I'm stuck with 50cc because of transportation and financial reasons but thats just my case. To jump from glow to 100cc is a d**n big gap. Not saying no one has done it, and people will certainly continue to do so, if they have the money. That being said, setting up a GS plane as compared to a 90size, while similar, is a massive difference. This being from a safety standpoint alone (not too often you'll here me say that). If you have lots of experience in larger glow stuff, and have lots of people around you to help you out then maybe going to 100cc won't be that bad. Chances are you will want to go bigger after getting a 50cc but I think its a good way to get into gassers and finding out the way to properly setup a GS plane.

This again is my opinion, don't listen to it if you don't want, lol.

Chris brings up a very good point and you would be well advised to truly give this some thought.

Hi all, Crossing the Boarder with big stuff can really add $$$. Living close most of us ship just to the wall (outfit called US postal address) Then drive over and pick up. There is no duty on model stuff but UPS will ding you huge on brokerage plus GST/PST then charge transport from boarder to you on top of the freight charged in the US. Just over $100.00 more on a 72" Extra in one box plus the $65.00 US for freight charged to get from Texas to me. Yes $365.00 turned into $500.00 ++ real fast. Ended up I would have been better off going through Great Hobbies for an Aeroworks plane.
