The FT Explorer carries all the simple lines, features, and characteristics that you will find with many of the most common and successful trainers, such as the Hitec Easy Star, the Sky Surfer, and of course, the Hobbyking Bixler series. The difference is that the motor, wings, tail section, and nose can all be swapped, reconfigured, or changed out to allow you to discover the performance changes of a new design. Our hope is that the community will design, learn, and share what they have created, so others can learn and grow. Just like the Mighty Mini Tiny Trainer, The FT Explorer comes with 2 wings– one for 3 channel flight and a sport wing for faster 4 channel operation. Both the B and C motor packs (c packs need 9x6 propeller) can be used on the FT Explorer to go from a light and slow trainer to a strong performing FPV platform or sport trainer.

Power Pack Compatibility:     
Flite Test Airplanes are all designed around the use of various "Power Packs" which include an inexpensive Motor, ESC, Servo, & accessory package to complete each aircraft! The compatible power pack is listed below. 

  • Power Pack B - Great lower power option for easier control.
  • Power Pack C - Improved output power for faster speeds and advanced flyers.
Tech Notes:
Power Pack B
- Offers a lighter set up, and is great for light weight building goals for trainer set up on the explorer.
Power Pack C - Increased power output, providing excellent thrust to carry the extra weight of FPV gear. Utilizes 9x6 prop.
