Here are a few pictures where I fly just outside of Tampa - I usually fly the Seamaster. A friend flew in on his full size floatplane and we all flew it also. Here is a picture from the air at about 750 feet -

It is a very fast plane called the Semeter (not sure of the exact spelling..). There are quite a few of them in the area, and typical power is a pair of ST 90's !!!!!!

Here you have a thread in Twins forum:
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_2674596/tm.htm

Jaka from Sweden appears to be an expert in Kyosho's Catalina, so You can easily ask him

Some pics of ongoing build are on my website http://teemto.republika.pl but the page is still only in polish language - sorry!

Very Nice Kevin

A true amphibian that with functional retracts that could be launched off water and landed on hard ground all in one flight---Rare indeed, nice.

If you have ever caught the old long running American TV show, Fantasy Island you may find it interesting that the opening shots always included a amphibian landing and arrival at the docks as one of the characters yelled "Da Plane Boss, Da Plane". Numerous arriving characters would proceed to step onto the docks. Amazing all these people in that two place airplane. I beleve this airplane was a Kingfisher with several rows of phoney small windows running aft behind the windshield.

Here's my addition to the party, the only water flyer I have at the moment, the Twinkle...

Does anybody have any pics of a Swoose in flight. It's a nice looking aircraft.

Also if anybody could give me information on the model I'd appreciate it. Flying characteristics, etc


Sorry. I found the pics and some posts on flying. I couldn't delete the entire post.
