Dynam PBY Catalina Owners Thread.


It was asked if anyone owns the new PBY from Dynam. I figured we might as well have a thread for us that will have one in hand soon so we can share our experiences. So if you have one in hand, sound off here and keep those of us waiting salivating with pictures.

Orion

Here are the specs.

Dynam have produced something unique this time, the PBY Catalina seaplane. Months of flight testing and design yield an aircraft that is super stable and capable of maintaining flight at super slow speeds that allow novice to master flight mechanics with ease.
High quality scale detail and a nice large 1.4m winspan make this an attention grabbing model. And pleny of power is provided by the twin 1100KV motors.

Made from a high strength EPO-foam for added durability. Powered by a high powered 850KV electric brushless motor and a 11.1v li-poly battery pack that provide up to 10 minutes flight between for each charge.
Makes a great gift since almost everything needed to fly comes in one box.

Specs:
Wingspan:1470mm(58in)
Overall Length:940mm(37in)
Wing loading:44g/dm2
Flying weight:1300g(45.9oz)
Servo:9g X 4
ESC:30AX2
Motor:KV1100 Brushless Outrunner x 2

Requires:
Battery:11.1v 2200mAh 20C Li-Po
4ch Radio Gear

Current release was schedualed for last Saturday from Global Hobby Store. The larger pictures are from Nitro Planes and Grayson Hobby said the end of July before they have them in hand.

That's funny, I just got my Seawind air worthy last week and took a friend out float flying the for his first time.

I really enjoyed my Seawind, but we moved from the lake into town and she was a hassle to move around. Technically I still have her the guy that bought it is only 1/3 through his "easy pay plan"

I pm'd rRorrock about availability and the other thread.
Hopefully we can just get one thread going and not three.

Well lets hope this will be the one rather than some random named questioned thread or sharing it with another plane.

Yes of course. I plane for retracts and retractable floats. I just have to get a couple of these in.

I've got a lake screaming for some Catalina waves!

I must get this one! too bad it's delayed. I'd want the retractable tip floats only.
-no amphibian for me!

At least I still have my little Robbe SeaBee to scratch my seaplane itch! Great little performer off the water.
