Dave, yes I've flown off the grass at our club field a number of times with the Rimfire motor. It's got plenty of power and the Seawind behaves really well on the grass. Guess I could have put some of it in the videos, but the real thrill is flying off the water.

Don, good comment on the PBY. I've been thinking about getting one also, but the PBY is really intended for a completly different style of flying. I get bored pretty easily with "scale" flying, even with my J-3 Cub, and start flying inverted low passes and doing inverted spins just to mix things up a little. The Seawind has a much larger repertoire of maneuvers to pick from than the PBY, so I'm thinking of getting a second Seawind and putting on a larger motor. I've been known to overpower a model or two in the past, however I think the E-Flite 46 may be a bit too much even for me.
