Unfortunately greatplanes discontinued this kit. Wanted one since they came out back in 2011, found one this summer online at Espirit.com. I love waterplanes and this one is very well done. I am almost done building it.
The power system I chose is the park450s and 30 amp pro escs by eflight which is nice and light to help with the already high wingloading, compared to their pby catalina. If it comes to be they are not powerful enough for my liking I have two turnigy 3530 to replace the 450s.
My biggest problem with this kit is there motor mount design. Which forces you to use their motors. So I had to modify the ply mounts to accept x mounts instead of their y mounts. More to come later...
Now have five of these scale edfs so I am putting together a number of different power setups for them, to try. On 3s and 4s
In the pics are;
alfa five blade with dons rc wicked extreme
alfa five with LSJS 4500
alfa fan with cut down gws rotor and 4600 inrunner
dons alfa clone fan,five blade rotor and a 2830 4k outrunner
xf fan with 2627 5k outrunner
The fsk 262 will most likely use two hp f16 set ups or the lighter lsjs in the same xf fans.
