First I have to say special thanks to rcspaceflight, SnowRocker88, nevenelestate, and all the other people in the FT Forum for all the inspiration and to Flite Test for the skills that I have learned by building their airplanes!
Here is my version of the famous TaleSpin Sea Duck!
My Sea Duck prototype has a 900mm wingspan, differential thrust, and one inside elevator to reduce weight.
Look how she flies:
It took a few months to plan, build, and test this plane.
