The Dynam Grand Cruiser Twin (aka Cesnna 310)

For our 50th Anniversary, the Wife told me to buy a nice airplane without considering the price. 1st choice was a $400 B-25, but that much would put stress not fun in flying it. Then I saw the Dynam Grand Cruiser twin for $130 at several websites. The best shipping was at Grayson Hobby; $12. My e-mail just notified me that they got in the new shipment and UPS has picked it up.
Yes, I will be installing the flaps option. Also the retracts when I can get a set reasonable. The motors will be counter-rotating instead of using the existing props. I have a pair of 2-blade CR spinners and will be looking for 3-blade CR spinners. Radio is a Spektrum DX-7. Battery is a 4s2300 A123 pack. Our club field is grass and rough: will need to reinforce the landing gear mounts to the foam.
Grayson has comments;
* locate COG at 55mm instead of 65mm.
* use 30% expo on the elevator.

If anyone has built and flown this plane, I'd like to read your comments.

ps. renewed the marriage vows for another 50 years with her.

Don't know how I missed seeing a discussion with almost 900 items
These are the most important ones for me;
#538 motors need downthrust to stop power pitch-up.
#700 ESCs need programing
#731 check that only one ESC is supplying BEC
#875 noisy motor may need internal bushing moved to front end.
