MR Aerodesign De Havilland Beaver
 
I'm looking at building the subject kit. Has anybody built this kit and can provide some input?

Dick Pettit built one as an article in RC Report Magazine, and paired it with a Saito gasoline engine. If you could find a reprint of that article, it would be a wealth of information.

That kit looks awesome. Epic building manual!

I was going to offer a pdf of the magazine but unfortunately it is supposed to be Jan 2009 and my pdf's start at March!!

Real kit builders here(NOT me) built the smaller scale water bomber and both turned out a bit heavy. Probably overbuilt for the small scale. I don't think that would apply to larger models. Extensive use of laminated ply and balsa and brass tube for hinges/controls.

Here is the article that Dick Pettit did for the plane if anyone is interested.

I really miss that no BS magazine. They told it like it was.

Found the physical mag before I saw the PDF above.
IT turns out it was 25% heavier than advertised just like the smaller scale water bomber.
