Default Flying airboat

Anyone remember, about 15 or so years ago, an airboat made from Depron that could also fly? I had one back then, and it was a real blast, and I wanted to see if they are still available, but I don't recall who made it.

It seems like it was about 24" long, and electric powered. It was a hoot on the water, could skate across grass easily and take off. It was quite aerobatic too.
