HK Durafly Skymule mod
I recently got the HK Durafly skymule and decided to really modify it into a look alike Twin Otter.
The size was perfect for spare parts I had so I'm going for it.
I use a Flyzone Beaver spare wing and cut out the trailling edge to have the Flaps and ailerons .
I ordered Catalina PBY cowls from http://parkflyerplastics.com/cart/in...roducts_id=634
They are a perfect fit and look good.
I also ordered the Skymule plastic nose cone http://parkflyerplastics.com/cart/in...roducts_id=700
Also using MAS 10 x 7 x 3 props with rubber spinners that I had from other models.
I will also use the Lights from the Flyzone Beaver and others for strobe beacons.
Since I will have it on floats I will use the E-Flite 32.4 inch floats.
So for now the mod is going well.
I will paint it to look similar to this Canadian Twin Otter

Float work continues.
I took a set of the Flyzone Beaver floats and cut out the base for the struts and blended them in the new floats.
I also added a 6 ich long plywood reinforcement plate to prevent the float from braking in half.

Tail controls are done and working very well.
I use the nose gear servo that is metal gear for the rudder and installed a HS82MG servo for the elevator.
I also ordered turbo prop nacelles from parkflyerplastic in case I decide to convert into a turbo prop twin.

Float progress coming around good.
I did use the Flyzone Beavers Struts but in different positions and had to cut a couple to adjust the hight.
