    Canadair CL-415 electric

    Hello Friends of Canadair CL-415
    Is someone building or flying actually a CL-415 80' wing span, powered by outrunners? I would be interested in some pictures and data about auw, motor size and propeller size.

    Many thanks and Greetings from switzerland
    Dan
