Hi, 356Jim
Yes, that was Bob. He always manages to get my most brilliant moves on video, usually crashing.

Another sweet looking plane Ken, but those don't look like Tri-Turbo props. Did you taper them down or is there a new T-T prop or is it just me?

Hello Todd,

You are right, they are not Tri-Turbo props. However, they are "unobtanium" and the next best thing is the Tri-Turbo.

Good job Ken I got your Triton Flying boat and it flies great cept the power of the motor seems to be a wee short on power it's the Black motor suggested by Bob. It flies slow but don't think it'll take off the water. May need to get another type of motor. Will you get the islander kitted also? I would love to try it out(betta test it for you)

Please furnish kits. Now we need the EDF model of the Islander and the Defender version. Maybe the Trislander model as well. I wish!
Very cool and thanks for posting.

his 2 main wheels are very close to the cg so with a little power and up elevator, the nose lifts and the rudder can turn it easily.
