Picture of this winters two projects. One is an own design to test a different hull, the other is modified Laker. I do hope I have them ready to fly when the ice and snow is gone.

Beautiful!


Looks like a challenging design exercise and build, Bart.
How big are you planning it to be?

Bart you've definitely caught the attention of all the flying boat fanatics out there myself included. Next up a Mars? Really? Watching closely and keep up great work!

What a talented man you are. I don't think I belong in this group.
I only build arfs and fly them. Nitro and electric.

The skill exhibited by builders here is spellbinding. Oh well, it gives us more clumsy folks something toward which to aspire. Here is my first effort, the GP .40 ARF on floats:

Not more clumsy, just less experience. Like amything else, the more planes you build, the better and faster you build them.
Now days, most people in R/C start with an ARF. Having time to build seems to be harder and harder to come up with.
I built and flew control line planes when I was young, but never got into R/C. Finally started in R/C with a .60 size Tower Hobbies trainer ARF. I was training with the Tower plane and building a Cub at the same time. Hadn't built a kit in 40 years but it all came right back to me.
The ARF guys would all do well if they build a kit. It teaches them the techniques they will need to repair the ARFs they like to fly.
I have several planes in my hanger that are whet I call rescues. They are ARF planes that were crashed and the owner had no desire to even try to repair it. I got them got nothing, or next to nothing and turned them into great flying planes.
We all started out someplace. Most guys now days start with an ARF but quite a few still make the effort to build at least one plane from a kit.
Don't sell yourself short because your plane is not from a kit. You are flying and that's what is important.

I Agree , everyone does this hobby on its own level , i started with hand launch gliders years ago and i also had many arf planes.
