Welcome the newest member to the FT MINI Family... The FT Mighty Mini Arrow! As Tried and true as its name, this little beauty will have you captivated at first flight! This wing will transport you to place where no acrobatical movement is safe and where everyone in your community will have to experience it for themselves! Grab your friends, your target, stock your quiver and go shoot some "Arrows!"

This wing was created to allow for people to quickly and affordably get up in the air and flying. It is designed to fit a smaller power pack to allow for a smooth, trainer option, but its primary function is to incorporate a larger power pack for FPV wing racing!

Laser and 3D Printer Files

Here are all of the files required to build your very own Versa Wing. These links will be kept up-to-date with any bugfixes.

Laser Cut SVG Files

Laser Cutting

The Lasersaur Laser Cutter is used for laser-cutting the versa. It seems to give the best results, I had problems with the full spectrum laser cutting through the foam even at the lowest power settings.

These power settings work well on the Lasersaur with Dollar Tree foam board:

Color Action Feed Rate Power Level Passes
Blue Etch 6000 16% 1
Red Score 6000 40% 1
Black Cut 3500 100% 1
Green (Optional) Cut 3500 100% 1

3D Printing

ABS should be used for strength, and parts should be printed at high-density.

Assembly
