Here's the full step by step video tutorial showing how to assemble your FT Cruiser Speed Build Swappable kit. This foam board twin engine is also available as a scratch build with the free build plans available below.
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.
You'll need to build two power pods for your twin engine swappable.
Be sure to watch the supplemental video below to see how to connect your electronics, make your custom connections as well as setup and install your FPV pod and more!
Use the included throw gauge for proper control surface throw. Be careful not to get too excessive on the elevator because pitch control is very sensitive. 30% EXPO on all surfaces works great.
