The Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow is finally here! The FT Sparrow is a fun bird with many personalities.  The FT Sparrow was designed to teach the builder all the basic techniques to build all of our foam board fleet,  This means every technique from A folds to fold over wings will no longer be a mystery or a source of intimidation. The Sparrow can be built as a free flight glider, or a fun 3 channel rc platform.  As a free flight, The Sparrow can be built without the use of a razor blade.  This makes it a great option for educational environments and for younger pilots to take build and fly.  This whole build can be accomplished in under 45 minutes.  Adding contols to the FT Sparrow can easily be done making this little bird go from a free flight to a speedy little 3 channel.  Fully capable of being flown with FPV gear, The Sparrow provides an unobstructed view because of its rear mounted motor.  Our hope is that this fun little design will be a useful source of both fun and education.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow Electric Airplane Kit (723mm)
This was a wonderful kit to build. It fly’s great. It can cruise nice and slow with very little throttle input and when you want it to go fast, it will go. Perfectly sized for my flying field (baseball diamond). I will recommend this to people thinking of building their first kit.

Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow Electric Airplane Kit (723mm)
Amazing! this is not a robot writing. I got it to fly by angling it just right so it would turn left down a HUGE hill! I am looking forward to getting the electric kit for it!

Flite Test Mighty Mini Sparrow Electric Airplane Kit (723mm)
I love this plane. I built three from downloaded plans. 1st was tail heavy. On the next two I extended the nose 3”. Power pack A is fast. Pack F with 850 mah battery, 5x5x3 prop and only 7 grams balance weight in nose is a rocket with unlimited vertical and inverted loops. I bumped my expo up to 40 for the F Pack. Handles like a sports car.

Dad: Tell me what you thought about building it.
Daughter (age 9): It was awesome.
Dad: Was it easy to build?
Daughter: Yeah, pretty much.
Dad: How do you like flying it?
Daughter: Great flights!
Dad: What would you tell a friend who wanted to get a Sparrow?
Daughter: I'd say you'd have to save up $16.
Dad: What else would you tell them?
Daughter: They would probably have a good time building it.
Dad: Back to you in the studio, Josh!
