Power Pod Upgrade for the Flite Test family of planes

Featured, Mods, Planes, Upgrade

After a few crashes on any foam board plane some parts start to weaken. One of the spots the starts to break or weaken is the power pod. I made a few parts to reinforce the front power pod. They are light and easy to install. They make the whole front of the plane a little more solid. Cut from lightweight birch plywood they work perfect on any Flitetest power pod.

The Kit has 3 peices.
