Parkzone 52.5" Icon A5

What I wanted was a foam flying boat that would need minimal modifications to get in the air. I looked at some of the Cessna 182s, the Sea Wind, and some of the Guanli models but all of them seemed like they would need a fair amount of work to get them into the air. The goal was to have a plane that I was not very invested in, so that I could fly off of water with little to no pucker factor.

So far the Icon has been great. I've only got four flights on it at this time, but so far it meets my expectations. I am having the wag/dutch roll issue that everyone else seems to be having but it's not the end of the world, it still flies fine. I hope to spend a lot of time at the lake this summer since I won't have to worry about getting my two favorite wooden planes wet (Toledo and Taylorcraft).

The specs on the Icon:

AUW: 44oz

Static test: 220 watts
