The Flite Test Dart was developed to take all the great accomplishments in FPV and micro technology and combine it with a fun and simple wing that not only flies great, but can take a beating! The FT Dart uses 2 micro brushless motors to provide stable flight and differential thrust. This feature give the pilot the ability to yaw the wing as well as perform crazy flat spins and pinwheel maneuvers. Whether you are flying line of sight or FPV, you will enjoy the great speed envelope at 2-4 cell operation. Our favorite activity is using this tiny wing is to fly and explore while capturing HD footage from the optional RunCam Micro Split.
If you like 3d printing, files are available at thingiverse to make a great FPV module that mounts right on the nose for a sleek and functional look.
Dart was a pit of a pain to build, all that soldering. A pain to route the wires in the wings; there was no room. Thee leading edges of both wings tore, and I've built 3 other F.T. planes too. Why they tore? I don't know. I just taped 'em over with masking tape.
But what a flier! The flat spins are terrific! A real show stopper. Worth the bit of hassle building it!

Flite Test Dart Electric Airplane Kit
This is a fun build, but this is my favorite FT DIY to fly. Very smooth, very docile, but quite quick as well. Differential power is also very cool.
Make sure you init/sync the ESCs before you fly or that differential power will confound you.
