new here and some pictures

This is the place to discuss and ultimately show-off all aspects of constructing and actually flying your radio-control flying boat models. Pictures of construction, materials used, finishing and action shots of them flying, are very welcome.

Hi all,

my own Savoia S.65 has recently taken to the air.
Some facts: 4485g flying weight, 165cm span, 2 Kontronik Kora 25 motors, one -13 wound and one -12 wound with thicker copper than stock factory wound. Battery is a 6S 4400mah, ESC two Schulze Future Value 60A-types.

And here are some pictures:

I have done 4 flights that day, and will make some more the next weeks. Painting will start over the winter month's.

Beautiful! The S.65 is a challenging model from what I understand. Quite an accomplishment to build a good flying one.

Hi all,

attached is a link to a late-fall-flying of my own Savoia S.65.

Bill, the S.65 isn't tricky to fly, but you have to be watchful regards CG: the model flies fine even with a back-shifted (and trimmed-out) CG, but tends to dive then; it is hard to re-establish control. Also it tends to do this in hard-flown corners. Otherwise flying with a back-CG is quite fine.
At the moment I am giving her a coat of paint and some detail...

Hi all,

something new from germany. Last winter season I made a 1/6 scale model of the Nieuport-Delage Sesquiplan, with both wheels (as it was) and floats (I found a 3-view in the book "the Schneider Trophy" by Davis Mondey).

Her some pictures.
with wheels:

and with floats:

Here is the complete build thread (in german language):
