Is your question about weather is should operate on ground or air frequency? What is your problem? Why does the AMA need to be involved with this version of an aircraft that flies off both the water and land? Do we need to make a rule? Give me some positive response or admit you are trolling.[sm=sleeping.gif]

I WANT ONE!!! anyone have more info on those? I've got a small pond by my place that I've contemplated what to do. I used to have an airboat with an irvine .53, WAAAY too fast for this pond, and I really don't want a true float plane.

Love the vertical aileron rolls, SWEET!

My question would be more of how I could get away with sneaking one into a APBA sanctioned race as a modified hydro.

IMO, no big deal, its just a fun type of float plane.

LOTS of controversy on that craft if you read through the hundreds of posts. basically someone releases the video and dimensions, and says kits are on the way sometime in the future. The tinkerers whip up plans in a couple days that basically emulate the plane, and chaos ensues. (apparently kits and ready made planes are already available on ebay-germany)
