    The Polaris XL from www.modelaero.com. Less than 100 for a foam kit that is very repairable. Motor, battery and servos from HobbyKing for less than 50. If you want ready to fly, the Seawind EP from Tower Hobbies, kit is 109, receiver ready is like 199 but discounts are available.

    The cheapest way to get a float plane is to put a set of floats on a plane you already have. If you are looking for a low cost seaplane, the Neptune both 49 inch and 60 inch are available now for 69.00 and 79.00 plus shipping from Value Hobby.

    You can get a 46 to 52 Asp engine from Hobbypartz.com for aroun 60 - 62 dollars.

    That combination will probably be the cheapest fuel set up you will find new.
