Depron Seadart easy build waterplane parkflyer ***PLANS***

I posted this in the Pusher Prop Jet forum, but thought it might appeal to a wider audience.

Plans and build log here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1154758

A short kit of this plane is available: http://www.balsabuddies.com/cutouts/bbshop.htm

It's Misirlou, by Dale, Dick & His Del-Tones. The intro to Pulp Fiction.

Very nice performing plane and excelent flying. And I thought I was done with pusher jets. But a pusher jet on water, thats cool! Now I have to do a water one. I signed on to the original thread.

This is a nifty prop jet. I'd like to do one come summer time.

Thanks for all the compliments.

Altocirrus is right, the song is Misirlou, but the version in the video is by the Surfaris I was looking for an old song for an old jet.

We are just starting to talk about doing kits.

plans are here. If you put ***PLANS*** in the title, you just as well might put a direct link to them in the thread...
Nice plane by the way, looks like a good alternative for the Polaris.

Still working on mine. Trying to make the air intakes more rounded and sleeker to the tail but this is proving more difficult than I thought. Oh well, I'll keep trying.
