Gee, I was cruising through some old copies of The Aeroplane in which they covered the 521; now THERE is a project! Look at that hull!

Not enough money to try it myself... grrrr...

Two years ago, I build a Laté 631 that's still in fly condition (last fly in septembre).

The main problem with such project is engines reliability. On my 631, I use 6 gws 350 but many flight ended with only 5 working engines. If I had to build a new one I will choose cheap chinese brushless.

The Late 531 will also be a great project.

Bye

some pictures of those pre-war french hydroplanes.
A lot of datas can be found on the latécoère website : http://www.latecoere.com/expos/plan.htm and
http://www.airfrancelasaga.com/en (particularly the 30's period), the contents are in english.

Also the air france museum has a lot of informations about all those machines.
