Looking for Republic Rc-3 Seabee plans - preferably the Jack Lynn Bale plans, Cleveland, or the 1/4 scale G&P plans, as they have the correct wing position. Scans or paper

Traplet state they have have the Jack Lynn Bale plans for the Republic Seabee.
Some chatter on rcgroups on subject of whatever happened to Bale's plans after he died say that Traplet's owner, Tony Stephenson, was a friend of Jack when Traplet was based in Sierra Madre.

I've seen a fair number of online references and videos of r/c Seabee but have not seen a video of an r/c Seabee flying..... the cg issue is a big problem and the "correct" wing position makes this obstacle bigger.

There is a fellow in the northeast US, who has posted on "AirBergsma"'s youtube video of his as yet non-flying 60" Seabee, who has the username of 'petejulie1000' with whomI've exchanged a few emails; he is readying this same sized Seabee for r/c flight; he also posted in Wattflyer in a thread title republic Seabee.

oops.. here's a link to a 2 minute video of Christer Bergstrom's quarter scale Seabee flying off water in 2006 in Sweden

good luck
