Old first post:

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

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.

The floats (Setup 3 of 3) are ready!

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.:D

Thank you so much! :D

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.
