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.

Usually ships in 3 business days.

The name says it all..... Cruiser
This plane was not difficult to build, it was the first one I decided to buy and build and not knowing the techniques was not a problem. Flitetest's build video really was more of a build-along video. I went step by step just as they did in the video and my plane turned out wonderful. You can see mine on their website, mine is Black/Blue on top and Black/Red on bottom. I covered it in packing tape for extra durability and of course COLOR!!! This plane flies smooth, fast, slow, whatever you like, it just plainly cruises. I have just recently added the split flaps and this plane just crawls in the sky. I have only one real recommendation that i believe should be in the specs. This plane requires nose weight!!! I solved that by buying a grayson hobby black 3 cell 5000 mAh Battery. Do not feel intimidated to give this a try. I'm sure glad I did. I love it.
