This is the step by step tutorial for building the FT Pun Jet, the Mighty Mini airplane designed with optional folding wings.
The FT Pun Jet was first featured in our FT Guinea Pig episode (Watch Here). After it's debut in that episode, viewer comments requesting that the swing wing experimental plane become a Speed Build Kit lead us to make it available for you!

Code named "the cupcake", this 'swing wing' plane went through many changes before its final design.

Peter came up with an easy way to magnetize his screwdriver by placing this Neodymium Ring Magnet around it which helps keep the tiny screw attached when installing servo screws!
The OLFA 5003 L-1 18mm Ratchet-Lock Heavy-Duty Utility Knife is our new favorite blade.
