Flite Test Mighty Mini Scout Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (609mm)
I built the Mighty Mini Scout as my first scratch/kit-built airplane. Building it using the plans, not the speed-build kit, I made some mistakes in the build process (such as gluing the wing together with less under-camber on one side than the other) that made it uncontrollable at first. I also found the servos pretty difficult to install in the small hole provided, but once again, I was a newbie at building. I later built a new wing and installed it without difficulty, but even so, the plane still did not fly particularly well. By this time, my skill level was progressed to the point that this plane no longer held my interest, so I scrapped its electronics to build an FT Long EZ (which flies better).
Since I didn't build the Scout using the Speed-build kit, and it was my first build, I can't confidently say my problems were due to the design, but either way, my experience was not very positive with this plane. I would recommend something more along the lines of the FT Simple Cub as a first FT plane: the bigger size makes it much more straight forward and relaxing to assemble.
Hope this helps!

Flite Test Mighty Mini Scout Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (609mm)
I have to say that this is a very impressive little airplane. Got my kit and assembly was quick and easy. Not to mention I do like the options of Electronics currently available and all you really need is a good radio. So far overall it is definitely meeting my expectations and definitely helping me to get back into the hobby. Considering I haven't flown in so long and thanks to the mini Scout I'm getting back into the swing on the sticks. Excellent for beginner and trainer. So overall I highly recommend this product.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Scout Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (609mm)
I have three FT planes. All have been scratch built from plans that were downloaded. Of the three, this is my favorite so far. It flies really well and makes a great park flyer. Looking forward to building it's big brother soon. Also looking forward to buying a speed build kit to see how much different it is.
