The Japanese fleet has always fascinated me and I'm excited to finally bring one to you all! In form with my previous designs, I chose a subject that is less represented in the model community as a whole and specifically in the DTF area. So please, enjoy this plane and share your build here in this thread!

FAQ Is this a swappable?
It will accept a FT power pod as well as a new pod I have designed. The new pod is larger to accommodate a bigger battery.
Is this a good plane for a beginner to fly?
No. It's a bit too advanced for a beginner.
How do I know if I should use aluminum or basswood?
200-500w = basswood
500+ = aluminum
Are flaps required?
No, but they do help! If you're going for a heavier/faster setup, I would suggest adding them.
There is a plane I want you to design, what’s the best way to suggest it to you?
