Time for me to check in again to add my congratulations David.
Well done!

I only wonder if a little rudder mixed in with the ailerons would keep the nose from getting that little bit high in the turns?
I always have about 5% mixed in to save me having to add it manually - being a lazy pilot!

Nicely flown anyway!

Well done David, I could see the grin from the back of your head! The change in rigging angle and your growing confidence in slowing the model up mean that you can set it down on the step, eliminating the bounce. And yes, when the water is that flat, they do all tend to alight with a bit of a slap.

My old Sunderland gets a very complimentary feature article in the April 2015 RCME by Alex Whittaker..
He really has done the model proud and explains the thinking behind it

Very kind praise indeed.. Thank you Alex
