    RE: Hydro-Foam by Michael Connally

    Bad thing is... there's no real date set as to when they'll be available... ton's of threads on this cool creation, but MC won't give any estimates as to when they'll be available.

    He should get with GP or Horizon to get this thing made.... they'd jump at this design.

    RE: Hydro-Foam by Michael Connally

    I am sure there are several companies now working to "clone" this design and you will likely see something being sold quite soon. I think they are all scrambling. If he wanted to sell them he should have probably had them ready to go before "unveiling" this very cool idea. The copycats are in motion I can tell you.

    Greg, can't wait to read your review of the Hydro Foam (I've liked your other reviews). I may wait for the "official" kit from Michael Connally, but I'm still interested to see how this kit performs.

    RE: Hydro-Foam by Michael Connally

    Spoken like a true Northerner!

    Actually, I was also thinking that if it can scrape along pavement, it should work over firm snow. This means I can fly it all year long.

    I can see modifications coming as well like adding some horizontal side fins for beginners. I expect that it may be a bit twitchy in the air. The pilot in the video likely has good 3D skills.

    RE: Hydro-Foam by Michael Connally

    twitchy or not i'll just have to refine my technique, inded snow should not be an obstacle for this vehicle, it weighs 14oz rtf and has a lot of pontoon surface, i'm confident it will glide over 3% powder if you should ever encounter such elusive conditions.

    For a guy like me learning th fly this thing over 6 feet of powder snow is just the ticket to avoid the repair bench... I MUST HAVE ONE!!! i won't sleep right until i have flown it.

    Now for a full scale version capable of doing this for real, preferably able to fit on a public road Immagine, escape from your crowded city by driving one of these to a large parking lot or field and take off! then land in a lake, or a road, or a field... whatever floats your hydroplane!

    Who else has bought one of the Miss Hangar One kits? Are the kits good quality? Do they have to covered at all, or just painted?

    I emailed Red about his kit availability, along with the Purple **** motor. Hopefully I'll hear back soon, though I'm sure there is a huge backlog of orders for these kits and the motors...At least they are better than that junk that is popping up on eBay lately, worth waiting for I'm sure...

    RE: Hydro-Foam by Michael Connally

    I`m nearly done with my "Lobster", a Norwegian designed flying hydro. Hope to testfly tomorrow. A friend of mine have flown his several times, works good! Good kit, depron and easy to assemble. Double sets of rudders and elevons, and it flies well on an AXI2204/54. Mine will get a MotorMax300XT. I just have to search all my boxes on the hobbyroom to find servoes...
