Picked this up for my birthday last month. Wasn't a big fan of the blue stickers that came with it so I painted up a new scheme. Very happy with how it turned out. Now I've got to finish up the electronics and get her in the air!!

RCG thread on the Grand Cruiser.

Started out flying gliders in the early 80's. Added glow powered planes shortly afterward. Kept flying both types until I began the "electric" path about 8 years ago. Now most of the stuff I fly is electric (some converted from glow) but something has been missing.

...until now.

I was given a gas trimmer a while back that has sat quietly in my garage. I was about to put it on Craigslist until a little voice went off in my head (okay, LOUD voice) saying I should consider building a large scale gas powered aircraft.

Long story short...I've gone from "trimmer" to "engine" in only a few days. Time to add the RC components (prop adapter, mount) and find me a 1/4 scale plane to strap it on. Hoping someone in Houston has a Piper Cub they need to unload real cheap.
