Thank you for choosing the FT Simple Cub as your next FT project. Our passion at FliteTest is to introduce this great hobby to as many people as possible.It is also to make that journey as fun as possible. This design focuses on both goals more than anything. We learned a ton from the tiny trainer on the value of growing with one aircraft from 3 to 4 channel. We also learned that a landing gear adds another very important skill set and source of fun to every pilot.We did not want this design to end there.Versatility is also very important as well. The landing gear of the FT Simple Cub can be removed to either fly as a belly lander or on optional floats specially designed for this great little trainer.

FT Simple Cub Floats are sold separately!

The Simple Cub is both easy to build and easy to fly.In its most simple format, 11 separate pieces of foam is all that is required to build this plane. This makes for a build time under 2 hours. We took a great amount of inspiration from the Horizon Super Cub LP and the Blu Baby. Both are amazing designs that we all love and want to honor. The ability for the FT Simple cub to go from 3 channel (rudder, elevator, and throttle) to 4 channel (rudder, elevator, aileron, and throttle) without building a new wing. The aileron mod only takes 15 minutes to add and opens a world of options like flaperons and aerobatic flying. If dropping foam bombs for target practice is your fancy, the same servo will double as drop mechanisms while still keeping the great flight characteristics as the original 3 channel format. Your support, feedback, and passion for flight is the reason we are here today! Thank you for choosing the FT Simple Cub and for your support through your purchase. We are confident that this design is possibly the most rewarding to build, fly, and modify creations that we have ever created. We can’t wait to see how many memories, pilots, and modifications come from our great FT Family!

Happy Flying and go make a memory!

    Decided to get this plane + floats to build with my 6 yr. old grandson. He is crazy about planes!! I first got exposed to Flitetest by one of our club members and was quite impressed, though it was a more advanced model that he had built. With my grandson we followed the directions on the video and our cub is complete and I have a very happy grandson. Floats had a small QC problem but all is complete just waiting for some good flying weather. Highly recommend these planes as good learning kits!!!!

  • Great build!!!

    Just finished building the Simple Cub and it was easy and fun to build. Another home run for the Flite Test Crew. This was the first FT plane that my buddy and I built. Following Josh's build video this thing went together without a hitch. Maiden will be next and FPV to follow.

  • Excellent for beginners or experienced pilots!

    I built this as my seconds flitetest plane, after building the ft spitfire from the speed build kit. This is also my first scratch build, and it couldn't have been much easier to put together. The plans are well designed and the finished product flies like a dream. Very docile and gentle, despite the fact I'm using the C Pack with a 4s 2100mah lipo and that my foam cutting skills are not exactly precise! Would highly recommend, whether you're an experienced builder or a nooby trying to get into the hobby :)
