Description

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.

God speed build

The kit went together as per the video. I wish I could do it as easily, and look as good. I made a few changes, I never install servos in a place with no access. I mounted the servos on the outside like the ailerons. The other I installed retracts that I had left over. Waiting for first flight, expect no problems. I'll let you know how things go.

FT Cruiser build

This was a fun few hours of watching the build video and building each step with Josh !!!If you build it , you'll love the way it flies !! I used the "c" power pack for twin motors and it flies the Cruiser very well !!
