This PBY Catalina Blue now includes Tomcat Skylord 30 Amp ESCs with

light controller for static and flashing operations.
The Consolidated PBY Catalina was an American flying boat, and later
an amphibious aircraft of the 1930s and 1940s produced by Consolidated
Aircraft. It was one of the most widely used seaplanes of World War II.
Catalinas served with every branch of the United States Armed Forces and
in the air forces and navies of many other nations.
During World War II, PBYs were used in anti-submarine warfare, patrol
bombing, convoy escorts, search and rescue missions (especially air-sea
rescue), and cargo transport. The PBY was the most numerous aircraft of
its kind and the last active military PBYs were not retired from
service until the 1980s. Even today, nearly 80 years after its first
flight, the aircraft continues to fly as a waterbomber (or airtanker) in
aerial firefighting operations all over the world.
Months of flight testing and design from Dynam yield an aircraft that
is very stable and capable of maintaining flight at slow speeds that
allow novices to master flight mechanics with ease. High quality scale
detail and a nice large 1.4m wingspan make this an attention-grabbing
model. Made from a high strength EPO-foam for added durability. Powered
by twin 1100KV electric brushless motors, all you need is a 4 channel
radio, 4 channel receiver and 3S 11.1V 2200-3000 mAh Li-Po battery and
you're ready for water-based sorties and patrols!
