Hey Noel,

I think I have seen a few UK members here with the Beaver but not sure where they bought the thing. Most places are out of stock due to Christmas. Give it a few weeks and I bet you will see them coming back into stock. I got mine for Christmas and it is all together but the weather has been to bad here to fly so far!!!!!

I believe it is called the Robbe Beaver in Europe. Same model in different trip.

Just came back from a nice flying session, the new snow was a bit harden so it was just perfect.
The sky was hazy but nice for the lights and no wind too.
Going back out but this time at the local club were I was just invited , should be fun.

Came back from the local club , got a couple airborn shots but it was snowing a bit so its not too clear.

Yeh you can get it two versions over here. Robbe and ST Model. Not sure where to find the Robbe one but any hobby shop that stocks Ripmax gear should be good for ST Model. I got mine from Hobbystore. They come rx ready but you need to order the floats separately if you want them.

You need to play around with the Flap Control, I remember having same situation the first time I used it on another plane. Forgot exactly but it may have to do with the slider wanting to be centered. I use mine with slider all the way back is no flap middle is half and foreword is full flap. You can see this on the graph and adjust accordingly. Mine shows Flap: +100%/+100% and elevator +28%. Sorry I couldn't be more clear, thats all thats coming out of my pea brain right now.

Just wanted to add some links for you now I had a bit of time.
HobbyStores have them in stock and the floats at 15.99
Kings Lynn Model Shop has the plane but I can't seem to see the floats on there.
Both places are listing them at 124.90 with free postage.

I've often wished the makers of these nice foam planes would sell undecorated versions, like model railroad makers do. It would make custom painting or covering a plane so much easier for modelers who want custom models.

I'm in the process of covering my new Beaver with vinyl film to represent a plane flown by the CAP in Alaska. I removed all the decals and some paint. The bottom of the fuse I coated with white primer so the black would not show through the white vinyl.
