Fantastic design & very true to the “original”. It looks like it flies great and seems to have the power to make it a lot of fun. What are the three channels you mentioned? Would this make a good short range FPV plane? Seems like it has all the cargo space necessary & I want one I can fly off water. Great video. Thanks for all you guys do to help us noobs get in and stay in the hobby.

I have an Ace Seamaster and the water rudder make is power slide while going fast in the water. It’s super fun to fly and easy too.

Brianna Michelle says:

Any plans on making any of the other planes from the same show? 🙂

twoeightythreez says:

I really miss this show and wish disney would have rebooted it instead of Jungle Book.
Maybe they can still do one but from a different angle, such as a Kit Cloudkicker story (a decade later, perhaps just after WW2) with flashbacks to Baloo and the higher for higher gang.

Ok about the model…fN awesome! I am amazed that a plane which was randomly thought by amimators on a tight production schedule flies so well and has such an inherently flightworthy design!

Daniel Campos Ramos says:

Hey guys, what about Swat Kats fighter??

the Jack 180 Channel says:

I’ve seen all of your videos I’ve watched sine I was 5

Caelyn Nagle says:

For me it wasn’t talespin that made me love seaplanes. I did watch it a bit, but I was already an adult by the time of it’s first release. No for me, seaplanes were the focus of the 1982 live action tv series called Tales of the Gold Monkey, in which the show’s hero flies a Grumman Goose called “Cutter’s Goose””, but most often just called “The Goose” in the show. Being so invested as you are in aeronautics, I would hope you’ve heard of this show. It takes place before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on a fictional South Pacific island called Bora Gora. This show was one of my favorite shows as a kid, and I still love it today, even though I see how bad some of it’s episodes are. The series is available on DVD. I still haven’t bitten the bullet and tried RC aircraft, beyond a Steampunk RC Dirigible I built a few years ago, which didn’t fly well at all. 🙂 But watching your channel is making me want to dive in to the hobby.

Bry Pie says:

Tail spin aww memories

Bradley Fortner says:

I love this. I already have two hobbies (fishkeeping and gaming), so I can’t take on a third. But man, this plane sure makes me want to.


nice work i want 1 for myself
