The CL-415 is the only aircraft in the world purpose built as a firefighter, it is literally, a waterbomber. This big model Seaplane can be flown either off water or at your favourite grass flying feild, yet despite it's size, this kit can be completed for very little cost.The model is very light, meaning little power is needed to get it "unstuck" and into the air, it also features a water steering paddle, connected to the rudder, for steering the model back to shore. If you are not flying from water, simply un-screw the water steering rudder and hand-launch, the Canadair's excellent manners mean a grass landing is a breeze. The kit features a very comprehensive hardware kit, including servo extension leads, 8x3.8SF props, spinners, glue and tools!Specifications:Construction: Foam/PlyWing Span: 1390mmLength: 968mmDry Weight: 710g4 Channel (aileron, elevator, throttle, rudder)Requires:Your own 4Ch RX/TX2 x 24/2210 1400-1500kv Motors2 x 20A ESC4 x 9g Servo2200mAh 3s Lipoly Battery

Yeah it's a pretty nice looking model for the money. Packed very well, every part wrapped in foam. Though, HK tossed in the motors and esc's loose so that they could bounce around during shipment. smh. I was pleased that the decals are not already applied to the model. This leaves open many other options for a different livery.I have already bought many models of hobby king.
but never experienced sooooo bad quality as in this model.
large color differences, very poor processing, poor matching accuracy.
am extremely disappointed
Ich habe schon viele Modelle von hobby king gekauft.
aber noch nie sooooo schlechte qualität wie bei diesen modell erlebt.
grosse farbunterschiede, sehr schlechte verarbeitung, schlechte passgenauigkeit .
bin extrem enttäuschtFlys nice and can potter about very slowly but be prepared to make up your own motor mounts. The stick mounts are only going to suit a limited amount of motors. The plane looks good but the foam is thin as is the plywood which split when I pressed a battery to it. I laminated the underside for protection when taking off and landing on grass. Differential thrust gives it good ground handling.Excellent kit ... very well packaged and complete , the only thing you will need to fabricate are possibly motor mounts dependant of motors you use ... but that took me 5 mins to make ... and I am no model builder ...... you will also need to extend esc wires if mounting esc's in fus .... which is good idea if flying off water !
plane goes together with no problems great value for the money ... we have several flying at our club, land and take off on grass without problems (and of course water)Just got this Kit and I'm a bit disappointed. The Spinners are trash, same You can see in the video, look at the tab. There is absolutely no use for it and by the way its CCW both. That's a shame for You HK, cause You know already nobody will use it!
I'm missing the glue and the decoys as listed in the user's manual. A very comprehensive hardware kit must be something else. I'm 100pcnt sure it is not like what I found in the box.j'ai cet avion depuis 2 ans!! c'est une merveille en vol!! trs realiste! trs stable .le vent n'a aucune influence sur la stabilit!! les amerissages sont de toute beaut.par contre il faut renforcer la liaison des deux volets de profondeur , car elle est un peu trop souple et fragile ( mon avis!!)This has to be THE bargain of the year. Put in a couple of cheap Turnigy motors, MAS 3-blade c-rotating props, 40A ESCs, leftover 9g servos from other planes and run on 4s. I've flown it a few times now and it's become one of my very favorite planes. It's over-powered but that's the way I like my planes, with lots in reserve. It'll take off in just over 15' or I can run it along the grass for a more scale take off. Lands nice and smooth, too. It's flies brilliantly and is very eye catching in the air. Can do loops and rolls with ease.
The foam is very soft and dents/scratches easily so I used Mod Podge to seal the foam. This seemed to make it more resilient.
Too bad the shipping costs more than the plane but can't do much about that.Reu aprs 4 jours ouvrable avec un trou dans le carton heureusement doubl. On aurait prfrer une pousse EPO plutot que cette mousse de cagette de poissonnier ! Une toile qui saute ! L'aile est vrille, encore une etoile qui saute ! On aurait galement prfr le choix des couleurs (je pense la version jaune) prvoir de fibrer l'avant de la coque au 80g ou de la vnilier car vraiment fragile au marquage. Kit relativement avanc car toutes les gouvernes sont dj fonctionnelles Moteurs prvu bell 1400kv plus hlices tripale 6x4,45.pour l'akkure statique.
Pourquoi ne pas proposer galement en option un systeme d'copage ? Malgr tout, beau petit avion avec une allure sympatique !Schner Flieger. Kabelverlegung des Hhenruderservos ein bisschen umstndlich, das geht besser wenn die Rumpfhlften nicht miteinander verklebt sind. Auch die Motormontage bei Auswahl von "nicht Original-Motoren und Motortrgern" wre mit nicht verklebten Motorgondeln leichter zu bewekstelligen. Die Tragflchen-Sperrholzholme sollten auch vom Kunden eingeklebt werden...die knnen das besser. Ansonsten alles gut.Just received mine. Very well packaged.
This is excellent value, and is going together really well.
Bought some of the suggested accessories (motor and ESCs), so will turn out to be a very cheap plane for what you get.
Probably going to make a take-off dolly for land use.
Will update after flight test.
