Default 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

Hi Daniel,
Here's a couple of pics of my CL-215 that took Best Scratch Build at the Seaplane Classic in Lake Havasu in November:


It was built from Steve Gray plans. Saito .56 four strokes. 76" wingspan. Weighs 10.2 pounds dry.


Edit: Sorry, didn't realize this was an electric conversion forum. I got here through a search.
