Thanks...Its worth the wait. It was abit of a challenge at first, inasmuch as the biggest Id flown before this was the Taylorcraft at 2lbs and 48" ws. Just had to get used to a slightly longer response time. I'm in the process of "dialing myself in" to the plane.

Those are great pictures They look just like the full size I used to fly in when I lived in SE Alaska. Brings back memories.

Thanks.
I'm a former airtraffic controller and have seen most aircraft, civil and military. But, this I've not. The minute I saw it (the model)I went apecrap for it.
Been scheming up ways to enhance it, months before I got it.
If I get the chance , I will definitely find a way to fly in one of these. My Bro in law has and says its an..ahem..experience of a lifetime. Reading about those bush pilots and their "Flap tricks" amaze me.
I'm jealous Daryl, that mustve been a hoot.
Good luck with your Beav

Default NICE BEAVER...Yes I just had it stuffed....

......into my car and got it home yesterday

I will be using from Hobby City.....

Turnigy 42-50 700kv $29.95
Turnigy 60A plush speedy $42.60
Polyquest 3300,4s,25c, $117.60...27mmx48mmx150mm , this also fits the batt box forward part
which measures ID, 1.3/8" x 2.1/8" , 35mmx53mm
I got the last one in our local store/agent for Horizon $200 AD , no floats , but I will be using some fiberglass ones from Hobby City $37.50 , IF they'er not too big ...can anyone tell me how long the eflight ones are ???...these floats are 800 long , and what length floats would be scale???

Also how do you set up the flap servoes , I have a JR PCM 9X with xps..both servos have to go the same way .....

About the only thing I dont like is they could have put the main servo ply plate down lower ..at the same level as the top of the batt box...so the radio gear is mounted lower in the fuse ...the reason is that WHEN the plane flips upside down .......the radio rx/servos will be out of the water.....cause it will float (hopefully) on the wing in a nose down position...(this is how J3 cubs float inverted).....something to keep in mind when fitting the radio gear

Well i gotta get back to finishing off my latest A/P plane , ready for when 'WIGGY' arrives

I am going to use the same power plant and battery. Curious as to how it will fly with this setup...

Congrats

The full size is a truck. It hauls most of the freight to all of the isolated camps and small villages in SE Alaska.

Congratulations. Those flaps are a hoot arent they?
The Beav is beautiful in flight. I wish I knew someone I trusted enough to fly mine, so I could watch it without concentrating so hard.
