Nice job on the video and maiden! Did Simco use much flaps for landing? Brave man for flying a maiden on what looked like a breezy day!

It was a touch breezy and there are trees at both ends of the field. Bob did a good job flying.

Great job, looked sweet in the air.And that pilot of yours, looked as scared as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
Congrats, glad I saw the maiden! Itis beautiful.

Hi Gene; Fantastic job on the Twin Otter build, any design can only fly as good as the build, and your construction is first class. Hope your efforts will prompt others to build all types of planes from scratch. The best and most rewarding part of modeling in my opinion is constructing planes from scratch and your plane shows how all the hard work is worth the effort. Good luck on the B25 look forward to seeing it's progress cheers John

thanks john
there is a lot to be said about building and watching your own creation fly. i too enjoy building as much as flying..maybe thats why i was just as nervous as SIMCO flying the maiden.
once your caribou is done i bet that will be the next SIMCO build......looking fwd to that one.

cheers
gene

Congrats again on the build and flight. One of the best threads I have seen on RCU.

Viking is building full scale Twin Otters in a matter of a couple of weeks. Lots of demand for this fantastic aircraft. Go Canada!
