OK Fly Boys heres my latest job on Great Planes PBY Catalina Rc Electric Float Plane.
First the plane is super easy to build. The parts are OK but I decided to use my own Control rods with my XT900 servos.
Purchased some Turnigy 2830-1100K Motors with a 8x6 3 blade prop. and used Multistar 30 Amp ESCs x 2.

I had to fix the tubes that hold the control rods so I cut the Support wood and made a new one 2 Inches back as that is where it has to be to stop the slop !
Then as I wanted to make this plane a Private owned 50's pleasure cruiser, I built a back lounge room complete with Saturday Evening Post and News papers from WW2

I added a BLUE led to the back area and Cut the LE and added a 5mm White led to each wing. I will make a sweet cockpit after the first flight if she lands OK

I will test fly on the lake 2 Mar oh and let ya know how she go

OK Flew today at Cubcrafter beach resort and the winds picked up as we set up cameras and planes.
I said to late now for backing out, so I set the PBY in the water and gave it a push.
Full power and up off a wave and she was airborne. A few left clicks as I forgot to CG the L-R balance but flew like a dream and I aint talking Freddie's.

As a Picture says a 1000 words I will now let you Enjoy.
OK Boys, Enjoy the picture show

Ok Guys Captain Bucks back in action on the RC groups. Been busy working and building so here's my latest Toy.

Fly zones DH Beaver. I added the Hobby king Motor Sound system, and it works ok.
Glued the Speaker to the top wing behind the wing support rods with hot-glue and it holds great.

Took me 4 days to figure out the pontoon rudder system as the Servo that comes with the plane is to week for turning the back rudder and handling the water rudders. So I added a MG116 servo just behind the back seat and made a pull-pull system.

I will u/l all flight vids from all planes here
