Lovely photos and it's looking really good.

Gorgeous airplane!

The challenge is going to be avoiding flex in flight and handling high impact water touchdowns, so requiring stiffening tubes/rods - more weight.
Then waterproofing the hull will add more weight too. That coupled with the relatively slender wings may result in a somewhat high stall speed.

This will definitely be a treat to see in the air!

Hey nuteman .. good to see you mate and (as always) your comments and advice always welcome .. where would you say the CG is ? I am assuming around the step on the hull (fuselage) .. also what are your thoughts on the motor upthrust / downthrust ?

Anyone game to predict the C of G ?

Would this be classed as a biplane or is the rear wing classed as the horizontal stabilizer ?

Fuselage almost finished, rudder to go on, sand then start the wings.

Thanks raipe, hope she flies as good as she looks ... always a real worry when its something like this that "you just don't know if or how she will fly"

Cheers Kev, hope you arrived home safely .. lots of time on your hands now mate to build airplanes

That looks fantastic! I knew you'd have it almost finished before I even put the lid on the Skycar. Slow down man!

Have you been in touch with the manufacturers of the full scale Flynano? They might be so impressed they send you one over
