    Old first post:

    Easy to build and easy to fly - that will be the AP Godai!

    It works with FT Power Pack C and adapts to any surface, whether it is ground, snow or water.
    The floats are still in work - thanks to localfiend for the basics!

    The flaps allow a short takeoff and landing (STOL) or just cruising in the sky.

    Here are some photos of the prototype with wheels and FPV or Ski and Micro FPV.

    Who likes belly landings, can simply omit the landing gear!

    The winglets are perfect for integrating LED boards!

    Three setups for (almost) every subsoil: earth (wheels), snow (ski) and water (floats)!
    Now I need a lake to test the floats and snow for the ski.

    What would you prefer: a closed wing with winglets or a standard wing?

    Winglets definitely - adds a cool touch, and perhaps better yaw stability too.
    I want YOU to join us in the 2018 Flite Test Forum WWII Design/Build Challenge!

    Thank you so much!

    The plan is almost finished (with the closed wing and winglets - thanks to planebreaker2000 and rockyboy for the feedback and localfiend for the float guidance). It will be soon available for free! Since i have made a few changes in the build plan, i have to test them and build a new Godai. And then i want to create a sticker set or paper replacement kit and a flightvideo. So there is still a lot to do and it takes some time until the build plan will be published.
