Dynam PBY Catalina

Here's a few pictures of the Dynam PBY Catalina from Nitroplanes. I'm hoping to get the maiden flight in this week. The power is impressive and the quality is nice. I color matched the plastic mount parts and repainted the prop tips. I can't wait to fly it!

Nice...let me know how the Dynam flies. I have the Guan Li PBY with E-flite 370 motors in it and 30amp esc's with a 2200mah Lipo. I stiffened the tip floats with tri-stock and painted them silver. It flies nice and easy but takeoffs can be tricky with any ripples in the water as the props tend to dig in a little. I just fly her on calm days now. The Dynam PBY looks like the real deal. Good luck!!!

warwick-Thanks for the feedback. Yeah....this Dynam Catalina is impressive in size and price. I love the color scheme of the Guanli Cat, so I may repaint the Dynam later on. I'll let you know how it flies!

If anyone reports on it, wondering how much chop it can handle.

This is the new 58" Dynam Catalina which can be purchased from either Nitroplanes or Grayson Hobby.

I put three flights on the Catalina yesterday. I flew it off a grass field and it performed beautifully. Ample powered and stability. The only issue was a minor split elevator deflection. Basically, the left elevator was deflecting more than the right side, causing a minor roll when I pulled up on the elevator. I'll try to fix the issue tonight. Even with that minor issue, the aircraft is an incredible value and great plane to fly.
