Beaver DHC2

A sheet of depron foam and some bits of balsa.
You shouldn't need much more than that to build this half scale model of the legendary Beaver DHC2.
A simple geared Speed 400 is enough to fly it. You can also decide to install a small brushless to have even better performances than with the Speed 400 motor.
It's an easy to build model and it has very good flight characteristics. That's a perfect plane for a beginner or for relaxed flight on a Sunday.

Here are some photos, one of which is the original plane of Hellenic Army back to '60s (still flying today as a seaplane in Canada!!).

The model is all balsa and the total weight is around 900 gr. The motor is brushless 1000kv and is strong enough to fly the model. I made transparent windows in order to make it look more realistic. Later I modified the cowl in order to be shorter and look also more realistic (but ballast on nose should be added). Ailerons have one servo each.
There is a video also from one of the first flights on youtube.

Thanks for the drawings and the manufacturing information from aerosquare website!
