The FT Cruiser Twin Engine Swappable is the 9th foam board scratch build airplane available in our swappable series!
The FT Cruiser is a direct result of your input! The Cruiser project started when we received many requests to build a Twin swappable. The FT Cruiser was inspired by the D.H.88 Comet introduced in 1934.
This is the first scratch build to feature nacelles where the power pods are held.
We'll have build video and plans for this airplane this week and in the meantime it's also available in our store as a speed build kit.
The FT Cruiser also features an additional FPV swappable nose pod. It's a swappable swappable!
We currently have a special going on where the first 200 Speed Build Kits ordered from our store will include the FPV pod and a Split Flaps Kit! CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE!
Here's a better look at the nacelles and bottom side of this scratch build.
The unique design on the wings also seem to help the plane's flying characteristics. We didn't have any issues with tip stalling during our flights.
David setup the plane with differential thrust which gave this foam board flyer a "crazy mode".
Josh flew it for the FT Cruiser for the first time and handled it great flying FPV.
The FPV video from the plane was very smooth despite the windy flying conditions we typically have.
This plane has such a great look in the sky.
The build video will be coming soon! Stay tuned for that!
