Default Aquastar

I was able to test fly my electrified Aquastar at the FARM club seaplane event on Saturday. It was a damp and dreary day but very fly able. The Aquastar did fine.

I'm not much into sea planes but this little piddly "Skippy" is going for ever and ever. Enjoy.

Out of all these great pictures of seaplanes, I didn't see one Schneider racer.

An awesome Schneider Cup resource can be found here: http://schneidercup.com/

I'm sorry...I never got a notification about your post.
The "Pepsi" plane belongs to a fellow pilot from another club.

I'll ask him what it is and let you know.

Thanks,

Thanks, it sure looks like mine, finished a lot nicer. I got mine with a Supertiger .40 and a radio for $20 many years ago. I ran it up a couple times and had interference problems so it never got in the air yet. It has wheels. Good to know it flies well.

"Skid Kikker"
It's a different model after some improvements, the "skid kikker" allows me to take off even the glass like water in 5-10 meters, and CF frame reinforcement makes inputs lot more precise.
