Default homebrew 'seamaster'

Here's a little foamy that loosely resembles a Seamaster
Built it from some parts outline drawing in a downloaded manual for a balsa gas plane.

It'll probably qualify for the ugliest built ever, but if flew great (until it went in nose first next to the water ).

Smile What do you get for under $20.00 these days?

Hi,
This is my first post here, I am addicted to seaplanes and flying boats at the moment. Here are some pics of my latest. A Supermarine Stranraer 60" span for two 140Watt brushless. Cost of foam, balsa, glue and kid's acrylics was around $20.00.
Cheers, Al.

Flyingmonkey,

I use eDVR 5in 1, 128mb flash memory, good for 5 mins. Normaly I just glue them in position on the day before flying with UHU POR. Keeping them dry I got a tip from another fellow on the net, just wrap them with cling film/sandwich wrap, and keep it wrinkle free over the lens cover. They get wet now and again but a squirt with WD40 and drain and dry and the're good to go, so far.
Al.

Got some nice video of my original Drake II at a float fly last summer.
These Drake II's are great seaplanes.

BTW, these aren't aborted landings but attempts to drag the water rudder without landing!
