RC Float Planes
RC float planes are increasing in availability but they’re obviously not as widely available as land airplanes. If you have a lake close to home, a float plane can be a lot of fun but get good at landing on land before you attempt water landings! Losing an rc airplane in the drink isn’t a lot of fun…
If you have access to a lake or wide and slow-flowing river, rc floatplanes and seaplanes can give you a more challenging and very rewarding radio control flying experience.
There aren’t a huge number of Ready To Fly floatplanes widely available at the current time, but there are several options available. Notably, HobbyZone’s ever-popular Super Cub can be fitted with a pair of floats, available from the same manufacturer.
The Super Cub makes a good beginner’s rc floatplane, and it certainly looks good with floats attached…
