Kman24 beat you to it 4 posts and 2 days ago.
Would it be too much to ask that you at least read the page your posting on.

Post all you want whatala. This thread is so dead any posts should be welcomed.

Anyone yet gotten a retract version from Nitro Planes? Do they work ok? Are they holding up well? How do they compare to the retracts that PW-RC installs (used to install) in this plane?

I recently got the T-28 from NP and the retracts are nice, love them. I have had no issues with them so far. I bet you money that they are the same ones that they are putting on the new GC.

Thanks, KMan.

It's amazing how you can get these ARF planes with servoless retracts for such reasonable prices. A few years ago the retracts would have cost more than these entire planes! I'm sure they aren't the very best quality but sometimes good enough will do just fine.

I've been eying that T-28 and may just get it rather than another Cruiser. Ashamed to say that I'm too lazy to modify and install retracts in the Cruiser I now have. I've found that I enjoy building and modifying less and less - but still love to fly.

Dynam Cessna motor

Hi Guy's

Althought I my my 310, I just found a new spare motor I had purchased from Grayson Hobby a while back, as I was having problems with prop shafts at the time.
The motor is new, but not in the original dynam package. The motor new is $20 plus shipping.

I also have 2 spare props that came on the Cessna, there 9X6 3 blades.

The first $10 takes all....just send me a PM.

Thanks

It would take less effort if you would just read the page your posting on. A better method would be to read from the last time you posted on the thread, that way you are caught up on current events and don't come across as spamming. Not saying you were but kinda looks like it. Plus if you come across questions from others that you can offer insight to, that person may be grateful for your time and consideration. Gotta give you credit, at least your post was relevant to the thread, no matter how redundant it was.

On the topic of the Grand Cruiser, I look forward to having mine back in the air this weekend. She's been grounded since the start of the summer due to the battery hatch going MIA. No big deal flying with out it but I have been known to eject a lipo or 2 and it would crush me to loose this plane after its teething issues. Just in case you need plastic parts NP has the plastic parts package for half of what Grayson has it listed for.

Just caught the video review from NP on the new version GC. Retracts look identical to those on the new T-28. I am a little jealous though because this new GC comes with prewired lights. My T-28 did not...

I've a quite a few flights on mine now.All stock but fitted retracts, flaps and ubec. The retracts were HK versions and while they work perfectly I had had assumed they were sealed when infact the circuit board is totaly exposed. After a few flights had to dismantle the retracts and clean circuit board having flown on dewy (word?) grass in the mornings.
Anyway, great plane, flies well and being a rare twin turns a few heads.
Cool. Cheers
Glen

I see HK is selling a Cessna 310 now too and at a glance it looks a lot like the GC but it's only a 43" wing span and no room for retracts and I didn't see anything about flaps either. On theirs the battery sits right behind the front wheel. It looks nice but I'll stick with the GC, you can't beat the looks of a low fly-by with the wheels up.

My friend wants a Grand Cruister with the retracts from Nitroplanes. If anyone has one, what is the size of wheels you think you can increase them to. We fly off of Grass so we need larger wheels
thx

You can't put any larger wheels on it unless you remove foam to compensate.

I went from 45 to 50mm wheels, just had to deepen the wheel well a little.
Cheers
