Didnt think of weight or attitude with flaps. Also, will a 3530 brushless fit?
Cheers

When you fly with electrict you should always think about weight ,light e- planes always fly better than heavy ones. I would use the size they call for from the ones i have seen fly last summer with the stock setup are kinda fast and get off the water well. joe

Thanks Joe. 2830 it will be. I dont like under powered aircraft but this one must be ok with stock setup.

I am in

located a Widgeon so I am on my way to getting it built. It has been on my list since it came out.
Thanks for all the great info in this thread.
I did the counter rotating 3 blades mod and the plane is going together well.
Hope to have it in the air next week

weather blues

I have the plane finished but the weather has been awful this week here in Maine
I keep waiting for summer to break out.
Hopefully It will get better soon. I have a bad case of cabin fever

Pics would be cool. And when you fly it you realise of course that without vid 'it never happened.'

On average PBY has a lot more 'crowd pleaser' aspects as many people's fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers flew in them and so they've heard all the old stories about them.

According to their web page gravesrc.com (my LHS) has exactly one left.

I've got a brand new one, never flown. I have it about 99% complete. I have the recommended rimfire motors, esc, etc.. 3 blade counter rotating props, everything but receiver and battery. I'd be willing to sell, if you are interested. I love the looks of the plane, just don't have the time to finish, program and fly. I mainly focus on gassers.

I just bought this arf online and would like to know which of these motors I have would be best? the eflight park 450 950kv? or turnigy 3530 1000kv
I plan on changing paint scheme for a military theme And was thinking about adding spray rails to help with props hitting water. Not having it yet is there anything to lighten to help with high wingloading?
