The above is re. the RT short kit I think...the Unionville kits come complete. The only thing I have had to purchase for my Norseman is water rudders for the floats.

Ken: FYI I fly the 6' Otter on E-power. The Otter kit is not very scale as it comes out kinda boxy. The beaver should be better, as the full size was boxy.

The lack of wing area on these models demands that you keep the weight down and the only real place you can do that is in the power system. I finally ended up using an AXI 2820/10 and 7 subC cells. Of course LiPos will help even more, to get the plane to fly near scale speeds. Tex.

I have the 6ft Unionville on electric,beautiful flying airplane, can be flown very scale. Mt does not have flaps, but will for next season.
I use a Scorpion 3014-18 (now called a 3014-1040), 11/6 apc prop (12/6 cut to 11) on either 3S2800 or 4S 2300 Zippy. 3S gives 10 minutes easily while flying scale off wheels, 4S is used for floats, more than doubles the power!!
