Flitetest blunt nose versa wing


Some parts i need to get my Mikey’s plane finished are taking forever to get here from Hobby King so i decided to try building a speedbuild kit from http://flitetest.com

Here is their build of it:

They laser cut all the parts out for you. You only need to cut a couple bevels and glue/tape things together.


2x 9 gram servos from Hobby King. Like $3.5 each.


The hot glue holds the airfoil shape really well, even before finishing the wing.


These wing tips stick down a little bit more than the wings and body, so they will probably be hitting the ground first and often. To reinforce them i glued some long zip ties along the entire bottom and around the front. This should help protect the paper and foam a little bit. I still need to press down on the body when i install the motor so i will install these last in the build.



At this point in the versa build you would glue the two wings together, but i am doing the blunt nose build (only $10 more!) so i stopped the versa build video and went to this one:




Now to get the engine mount glued together, electronics, and start thinking about painting.
