I always add electrical tape to the canopy to avoid water getting in the fuselage. I also dip the ESCs in "Corrosion X", a fantastic product I use in all my seaplanes.
The Widgeon is still in the box; when it arrived the 2 nacelles were broken. I emailed TowerHobbies but the nacelles are backorder. They tell me they will ship new ones no charge as soon as they become available.

Hey now,
The nacelles aren't packed well. Every set I've seen including mine are cracked at least a little. No wonder they're back ordered. Otherwise a nice enough looking model. Mine hits the lake Sunday.
