Before making Big ICON-A5, I made 2nd small one, too.
This time I made almost standards. And I colored it vanilla.
Some person knows small one has easy to porpoise. I’m modifying bottom (but not satisfied enough yet). I’m making every effort to improve it. The hardness of transition from taxi to planning is within an allowance by controlling technique.
And there isn’t enough area near my house; ponds, lakes and rivers to fly big one and gas planes.
About Big one, I’m considering how to improve, as everyone has been talking about weakness of nose gear, less stiffness of tail portion and not right position of main gears for taking off easily, leave the less volume of side sponson as it is. I’ve been thinking, planning ・・・ yet.
A shooting of filming shows some floats attached on it to stabilize the real one. Even the real one has less stability than have wing tip float, I love this(ICON-A5) so smart!
