And me, as well! Hope you will design it with flaps, similar to many Dynam models.

I think the EDFs should be optional, most of us have or have a different fan unit in mind

I started on my own lights controller with an Arduino microcontroller.
Each output can be progranned as a steady light or a strobe light.
In strobe mode, a delay can be programmed, so that not all strobes flash at the same moment, making it a bit more realistic.
An output channel can also be controlled by the value of a receiver channel. This way, I am able to switch landing lights automatically on or off, depending on the landing gear position, or top and bottom strobes depending on engines on or off.
Now I'm thinking of adding a switch to switch all lights on or off or automatic.
Big fun!

This is what I've waited for! A 747-400 kit with flaps and retracts! I'll have to have one.

Hi All,

I just received my Windrider 737 and it looks amazing. I am anxious to get building. I would really like to add flaps, spoilers, and nose gear doors. Does anyone have a good DIY for that? Also I saw in some videos on youtube, someone used polyacrylic from minwax with micro balloons on there plane. Can any tell me what should I coat and why it was used? I would also like to cover in adhesive vinyl? Any thoughts?

Thanks!
