Propilot,
Are those Callie Graphics?.. Mine is a simialr scheme except yellow wingtips and floats and some three colour stripes on the nose.. If Callie already has those national markings on file it will be great...Again great looking aeroplane, only hope mine looks half as good on the water..

Most of the graphics are from Callie, I made the the red arrow on the side and the windows myself along with the walkway on top, the tire and wheels should be here tomorrow, she forgot to put them in the box. Made some videos yesterday and am trying to post them this evening.

No, I can't make Eweek. I was just at the NEAT Fair and I don't have enough vacation from my full time job to go. Work will be resuming shortly on the 314. It's been a busy summer and I just haven't been able to get much done on it.

Ok we'll headed off to eweek in the morning and fly the boat a bunch, hope to see some of you guys there, hey Zeke how about just cut me a short kit for the 314 and once you get the planking fixed you can send them later!!!, I'm starting the fly2 build goose and want to get both up and going over the winter for joe nall next year, god willing, I want to build the Martin Mars also but can only do so much, oh does the 314 have flaps I was looking at the pics and get see any. If it's like the albatross I want need them but they are fun to play with

Just in case Zeke doesn't see it in the morning before you leave ...

His prototype 314 does not have flaps in the wings, but I have been beating on him about that as well.

I can't comment on his cutting schedule.

Been thinking of getting this kit but I would be flying mostly off a grass field as my club only had 2 float fly events a year, not many lakes here in NY where I live.

Has anyone had a experience flying of a grass field with this plane and if so how did it behave? Thanks for any input anyone might have.

Hi Steve! Charliespup built his with landing gear and has had a majority of his flights from a grass field. Here's a link to his post with his maiden flight video:
