Beaver DHC2

Quelques feuilles de dépron et un peu de balsa suffisent pour construire cette reproduction du légendaire De Havilland Beaver DHC2. Une motorisation simple et économique, un Speed 400 réducté ou un petit brushless, suffit pour le faire voler.
C'est un modèle facile à construire qui vole très bien. Idéal pour débuter ou se détendre le week-end

Le Beaver de Erkki Kontiainen

Détails

Peut-être le plus joli Beaver construit à ce jour!

Thanks a lot for your plan. It's such a nice airplane!
This plane is the CF-FHB-X, the first Beaver in the world.

CFFHBX_2_sm.jpgHere are some photos for you. I will send in flight photos when we can take them (now here is winter and too much wind or fog...impossible to fly :( ) maybe next week. If you want more photos or some details, please ask.

I made my Beaver using your plans. Cowl is little different. Base material is depron (3mm/6mm). Some parts are balsa and plywood.

I made different aileron and flaps (both using own servos). Whole mechanism is inside wing. Rudder and elevator mechanism is also inside fuselage (last end of fuselage is possible open if need service). I covered whole plane using plastic based real aluminium tape. Weight (include battery) is 790g. There is flying and landing lights in wing and they can control via R/C.

Beaver is very nice to fly and landing using flaps is very easy.
