The FT Racer is inspired by modern day air racers and has a lot of the same characteristics as the planes it was designed after. This plane is a fast, crisp, precise and locked in machine that cuts through the air like an arrow. Though the FT Racer is very quick, it also has a very wide speed envelope, it tracks very well, and would be a great introduction to sport pattern flying and aerobatics.
This airframe is compatible with the swappable series developed by Josh Bixler.
This includes the airframe only (no electronics).
