Die Qualitt des Modells ist fr den Preis sehr gut. Ich habe das gesamte Modell nach dem Aufbringen der Abziehbilder mit Klarlack lackiert, da ich das Modell am Meer fliege. Die Stufe an der Rumpfunterseite habe ich vertieft auf 1 cm. Den vorgeschlagenen Antriebsmotor habe ich nicht eingebaut, sondern einen doppelt so starken. Beim berziehen kippt das Modell schlagartig ber eine Flche ab. Man muss mit ein wenig Motorleistung landen und flach anfliegen bis zum einwassern. Die Kabinenhaube habe ich mit selbstklebendem Dichtband abgedichtet, da sonst schon bei leichtem Wellengang Wasser in das Modell eindringt. Mit etwas Vorsicht beim Landen macht das Wasserfliegen mit dem Modell groen Spa
It is cheap but Don't buy this plane and buy some beers to your friend.
Overall quality, manual,painting, structure are poor, motor mount of the kit and picture over there are totally different. It is very hard to connect motor with ESC because of design.
Wings are too soft and ailerons are useless.
Save your time and money
Die EPO-Schaum-Qualitt ist nicht schlecht, aber der Flieger bentigt einiges an Nacharbeit.
Die Stufe am Unterboden ist zu gering bemessen um vom Wasser abheben zu knnen und muss nachgeschnitten werden. Das 9 Gramm Seitenruderservo sitzt sehr weit hinten im Leitwerk, weswegen der Schwerpunkt trotz einen 200 Gramm Akkus (LiPo 3s/2400mAh) nicht zu erreichen ist, es mu Ballast in die Nase. Die Lackierung ist nicht abriebfest, vermutlich ist der Lack nicht fr EPO gedacht - mit Parkettlack bermalen bringt Besserung. Die Flugeigenschaften sind eher was fr erfahrene Piloten, man berzieht sehr schnell und dann fllt die Icon beinahe senkrecht runter. Fr jemanden der bereit ist nachzubessern aber ein preisgnstiger Wasserflieger.
Product arrived 15 days was worth the shipping . I can't wait to fly it . I will add pictures soon of what's in the box . Comes with props , glue , push rods , instructions in English , wires install to elevator servo , wires for ailerons , motor mount, and hardware .
The wing has no spar apart from the wing joiner. It needs further reinforcement.
The model is crash resilient as I found out on the maiden flight when the wings were fluttering like a butterfly. If you like nice flying planes avoid amphibians as they seem to prefer the ground than the air. The COOTA is even worse.
Mam toto letadlo od HK ,doprava super, zabaleno super jen o kvalite se da pochybovat. Musim mnoho dilu prestrikavat hodne brousit a musim udelat hodne zmen . motor RAY C28-36/08, vrtule 9x5 tri lista,
Foam quality is not bad. However, too many mods to make it fly properly, cuild quality is not good at all. Step must be cut and deepened in order to make it even take from the water. It stalls fairly easy, the elevator pushrod is not rigid enough and it's not that waterproof. Considering the price, though, and if you don't mind doing some mods, a good plane. And definitely a pretty plane.
Beide Modelle die ich gekauft habe sind absolut erste Klasse und wesentlich besser als die vergleichbaren von anderen Firmen. Dieses Ding fliegt perfekt fr sein Geld. Ich wrde es immer wieder kaufen. Absolut TOP HK!!!
I am very frustrated. I get 2 of these. The first Model I try with 3S Motor and prop perfectly. All chances to get that very bad plane flying are gone. I tried any modifications to make it fly, but not possible. Also not running with 2S and other motor. I cannot understand if there was anyone who tell me that it is good. The wings are not stable enough and they are working during start, which make start not working. I am a professional flyer. If there is anybody who want a brandnew and a needed one with Motor and servos, than let me know. i send both from europe
very nice bit of kit !
value for money is an understatement !
I would like to know what other people have done to fix the wings in order to be able to remove them again for ease of transport ?
well done HK for yet another great kit !
