Help!!!! I can't stop... well not that it is a bad thing. Another plane emerges from the build table. It's the "Explorer" from Flite Test. I built it with the Standard wing and only 3 channel for now. A aileron and flap wing is available and will soon be an additional option for mine. This is Flite Tests Multi design plane as the base fuselage can be used for several different configurations or whatever your imagination can come up with. Take a look at the Flite Test videos for the Explorer and the FT Bronco.

The "Tern" 2.0 Wing... A weakness of mine, the Flying wing. The last wing I had just did not perform like I wanted it to soooo... I have been looking for a replacement for awhile. I found the plans for this one on the Flite Test forum Articles page and I liked the design. The foam is stripped of it's paper and one side of the foam sheet is covered with 2 inch clear packing tape then the wing panels are cut out. A doubled foam spar and partial foam ribs form the airfoil. I covered it with vinyl sheeting leftover from work. I hope to have it up and flying soon... Mudman1959
