Flite Test Mini Sportster "Maker Foam" Electric Airplane Kit (584mm)
Very fun plane to build and fly. My kit included landing gear wire which wasn't in the description. I used the F pack and the 850 mAh battery add-ons. I used some toothpicks to reinforce the foam between elevator halves. My build came out a bit nose heavy but with the battery slid back a little past the wing leading edge it's not hard to get CG right. Fly's good in light gusty wind at about half throttle for 7 min or so.

I bought this to fly indoors, so I used a A pack motor and 3S 450 battery. I also reinforced the tail halves with a bent metal rod. While it didn’t work too well indoors, it’s absolutely a speed demon outside. It is so streamlined that it can keep up with my mini Mustang and actually handles very strong winds. The controls were a bit stiff at first, but I have a soft spot for this Gee Bee like racer.
