Here's the full step by step video tutorial showing how to assemble your FT Versa Wing kit. This laser cut wing kit is also available as a scratch build with the free build plans available below.
On your speed build kit there is an extra fold that will need glued and taped. This is setup to allow for the wing to fit inside of our low rate shipping boxes.
Reinforcing the inside of the wing with hot glue will give your wing long lasting strength.
When you fold your wing there will be an off-set, you will want to keep that width consistent along the entire side when glueing.
And that's one wing complete, this kit assembles in a very short time.
When glueing your other wing, be sure to match the spacing on the back of your wing.
The wing is designed to allow for a very quick assembly and you can true up everything easily with sandpaper.
A few passes on 100 grit sandpaper is all it takes to get everything straight and fitting snuggly.
Check to see if everything lines up and you're ready to start glueing!
Some hot glue to connect your wing halves and your wing is almost complete!
1.8mm Linkage Stopper "Speed Clevis" work great for this wing.

Balance is very important with a wing and we've added a CG mark to the bottom of the wing to help you.
The battery, in combination with additional nose weight can be adjusted to keep the wing slightly nose heavy.
We hope you have fun building your FT Versa Wing! Be sure to share your builds and mods!
