The AT-6 feels quite handy to fly and it has a good visible colour scheme

I use Clearview also. Here is one that seems pretty good. You may have this model already but I will attach anyway. If not, let me know what you think.
Just right click on the Zip icon and choose "save target as" then you can download the zipped file to your hard drive.

I went from wheels to floats and don;t recall having to do any trim to the elevator.


Now I DO have lots of trouble with my ailerons and rudder. I'm the one who thought I had a warped wing because of the aileron trim required. I thought I would try to warp the wings back without using heat , and was able to remove 50 clicks of aileron trim (in the right direction)

My beaver still flies terribly and has to be my worst flying plane. I pulled a real boner with it too when flying down-wind and in poor visibility. I lost orientation big time during a left turn around. I don't even know what happened or how I recovered , but it sure scared me. I really thought it was going to fly away and I had such a hard time seeing it. I'm hoping it was just high winds and high turbulence that day because it flew so bad.

My next flight will be with my first radio mix ever of a very slight amount of rudder mixed in with aileron. I hope that will get rid of some of the bad habit. If not this plane is going on the bench for an expert to diag for me. What surprised me the most was how this plane disappears into a thin sliver during it's bad left turnarounds.

I need practise practise.

gulio, sorry to hear your troubles. High wind and poor visibility would give most of us trouble. Before using mixes, you have to go out on a perfect calm day and get it all set up (trimmed). My surfaces are very close to centered by eye. I can fly mine in wind but I don't enjoy it. When its calm, it flies awesome. Get a perfect day before you try anything drastic.

Paul, I think your about due for a dose of good flying weather! However, you are pretty darn creative with photo shop! Looks good ~ Robin

Still waiting for news... If I don't find something healthier to eat, I'm going to be to fat to fly by the time the Beaver gets here!

Yes I'm due for shure.
This evening I had just a small window to fly and took out my Heli on floats in the soft snow.
BEcause of the very mild temp today the snow was way too soft for the Beaver on skis .
I'm itching to fly the Beaver again

Thanks everyone for the tips, and no offense taken..

Paul, I love the picture!!

I'll look over the flying surfaces when I get a chance and see if anything looks off, and also check the engine mount/thrust line.

Yes the motor mount trust line could also do it.
I do have a strange feeling that the ailerons are up slightly giving the wing a spoiler effect.

I just checked the ailerons and they are even with the wingtips. Not too concerned at this point, next time I fly it I'll see how it does.

Hi Robin:

I thought the "another version" of the EDO logo looked more original than some I've seen .. one for example has the fairly modern winged fish with a Kenmore Air Beaver super-imposed on it .. obviously, that one isn't very original. The one you scanned was black and white from a manual of some sort. I have no idea what the colors may have been at that time, IF there were any, but most of the ones I've seen were blue. I did my best at re-creating that logo, and it's mosty blue. I can re-do the colors to anyones choice pretty easily now that the artwork is done . Thought the red, white and blue were appropriate, as the floats were made here in New York, USA.
