Default Avios Albatross HU-16 Flying Boat 1620mm (63.7") PNF

Never owned a flying boat. Just a handful of parts in the box so very quick to assemble. Electronics all installed, servos already hooked up to control surfaces and decals applied. Just drop in RX, setup your radio and ready to go.

First flight off grass

First flight off water
Coming soon !

Default Albatross

use the flaps for takeoff and landings., CG is critical, don't expect it to FLOAT on landings., limit your control throws and use 30 to 40% expo.
Then it will fly nicely

Good news! I did receive myAlbatross went together nicely, used th 3000ma pack and set the throws as recommended (This is important) first flights were off wet grass early in the morning. Flew well, I did cut down the throws to the low rates, did some stalls withe the cg at the 80mm location.
to sum it us GREAT AIRPLANE!!
other guys I talked to at Joe Nall complained but I don't think it was set up properly.
