The FT Cruiser is the ninth design in the swappable series. Its gentle stall characteristics and light wing loading make for a relaxed flyer. The Cruiser is also an aircraft that can grow with you. The swappable nose gives you the ability to fly FPV without any permanent modifications or a nose job to your plane. You can achieve incredible flat spins, pinwheels, or effortless knife edges by programming differential thrust. Optional split flaps are a great addition expanding its already amazing speed envelope.
Power Pack Compatibility: Flite Test Airplanes are all designed around the use of various "Power Packs" which include an inexpensive Motor, ESC, Servo, & accessory package to complete each aircraft! The compatible power pack is listed below.
Flite Test Cruiser Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1264mm)
As soon as I get the missing land gear rod, I'll be able to fly and land and determine how the build went. :>(
As for the build itself, it went well. I'm an ounce heavy per the published weight (less the battery) but that can be simply be attributed to using a different motor, a different prop, and some extra glue. ;>) The video did a pretty good job of covering the build basics.
I would give it 5 stars if all the necessary build components were included. I sent FT an e-mail and asked them to send the landing gear rod so hopefully they will. This is the first FT kit...have done a few over the years...that came up short. Easy mistake and I'm sure they will rectify the problem.
