RE: Another aqua-star build question
I have a couple of them. One is painted, and the other is covered with film. It doesn't matter as long as everything is sealed. My electric was very heavy (before brushless came) and a Norvel .049 wouldn't leave the water, so I put in a Norvel .06, and it wouldn't idle properly. I am thinking about brushless too. I think more floatation is needed on the front of the plane. They both flew ok, but wouldn't take off water. They did some weird torque rolls from a hand launch at full throttle too. That required glue. I am not really happy with them and don't have a great place to fly them any more.
