Here's mine. 6' wingspan scratch built from Unionville Hobbies kit plan. Covered in Seconite and painted with latex. On Unionville floats. Powered by OS 52 FS. Modified wing slightly to NACA 4416 airfoil. Flies well, will do loops, rolls, stall turns, spins (real Beavers don't do that!!) quite well. Also flown on wheels.

Very nice guys! Nothing like watching a Beaver of final coming in so slow you're sure it will fall out of the sky. It amazes me on each landing.

P.S. Note: Cowling is custom fiberglass from eps plug turned on a lathe. Stock cowling is ugly and heavy, so I made my own. I can't help but tinker with ARF's.

Well, thats one way to take off with floats and no water. I'd like to see him try and land it back on the trailer.

(I once watched a guy flying a Cub at the Manitowac airshow in Wisconsin take off and "land" from the top of a Winibago camper rollin' down the runway.

Quite a stunt to watch)
