tiny Trainer glider for high start

    Hi guys, so I am building my first FT model ever, and it's a TT. I want it as a 2 channel glider, so I extended the polyhedral wing by 20 cm. I will enlargen the vertical stabilizer and the rudder a bit, to still get good rudder authority. I also want to highstart it, so I reinforced the main...

    Help dialing in a Tiny Trainer

    Yesterday I barely managed 50 yards of flight in between each crash. Today it was as long as 5 minutes! And it was AWESOME! :D HOWEVER, I feel like I spent the whole time merely watching the plane instead of flying it! It only listened to my quiet suggestions to stay in the park...
