Just wanted to put out some info on this plane. The previous thread closed and there isn't much out there on this plane. Im ready to maiden a year after receiving the kit. It is a beautiful looking plane.I dont know if TBM is going to carry this plane in the future but I would recommend the Flyzone Beaver first. Cheaper, ARF and comes with floats. Same wingspan too. Not to mention my ESM weighs in at a whopping 6 lbs 7 ozs ready to fly with a 4s 3000 lipo. This is my second fiberglass fuselage plane and they just run heavy and need lots of nose weight. 8.5 ozs in the cowling to balance.
The instruction manual was the worst I've seen, and I've seen a bunch out of china. I really wanted the ESM twin Otter but it's now out of stock and I would have second thoughts after the amount of time this assembly took. Let me get the maiden in and i'll post a video with some details.
