Dornier Wal :

Easy to build scale balsa flyingboat. The templates plan is attached as pdf file. The builder will have to get it printed at a local or online printshop. The idea is that the builder uses this thread as a build guide.

Link to all photo's : Gallery

The model is build using mostly 1.5mm en 3mm Balsa (1/16'' and 1/8''). The build should be a nice mix between a plan and a scracht build with some things needed to be decided by the builder him or her self. These are things like the cowlings , cockpit , and location of the servo's e.d. Offcourse you can use this prototype thread as a guide.

Setup : 2x Park 450 890kv spinning 9x7 three blade props. 2x18A esc and a 3s3300mAh Lipo. Ailerons 13g micro servo metal gear , Rudder and elevator Micro servo 22g.

This time i wanted to do an amphian. I thought a Goose might be a good subject so i started to make the 3d model for it , when this was done i surprised Gary with it and his response was very nice. He imediatly got excited so the next project subject was decided.
I got inspired by the psm Albatross building method and i was looking to do a simulair construction method. . . . . it should be fun to build it without plans.

In Oktober 2014 the model had its succelsfull maiden and i finally could show it here on Rcg , i had been silent about it till that day

Here is a link to the thread :

After my empire flyingboat i started a new design. This time the Dornier Do24K was the subject. I did an extensive research and made a very true to scale 3d model. Rcg member Parkcityskier has build the 1st prototype. Sadly the model came out a bit to heavy. Currently i am working on a re-design wich both Jim and i shall build.

Here is a link to the original design thread :
