Flite Test was started in a garage by a group of individuals passionate about flight and community. Your one-stop gateway to the most exciting hobby in the world!.
Designed By: Josh Bixler
After 6 years of Flite Test foamys, the Red Baron flies again! The FT DR1 Triplane was designed to build fast, fly slow and look great both on the ground and in the air. We put a lot of effort into taking a design that is known for being a handful and making easy to both build and fly. The FT DR1 Triplane is a 3 channel slow fly aircraft that can turn on a dime and be flown in a very small location. Loops, barrel rolls, wing overs and many other classic maneuvers are all possible with this little warbird. The FT DR1 Triplane is also a perfect companion for its arch rival the FT SE5, an iconic British biplane that flew the skies and shared lead with its German nemesis. Our hope is that the DR1 will be the source of many happy memories as you take to the skies and recreate epic battles with your friends in your own backyard.
We want you to have an amazing experience both in building and flying, This kit comes with everything you need to complete the FT DR1. Push-rods, control horns, firewalls and all other items needed to make this airframe electronics ready are included in the kit. If you choose to purchase our power pack F and wheels, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.
