Flite Test FT Viggen - Maiden Flight

Video Channel
Please help us to find bad videos. Broken or unappropriated video content?
This is the maiden flight of Jack’s new Flite Test Viggen patterned after the SAAB 37 Viggen. Jack bought the “Speed Build Kit” and in just a few hours he had a new, fun and inexpensive EDF that flies great. The donor plane for the electronics was an old Airfield RC 70mm EDF Jet from Nitroplanes.
The airframe was developed by David Windestål of Flite Test fame and after seeing how well this plane flies, we think he really got this one right (and of course we have a lot of respect for David anyway)! It performs well in normal flight as well as in high alpha.
Please forgive me for a mistake I made in the video. I put a caption in that says it is flying on a 3s 2200 lipo when in fact, it is using a 4s 2200. This is me spanking myself!
According to Flite Test:
The FT Viggen is a rule breaker. It's a jet that can slow down to a crawl and not stall. Yet it can be fast and track like an arrow. It has a precise and locked in feel. These characteristics make the FT Viggen a great EDF trainer. The fact that you don't have to fly fast all the time and be afraid of stalling makes the FT Viggen so enjoyable to fly. This plane will teach you about the nature and feel of an EDF power system in a safe and controlled manner. The FT Viggen can be flown on either an EDF or a propeller setup. All the way from a light 24 gram motor setup (440 grams flying weight), up to a 70mm EDF with a 4S 3000mAh (880 grams flying weight). The FT Viggen is the first Super Series speed build kit to be added to our store. The Super Series features intermediate build techniques and high performance flight characteristics.
After seeing the plane fly we can say the guys at Flite Test weren’t lying, it flies just as advertised!
