Hi all

Recent my boom is flying hot liner sailplane.
Both of them can fly like a pylon racer and a thermal sailplane.
I love their wide speed range cruise.

Hi all
I've been enjoying AT-6 TEXAN.
I flew my TEXAN a few dozen times.
Several months ago, I replaced main gear from stock ones to case-hardened wire ones.
I noticed one of the biggest problem is weak main gears. Except touched it down perfectly, its main gear’s steel wire were bended easily in unwanted way. I decided to replace with case-hardened main gears that were made by a domestic iron factory. Their price is near to a brushless motor’s one. It sounds too expensive though, I’m very satisfied with them. They have never been vent, even in a rough landing, not crackup.
After then my AT-6 has always fine landings.

Continuing my modification.

Hi all
Last few weeks, I made sails of thin plastic sheet.
Through a polarizing lens, Sea-wind's sails were shining like a rainbow.

Hi All!
At last, I had two flights in the early morning.

This evening, a baggage had arrived. It's FMS EDGE 540.
I like this manufacture's kits that have fine quality.
I have already two plane, and more kits waiting to constract.
These kits take little time to assemble. I finished this only three hours or so.
Hope this weekend will be calm day

Hi all.
I maidened my Polaris, an amphibious seaplane.
She flies fantastic from low speed to high, like jet plane.
I love her flying with deep angle flare.

Hi all
It's pretty bbusy in business since last summer though.
I always want to have something new.
Nowadays, formie models are very useful.
”One day finishing" I named ART categories recently.
"POLARIS" is such model for me.

Last weekend Imaidened this.
Flight characteristic resembles ”Flyiing Boat”.
Delta wing is reasonable in low speed flight.
In the next chance, I'll take off from the water, as many forerunner does.

I have had a chance to get Flyzone DHC-2 Beaver.
This looks pretty cool. And the model is easy to finish.
Last sunday, I had maiden flights. It flew in moderate speed.
