Help with kit/plane identification

I found this at the LHS, I figured it was worth 20 bucks and it looks like it'll be fun.

No info what so ever other then it's a 40" WS sea plane kit partially built.


Does anyone have any ideas as to what this might be?

Dude...You Rock!

It's has different wings but the fuse is exact. Who ever built it prolly was putting his own spin on it.

The front hatch is not big enough for any battery but I see in some threads the hatch is the full length, this is only half the length.

That's plenty of info to find out more on this plane for sure.

Thanks!

I think the wing is correct, but the outboard, upward angled tip rib was not added (yet?).

It's a different wing for sure...take a look at the pic. Different construction and the wing I have is semi symetrical.

I might just stick a motor on the front and call it a day.

The out of the box Aqua Star is a 3 channel (R-E-M) plane. This one has a modified wing with ailerons. The power pod is missing and it seems the builder had an idea other than the stock method for installing the power train.
