Did your Beaver come with the tow hook? Even if you don't tow gliders , fun to pull a streamer or banner.

Yes, I have the tow hook. I'd likely try a banner first before a glider to see how the Beaver reacts to the extra drag.

You have info on a V2 Beaver? Any improvements? Figures - I just finished repainting and clear coating my newly acquired V1

I am seeing clear windows, a shorter nose, and a more attractive paint scheme. I wonder if the floats will have scale struts. Either way, I am in.

I personally think she looks really nice in red.

I agree. No repaint needed on this one. (Unless I get more than 1)

Interesting the Beaver V2 is being released after V1 was discounted for awhile. The 1400-1500 warbird series has also been discounted for awhile - perhaps a prelude to new versions?

Looks good. I just got a v2 to work up. What are the differences other than paint?

IMHO the v1 has the long turbo nose and this v2 the stubby nose.

A Turbo Beaver has a completely different nose and the v1 looks nothing like that. This new v2 looks to have a more correct geometry for a DHC-2 than the v1. That was one of the main complaints of the v1 was its extended nose.

There was an unboxing on the Ryan Pilot Media Live Stream tonight. The new v2 looks amazing. It appears that they fixed my 3 primary gripes. (needed clear windows, shorter nose, and better paint scheme). I am super stoked and ready to push the buy button ASAP.

This video link should start at the unboxing.

Be great to get a side by side photo of both to show difference. The photo from Bajora is not true. Photo is resized to fit and makes plane look stubby. Like to see difference in the nose length. Color is great!
