i always loved the idea of a seaplane, but most of them were either rather complicated, or looked like a recipe for drowning my radio gear (and the motor, and the lipo)

enter thomas B., prolific designer with a thing for depron and seaplanes; this is his great little pseudo-schneider entry, the jupiter shrimp (links to plans in that thread); he's a regular contributor to modell aviator, and makes me wish i was more capable of comprehending german - ah well... google translate to the rescue

to join the fun, you'll need :
(minimum) 4 channel radio
10-12amp 2-3s esc
3x 5gm (or so) servos
a swag of 6mm and some 3mm depron
a 460 mah or so 3s lipo
a small brushless outrunner to turn a 6-7" prop

the design is very basic; my build complicated it a bit; not necessary for a very fine flyer, but it's in my nature to take the road less travelled and the education gained towards my next depron build is its own reward

anyway, some pictures to grab your interest, and you can follow this link to the rest of the photos of my build

This plane is the 3D Hobby Shop 75" Edge 540. I'm partial to white planes so I took the orange color scheme and stripped the covering off right out of the box and recovered it in UltraCote White.

The plane has a new DLE-35RA motor and Hitec 7954 servos all around. The elevator and rudder servos are equipped with SWB arms. It has a Tech Aero cutoff switch and an Emcotec switch from Esprit Model in Florida. It also has a Xoar 21x8 prop inside a Tru-Turn 3.5" Spinner.

The motor cowling and canopy were painted in a local auto body shop and the paint looks like a car finish.

This plane has not been flown as of June 23, 2018

Here is some sample footage from the new Foxeer Monster Pro. Very impressive for a $25 camera.

The video was recorded from my Topsky goggles with an Eachine Pro58 module.

I'll have a full review of the camera coming soon.
