    Giant 1:6.5 scale Grumann HU-16 ALBATROSS Flying Boat

    John Greenfield latest scratch built radio controlled model aircraft was flown at its first public event at North London Model Flying Clubs Scale Day. This model weighs ~42KG and is powered by two Zenoah 62cc engines. The wingspan is an impressive 4.8 metres. John took 1 year to build the model and a further year to design and engineer the undercarriage. He hopes to fly it off water in the near future!

    Great looking model.
    When I was considering buying a home with a pool, I started looking for an Albatross to anchor in the deep end. Couldn't find one, but there is a neat ready-built electric PBY made from Styrofoam.

    Thankfully, they not as large as the Albatross, that would fill most of the pool.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.
