Then people would complain about the windows not being clear.

I got the model :)


Hey guys
I did order the plane from lindinger.at in Austria.
It's all wood, and no foam at all. The build quality looks really good, and it is a fast build. Probably a week or so.

I will go for a 4s setup with a 5800mah battery.
I'm not sure, but the wing airfoil could be a Clark Y or something close to that. So its a slow, with alot of lift.

The only thing i can complain about is the spinners in the kit, they are ugly and have a bad finish, so i will probably go with DuBro 53mm.

So I spoke with VQModels today and the current status is the boat is on its way and should be hitting the docks late next week. They we need to wait for customs, so ETA is mid-May. I too ordered mine.

Regin, anyway to share some photos or update?

VQ site says Backorder available. Do yall think it's too late to get in on it? Did it say Pre-Order before? I forgot about this model.

Emailed VQ. We'll see what they say..

Only got an automated response, basically an ad...
Still unclear

CubCrazy, the gentleman I spoke with said that he was holding 6 planes for folks that had contacted him directly. I am not sure if that means he has already sold out of the first shipment or not. If you left a VM they should get back to you. They seem to be pretty responsive.

Pictures of the maiden


Sorry for the waiting. Here are some pictures of my maiden.
VQ Twin otter flies really good. Short take offs and slow landings.
My setup is 4s 5800mah.
Motors 2814. 900kv
10x5 prop (2blade)
At the moment 60 amp esc (had them already)
Hitec servos all around.

About 15-20 min flying time.
I didn't put the bars under the wing to the fuselage.
But i didn't see any flexing wings.

Feel. Free to ask questions, and i will try to answer them in my crappy english

Hey Above, nice pictures. What type of hitech servos did you go with? I want to be sure the ones I have will fit. Also, where are the ESCs located? in the Nacelles?

Hey Reef
Ailerons, flaps: Hitec HS-81. Had to do about 2mm grinding to make them fit. (5minute job)

Elevator: Hitec HS-5485HB
Rudder: Hitec HS-325HB

Yes the esc are located in the nacelles. I had to do some soldering to extend the cables in to the fuselage.

CG was best with 56mm from leading edge.
Did you recieve your model?

I ordered one on 5-24 They sent a note saying the container was at dock and they will be shipping after it passes customs. Sounds like I might get one from the first shipment.

I just pulled the trigger on a Twin Otter and the float set. Worst case scenario is they don't have one for me and I cancel the order. Here's hoping
