Dear All Windrider Fellows

Thank you so much for your over 12 years support, deeply appreciate...
I am 100% pure sloper and I can let you all know slope and glider bring me a lot of happiness.

In the past, all the project I will think about glider, like BD-5, 737.....I keep most of my project able to soaring on the slope because Ming is pure belong to slope and wind.

But Ming have no choice to spend more time on multi-rotor business in the pass one year, as you know I didn't start any more glider project after Swift S1 and Birdie... this is because the scale airplane market become very weak. I make a statement now Windrider will quit for scale airplane market for 1 years BUT I promise that I will back and bring a very great glider project to the market after one year.

Thanks Bruce

One issue for me to ship plane to South Africa is shipping, the shipping cost is double compare Europe and Australia. I am strongly suggest your deal with Cape Sailplane Mark.

I will be back with a classical RC sailplane after one year!

Pitcheron Model

I have a pitcheron kit called " Samurai " . From SIG
Bought it because of the uniqueness . Fiberglass fuselage and PST wings with 1/64 ply skins ( not glued yet )
It can be made with an elevator too if you wish , wings will act only in roll then .

Wow Anton , awesome !!
I just bought an "Assagia" it's a South African copy of the "Samurai"
I would really like to find a Shrike or Elf . They both use the same fuz but the Elf has polyhedral wings . There is a version of the Shrike that comes with narrower wings called the Toothpick Shrike . Here are some pics , first is the Assagia
