Looks great! Hopefully she flys as good as she looks! Like the smaller scale too! What will your proposed power system be? Keep us updated on your progress!

Hi! The Icon A5 is just what I was looking for. But I could not download the plans. There are always empty files. Does anyone have the current version of these plans available?

Plans on First Post!


Hello All,

Thanks for the 'Heads Up'! I didn't realize my website was having technical issues! I'll get it fixed... but in the meantime, plans and decals are in the first post of this thread (where they belong). Thanks again!
Happy Building and flying!

He swims well without them. Just the boat itself out with large displacement, the plane itself and lightweight (870 g).

Way back when the model was in its early stages, I thought of adding them too. The "tipping" only occurs at low speeds on the water - it is also due to the torque of the motor. Once she gets up to speed on the water, the plane needs to be able to tip a bit to maneuver - kind of like a jet ski. She's actually a lot of fun on the water or wet grass. Wingtip floats may improve slow speed handling but I think they would be a big problem at speed. Also, the full scale Icon a5 does not have wing tip floats!

Hi everyone!
All the same, I decided to rework the Redan. The plane began to come off smoothly from the water and land on the water, although the latter need more practice ...
