RE: Seagull's "Dual Ace"

RE: Seagull's "Dual Ace"

My starport engine is thrusting in towards the fuselage. So this is definitely wrong. My port engine is ok.

I am not having any problems with the wing incidence and the wing bolts seem to...

RE: Seagull's "Dual Ace"

I am in sort of disbelief about the sheard bolts. I am wondering if the guy was trying to pull one over on Horizon. He asked Horizon to replace his DA because of faulty workmanship. He told me ...

RE: Seagull's "Dual Ace"

Wing bolt breakage? I talked to a guy in my LHS the other day as he was picking up a DA. He said he crashed his previous one because one of the wings flew off. He claims the wing bolts sheared. ...

RE: Nitroplanes Seawind

Dale,

It looks like the GP Seawind just can't handle the chop like a Seamaster. Sorry to hear the bad news. Lets see how the Nitro does.

Check out the Nitro Seawind thread. Someone did a side by side comparison. Almost all of the GP's Seawind problems have been addressed with the NitroModels Seawind. Bigger Floats,More...

RE: Nitroplanes Seawind

TooLow,

Could you tells us about the prop clearance. Or pod height comparison. Do you think it can take a larger prop than the GP seawind?

RE: Nitroplanes Seawind

I agree, the Nitro version looks very superior. It looks like the Nitro had a little more testing and refinements done to it. The fact that the wing cord is 3/4" wider is great. And it is a...

RE: Great Planes Seawind

Your picture of the fin does not look like a typical gel coat stress crack. This looks like a flaw or the result of some trama.

RE: Great Planes Seawind

RE: Great Planes Seawind
