Seawind .60-.91 Sport-Scale ARF

Seawind .60-.91 Sport-Scale ARFA beauty to behold — in the air and on the water!

No other R/C seaplane looks or flies like the sleek and stylish Seawind! This sport-scale replica of the classic homebuilt amphibious aircraft will draw envious looks from fellow modelers, whether you're at the flying field or the local lake. And by substituting optional retracts for the included fixed landing gear, you'll have total access to land AND water with the same plane!

  • Constructed with the finest materials — quality wood, gel-coated fiberglass and Top Flite® MonoKote® covering.
  • Shaped like a speedboat's hull, the fuselage maintains straight tracking while enabling the Seawind to accelerate quickly onto the step for takeoff.
  • A self-draining auto bailer is located on the bottom of the fuse, assuring that no water pools in the radio compartment.
  • A foam stand is included for holding the model securely during assembly and starting; it also keeps the water rudder up off of the ground.

Seawind

 
With its low number of parts, the Seawind ARF requires only 15-18 hours of final assembly. The fuselage and wingtips are gel-coated fiberglass; the built-up wing and tail section are made of balsa and covered in MonoKote.

 

Seawind

 
The fiberglass wingtips offer excellent stability in the air, and double as floats to support the plane while in the water. Because it has no bulky suspended floats, the Seawind flies faster than typical seaplanes.

 

Seawind

 
The unique boom-mounted engine design not only enhances the model's looks, it also reduces the likelihood of water "spray" reaching the engine during takeoff and landing. A 3-bladed aluminum spinner is included.

 

Seawind

 
For transportation convenience, the wing simply plugs into an aluminum joiner and is secured with nylon bolts that require no tools.

"The unique profile of the utilitarian Seawind will make it stand out at the flying field. But this great-looking ARF will also take to the water like the proverbial duck!"
