I just came across it on their website...

mmm...Sooo Tempting!!

I have 2 electric seaplanes (.40 and .60 size) already and I love flying them.

$239.95 not bad..

KMP has a nice CL415 too but it's $379..

It took me 2 days but I finally convinced myself and ordered one today. Will wait to get plane assembled to figure out power system, possibly 2x power 46's on 4S or 2 Himax's on 6S, depends how much nose weight I'll need. Should be a "cheap" project for me since I have motors escs servos and batteries sitting here unused. First thing I'
ll do is see the max diameter prop I can run, then work backwards from there. Probably going to run 3-blades.

Nitroplanes has an outrunner called the Monster Power 46 which looks good for this application. It has the same KV as the Eflite 46. Just costs much less.

I have this motor in one of my planes and it is a great bang for the buck! Very well made.

Rudderman, You have the mraerodesign, laser cut Cl-415?!! I've looked at that kit and a build thread. It's an absolutely, beautiful kit, it's expensive and it will make one, awesome airplane! I hope you can find and make the time to build it. As much as I like to build I'm slowly coming to the realization that I just don't have the kind of time I need to build, hence my interest in this CL-415 ARF. I just can't believe it's $240!! Decisions, decisions!

Freddy,

Yep. Thats my problem too! But that new ARF is soooooo tempting, I just might have to jump on it and build the MR at a later date. How can you beat that price?

There's a build thread on the MR?

Man.....

For what I paid for the MR kit with plans and fiberglass parts, I could of bought three of these ARF's....D'oH!

Seriously though. It is truly a beautiful laser cut kit with nice fiberglass parts. And the optional functional retracts are to die for. I didn't opt for them at the time of purchase.

But the ARF wasn't available five years ago and I can be a slooooow builder sometimes.

Anyone interested in a CL-415 KIT? I'll take payments...seriously!
