I'll let you know Tue. I'm going a mile up the road to a friends 5 acre pond to fly it along with him and his float equipped slow stick. You can fly your whole pattern over that pond with a cleared area with a big sandbar at one end that makes for perfect approaches. Water is like glass. Did ya know that God vacations in Mississippi? ...ZeeZee/Dave/////Oh I started this thread cause I went out and bought two planes, then the wing and now this..........

The Beave

I have been wanting to add a Beaver to my Hanger (That sounds dirty for some reason) and was looking at the CMP Version at NP which is now down to around $130 for the kit but comes with no motor, servos, etc.. Glad I waited as the new flyzone version looks great. I have two of their planes and I have been impressed with their quality. This one is now on my Christmas list...Look forward to some video on both runway and water landings...

Get the Rx-R Version and you can use any TX/RX combo you want.

Still annoying that GP/Tower does not offer the Beaver in a PnP/RX-R version......you have to buy the RX whether you want it or not. The Beaver is actually a TX-R version.

Can be sold off, of course and then you can use your own TX/RX with a minimal cost penalty.

About the big Pitts....a guy at my club field flies one...looks to be pretty decent. I bet it would do better with a prop upgrade to a two blade APC E prop, plus a better spinner, setup for two blades. This guy has the other big Pitts as well, the Model 12 and the prop does not appear to be a perfect match on either of these models. The stock props can be very hard to find in stock at BH.

While the EPO looks good to start, the foam beads will swell up from exposure to sun/heat under any part of the foam that had a medium to dark color on it, so beware. The white areas usually do pretty good.

sold mine after reading that the AnyLink limits me to a range of 1000'. I fly further out than that regularly. I go vertical with my H9 P-51 further than that. I'd lose it. My front driveway is a 1/3 of a mile.....Dave
