Sharp plane with great beginner features. Can it be had in the US?

This kit is sold only at Japan though regrettable.
I am the designer of this plane.
Please make a clone from a your original work.
This plane is made of EPP.

Very nice. Could you be talked into shipping one over to the US? Shipping would be covered by the purchaser of course.

This is a fine model. It is clean and simple. I see that the floats were quite a challange. Is there a link to the High Resolution Video? I could not find it.

I do also like the lightweight wheels made from beer cans!

Unfortunatly not all photos could be seen by my computer. Could you share this Idea?

That is very generous of you to post your design and give permission to clone it. Unfortunately, I don't have the skills or time to make a clone of it. Maybe someone here with more skill and more time will do it. I would buy one for sure.

I would be interested in importing one though if price+shipping were not totally outrageous.

It really is a nice concept. I like the EPP choice for materials, the floatplane novelity, the slowstick-like wing dihedral, flat bottom and ailerons!, pusher prop is up and out of the way, small size and presumed light weight, and it is a nice looking plane to boot! Seems to be the perfect pond aileron trainer.

Looks like one for a hotter wound single stator CDROM type outrunner.

Anyone know of a foam cutter person who could make the EPP parts for this. I think I could put the rest together rather easily.

Actually, I would proably look for an up-sized version too. One with a 50"-60" wing would be perfect for flying at a lake.

How could this cool little plane receive such little attention.
As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to make one.
Great looking design, I cant wait to get mine built.

I agree yukon. I wish someone with the desire to kit this for the US market would pick up on this design. It is really very good.

I am going to order up some EPP and make one of these for sure. There are only 5 parts, so it would be easy to make up a bunch of them. Time is extremely limited now though, so I cant say when I will get to it.
I have already started winding a CD rom for it though

A producer is negotiating with one shop now.
If negotiation goes smoothly, petit trainers will be able to be exported to the United States etc.

You may handcraft a petit trainer.
And please enjoy the flight.
However, please do not sell it.

Petit trainer does not have ailerons.
These are the fixed flaps.
Operation is a rudder and an elevator.
