Hi!
Here is some pictures of my Kyosho PBY Catalina powered by two OS .15 LA engines.
Have flown it for 5 years now. Very easy to fly...flies like a sailplane, slow and gentle.

Regards!

Here is my Sea Monster. The one picture was supposed to be a little closer in but apparently my ability to water taxi while looking through the camera lens leave a bit to be desired.

A couple pics of my 8 ft. wing span Beaver I built from Unionville plans. Powered by a 1.20 four stroke with on-board glow. The color scheme is from a Beaver I rode in a couple years ago in Anchorage Alaska.

Sea Monster pictures-I got them. Here's mine powered by a Magnum .70 4-stroke, 12-8 prop.

I did put extra color on top of the wing. I don't see white planes very well, especially if there are clouds, and we have clouds in Florida.

The Mariner and Seamonster have a similar hull in that they both have a v shape bow and while that adds to stability while in the water, I think it produces extra drag. I for one did not like how long it took to get the Mariner off water. The Seamaster on the other hand has a flat bottom and gets up on plane fast, breaks the surface and a slight up will lift it off. Very happy picture. The Mariner took a lot of up elevator while the Seamastr jut a touch, hold it and lift off. Both the Seamaster and Monster have the same wing. Shorter by a couple of inches than the Mariner, but has a wider cord which I think gives it better lift.

If you get the Seamaster, the best price is at Towerhobbies, $200. HobbyPeople have the Monster for $179. just got one a few weeks ago but is still in the box.

I dont know your flying skill, but I used to fly many many yrs ago and have not flown for over 5 yrs. I had trouble with the Mariner (while other have not) getting it off the water and having a decent flight was hit-and-miss. The Semaster, got it up the first time, did several touch-n-gos and had a satisfying day.

How about a picture of the PBY all screwed together, or should I cut and paste?

Here's an original design of mine, I call the Talon. First had an RJL .61 in it...now it has a ST90...too much really for it, but it's fun. Floats are my own cut out of foam and balsa sheeted...flat bottom too, makes it fun to 'skip' across the water. [8D]
I now live near Philadelphia and do very little float flying, and used to do a lot more float flying back in BC Canada...I really miss it! The great people and the lakes.

Here is my Twin Pondmaster, it was my first scratch build. I crashed it before I ever got it on water. This pic is after the rebuild. I swore it was going to fly off water the second time, and it's a blast.
The other is my first attempt at float flying. It is a GWS E-Starter that I scratch built floats for. It didn't do very well with the stock 380 power system, could barely get it off the water once. After I installed a brushless motor with LyPolys, WOW, she just zooms of the water now! (I'm sad to say, the E-Starter is no longer with me though.[&o]) Looking at getting the GWS Beaver to replace it.

Here are a couple of planes I fly. Both electric. Both Lithium powered.
Aventura Twin - 2 speed 400's - great flyer on water & snow.
Bonnie 20 - Axi 2820/10 - only flown from snow so far.

Pictures of my Sig Rascal 40 ARF on floats. O.S. 52 four stroke ... awesome airplane.

Also in the picture is my brother's Eagle II. This airplane has been around a long time and has done everything but drop skydivers.

Enjoy!

My (borrowed) Howard Metcalfe Moonraker on old Tyro Major floats. If anyone knows how to convert VHS to media player I can post video of this and more from the loch insh splash-in a couple years ago.

Oh, almost forgot, my TT Giles, recovered and floated for a TV event that never made TV.

My scratch built Grumman Ag-cat. 42" or so and 3.5 lbs on floats. A magnum .30fs pulls it nicely. I may recover it like the ag-cats on floats in the movie "The Phantom".
