What electric Seaplane do you fly....Pros/cons. I need one.
I am looking for an electric seaplane to take with us in our motorhome and that I can fly while we RV. We camp at lakes, rivers and other areas with water.
What are you flying and what are your likes and dislikes about it?

not really a seaplane but i fly this all the time. water proofed all the electronics with corrosion x and it works amazing. great flying plane with the floats. i have the p-47 motor in mine with stock esc and stock prop. sometimes i use a 3 blade for extra slow speed grunt. dusk flights over water with lights are magic. good luck and have fun. Walt p.s. oops! not a arf. sorry.

I fly a variety of seaplanes at the lake-GP Seawind, Flyzone Tidewater, HobbyKing skipper and a 72" flying boat called the Madge III. If you have never flown off water I would recommend the Tidewater. Very easy to take off and land, sturdy, can be disassembled and put back in its box. Cons for tidewater- 30 amp esc gets hot-upgraded mine to 40 amp, foam hinges break requiring installing new hinges( minor inconvenience) and unbalanced prop and spinner. I just balanced my prop and fly without spinner. The skipper and the seawind are both great fliers but need a little more takeoff room and a little more skill. The skipper needed to be repainted to make it more visible. My seawind has seen many crashes even been on fire and still flies!( after repairing of course!)
