Nope....quality is usually not cheap. However, very few people complain after buying a quality product..!

Big plane with a 74" wingspan! Reminds me of my PBY Catalina... But that one is foam and smaller / lighter. I have only flown it from water twice, instead preferring my ICON A5.

I am always concerned when accessing the battery compartment as it is solidly between the props... Definitely in the "line of fire" should something happen!!

Are you getting one, Bill?

Not yet...but I have a soft spot for the "Goose". Many great stories about it's history.

A company in the US is remaking the full size Goose, with turbo-prop engines and demand is good.
