If you don't mind I would like them as well so I can put them in my "stockpile of plans that I may or may never get to building and is the main reason why I want to make a needle cutter" folder ;)

I'm like 99% sure they said in a video about a year ago the plane was finished and was currently being tested by the beta testers. I assume it didn't pass testing? Lol

@localfiend redesigned it and has it flying really well. But there were a couple of minor tweaks he wanted to make to the files before I make the full plan set. Unfortunately he's been extremely busy at work and hasn't had an opportunity to work on it yet. I will follow up with him to see where this is at.

Any update on the Shinden?

It won’t be an ft kit at all though, just for us - right?
Correct, won't be kitted. That's not to say that any of the designs that fall into this category will never be kitted. If the design is popular enough, and the community asks for it, Flite Test might kit a design from this series in the future.

This thread gives a little insight into where the Shinden is headed...

This new series is going to be called the FTX (Flite Test eXperimental). The FTX Shinden should be the first in the series.

With everything that has been happening with COVID-19, the FT eXperimental series has been on hold. I will follow up with Flite Test to see when we can get this back on the schedule.

Maybe a foam shinden and long ez and defiantly a starship would be a good step at some point since the wigeon look fantastic and will defiantly buy one ..Conventional planes are boring .
