    de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    any thoughts on this?? i am looking for a winter project to build. flying it probably won't happen anytime soon ... however, i am in the market for a kit that i can eventually use on water.

    i have come across plans for sale on the - de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver - however, before diving in , i would like to see if it is worth the time and investment. if it is, great!!! if not, are there any recommendations?? i am open to both float and sea planes.

    thanks ...

    de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    Bonjour,
    If you want a big and very scale Beaver, my plan will be finished soon after Christmass. Take a look at my website: www.mraerodesign.com

    de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    Hello, I just came from your website and was very interested in the Beaver plans set you are making. It looks good and I was wondering if you are going to enclude float plans for it? Also do ypu have a price listed yet for the set? Keep up the good work. I also CAD draw. I use AutoCad ver.14, 98, and 2000. null

    de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    Right after the plan was finish, I'l start to draw float for it. The price will probably the same that the Pilatus PC-6 Porter (60$ US) but i'm not sure. I will start to build my prototyp ASAP to be able to make my fiberglass mold (front and rear cowl, tail cone and wingtip. I probably do the dorsal fin in fiberglass to. Take a look to my website often to see the progress of this project!!

    I am working on a 84" Beaver ARF from RichmanRC. It is just about finished. It looks good for the money. The floats are about half complete. Must have floats. Nick

    Search for "Unionville Hobby" on the website www.GreatHobbies.com (commercial site)

    There doesn't seem to be a website to order directly from Unionville Hobby, but you can find lots of information on their kits on greathobbies, plus vendor information with phone number and address. Unionville has several Beaver kits (they seem to specialize in de Havilland planes).

    DeHavilland Beaver - 6'.40-.46
    DeHavilland Beaver - 8' Radial
    Dehavilland Beaver - 8' Turbo
    Beaver - 12' 1/4 Scale 1.2-1.5

    I especially like the longer nose of the Turbo beaver.

    they also sell floats.

    de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    Hello; The Beaver is a very popular plane hereabouts, I know of 8 in my flying circle. Mostly 72 to 77 inches, but lots of bigger ones, all on floats. We live on the west coast and see the real thing everyday everybody who flys them ;love them. Easy to fly with no unpleasant surprises, most guys put four strokes in them. Lots of fun.

    I've got a full set of dead-nuts scale plans for a 5th scale Beaver with floats. I've already built a prototype if you'd like to see pics of a finished airplane.

    Dennis Hunt makes a great Beaver. Glass fuselage, sheeted foam wings and stab. 100" span. Prototype flew with a Moki 1.8. But that had to be almost 10 years ago. Scale glass floats available too.

    RE: de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    The first part of the cowl are already made. I need to make the air intake section. Tail are designed and I have only the fuselage modification to finish..

    Badfully, I need to make some overtime to my main job and I don't had a lot of time to work on my MR Aerodesign project. I will probably be able to take some holiday in March and I hope to be able to finish the Turbo Beaver at this time....

    Take a look to my Beaver panel !!

    RE: de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    Here are pictures of my DHC-2. I've flown it with wheels only so far and have just finished mocking up new floats for it. It will most likey be a dedicated float plane from now on. Enjoy.

    RE: de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

    currently building the unionville beaver 6ft, need some low profile servos as the wing is rather thin, plan on powering with a tiger 60, have had to modify the cowling to accommodate the motor and plan on using wheels, floats and skis. The kit is not for first time builders as the instructions are very vague. however enjoying the project the first flight will probably be skis. have added reinforcements to the struts and bigger surfaces for the float attachments. anyone else who has built this kit would like other input.
