not that i wouldn't buy one in a heartbeat but I dont think an icon would work well in micro format - too much water tension on that hull I would assume.

I dunno, I'm still waiting for my UM Phoenix 7 pattern ship. Point being, a lot of us have a dream UM model that only we really want, but nobody else shares any enthusiasm for. We're all "Me me me, make what I want!" then poo-poo the actual planes that PZ releases. An Icon would be sweet, but I'm thinking it would have to be the slightly larger and brushless to work well, so in The Beast or Sbach UMX size.

WOW an A-5 would be awesome!!

I'm going to try to scratch build one soon though. It should be a lot easier since it is a pusher.

Yes it would definitely have to be a brushless UMX model I think for it to really take off both literally and in the sales department. Although some people have made the Champ work with floats, but it has a very low wing loading.

I have been hinting at a UMX Icon A5 in a few other places on RCG as well, so I hope Horizon hears us! All they have to do is scale down the molds from the big one right?

I'd love any sort of 4 channel 2s brushless UMX that is amphibious. The Icon A5 would certainly be sweet! I'd also like a Champ or Super Cub... With nav lights would be even sweeter!!

Anything in this category would be welcomed by me!!

micro float planes

I've flown my champ with floats, and I think it would be great if someone would make floats for micro's. I also made skiis for my champ out of a coke bottle and they work fine.
