RE: Seamaster .40 with an O.S. .55 AX

RE: Neptune ARF advice on 1st seaplane? Construction tips?

The pods on the Neptune and Seamaster are light and with a 4 stroke will vibrate. The 2 cy. runs smoother. An os 46fx is perfect for this plane. A Saito 72!?. Better beef up the pod. And remember, a...
