Well I've started to cut out parts for the Seadart. I'm thinking of trying some modifications, mostly cosmetic, but not sure if I'm a good enough builder for that, but I shall try anyway.

Marcel,

Sorry this took so long. Here are your original plans cropped and tiled for Letter and A4.

Sorry for the late reply, I was offline for a few days. I'd love to see how your Seadart turns out

Fantastic build and video. One of the most creative scratch builds to date.
I will be building one soon. Didn't see it in the post but, how many sheets of depron are needed and what size?

Very nice water flying Marcel! I need to do one of these, but I would be flying from grass (not much water here in the desert ).

Darrin,

Build is with 6mm depron. Probably safe to get two full sheets of 39X27.5. It should be available at some of the LHS' around town.

Very nice video and flying. You like to fly like I do, up close and personal Looks like it has great water handling, that's a great homage to one of my favorite planes. Good Job.

Thanks for the kind words. I think it would need a bit more than one sheet, like Pat said.

Thanks Pat. We don't have many water sites nearby either, but at least I get to do some water flying once or twice a year on holiday.

Thanks very much Frank. The water handling is quite easy, especially once it is riding on the ski.

Great water video!!

Any chance of allowing Birdofplay to cut the foam bits from your plans as with the BD-5? If he's willing that is....

Well better late than never.

I missed this due to the 3 week trip and some how just never hit the radar after I got back.

I'm including a parts arrangement for 6mm depron as we get it in the USA.
39" x 13" white depron std size.

Pat you can TILE that one too if you want !

Again this looks like another winner as it captures the intent and philosophy
of Foamy Park model flying.
And as stated earlier I love the Grass or water capability.

Sorry, but I took some liberty just to get it all to fit.
The wing is in 3 pcs. But on break is on the spar line and the other was
necessary to get things to fit.

It might be summer in South Africa but it's a miserable winter in N America.

Well, that all depends on where you live.

This past weekend we had sunny, calm and 70F!

Snow? What's that?

Rain? We had less than 4" for all of 2009.
