You did not mention that, just my quote about the cheap price I said you could do it for...now I understand...I would not pay that either, thats why I mentioned another route...
So, are you ordering from phillip? Toysonics still have them too...
It is well worth the time it takes to put them in and some foam digging..
Good luck with it....it sure is a pretty bird in the air with wheels up...and it lands so soft that they will last a long time..

i had already ordered it from nitro planes . i should had done a search here before ordering the bird. it would had save me the time and trouble of having to order/wait/ and install the retracts myself .

My grand cruiser motors were noisy, the left more so than the right. They both seem to run alright, I just found the noise annoying. I removed one of the motors from the plane to investigate. There was nothing obviously wrong that could be seen. I removed the e-clip and brass bushing from the motor shaft then removed the armature assy. Still could find no defects. I decided to put the brass bushing at the front of the armature assy and reassemble the motor. I then put the motor back on the plane, reinstalled the prop and spinner. Ran the motor and all of the rough sounding noise is gone. I removed the other motor and did the same mod to it. Now my plane runs quiter and seems to have more power! Has anyone else tried this modification?

HF...I had similar noises, pulled the motors apart, found noting as you did back together again and they were just as bad if not worse. I eventually bent a prop shaft and replaced the shafts on both motors as there still very noisey....next time there apart I'll try your mod....thanks.

We have the lastest version of the grand cruiser coming into stock this week.
These come with retracts factory fitted and extra servos for the flaps.
PnP version only, though we have WFLY radios for those who really want RTF

Dynam is putting retract on them and are they using a servo reverser to make the flaps work correctly?

C...They'll use a pair of standard and reversed servos, in Philips (PW-RC) retract conversion he also used a pair of standard/reversed for the flaps, but it's to his adbvantage since he also sells them....

I think celm has the right thread..he just made a typo c130 was meant to be C 310. Much eaiser to type C(Cessna) 310 than "Grand Cruiser"!
