CL-415 Canadair 1390mm (Red/White) (ARF)

CL-415 Canadair 1390mm (Red/White)  (ARF)
CL-415 Canadair 1390mm (Red/White)  (ARF)

The CL-415 is the only aircraft in the world purpose built as a firefighter, it is literally, a waterbomber. This big model Seaplane can be flown either off water or at your favourite grass flying feild, yet despite it's size, this kit can be completed for very little cost.
The model is very light, meaning little power is needed to get it "unstuck" and into the air, it also features a water steering paddle, connected to the rudder, for steering the model back to shore. If you are not flying from water, simply un-screw the water steering rudder and hand-launch, the Canadair's excellent manners mean a grass landing is a breeze. The kit features a very comprehensive hardware kit, including servo extension leads, 8x3.8SF props, spinners, glue and tools!

Thanks would not have thought of the pusher on one side. does it matter what side is pusher porp?
 Herbyaespen 279 points
The pusher-prop was on the right side (in flight-direction)

It honestly doesn't matter which engine is counter rotating, so long as one is and one isn't. It's that simple. The only way you would feel the "P" factor is if you were sitting in the airplane, which sadly we can't.

hmm sitting in plane......ok ihave to try with the fpv google setup on it. imagine trying to land on water fpv. goona be some butt puckering action!

Folks just got the plane, I like it very much. The foam is pretty rigid, not spongie, I like it that way, on the down size it will probably crack easier on impact. The finishing, especially the glue joints, could be better/cleaner. One thing I didn't like too much is that there is no provision to run the motor/servo cable in the wing, it's let to your immagination, I'll have to figure-out where to cut a groove in the wing without weakening it. It does not say anywhere but the model has undercamberd wing. Given the wing profile, both motors blowing across the wing and the elevator and the low weight, I expect this bird to be an excellent performer at slow speed. How did you all end-up with your ready to fly weight?

I haven't built it yet so can't answer yr weight Q. But I plan to drill out a hole with thin walled brass tube as the drill 'bit', and put in a 30" carbon tube (carbon arrow shaft (cheaper for me than carbon tube from a hobby store)) in the wing for additional stiffening. The servo wires will exit at the end of the arrow shaft and I'll burr away the shaft part way down for the braided motor to ESC wires to exit. The epoxied (apart from the heat sink) ESCs will be mounted high in the fuselage away from any moisture in the nacelles. andy

This bird will glide like the bix1.1 Don't be afraid to carve out channels for your wires as long as they don't weaken the structure of it. Use the fiber tape HK sells here to patch up the channels you make for you wires. Get ready for some fun landings with this girl, you'll look like a pro gliding her in for a perfect grass/water landing while having the props free-spin with the wind.

Bring back the yellow version, PLEASE!
 sofyan 12 points
I've got the yellow version but from other. Online shop with price higher than hk? Now i'm confuse when this item ready again in hk I also love this colour version

Pardon a dumb question but clue me in on the motor size 24/2210. I assume 24 is probably diameter but 2210 is a mystery to me, especially so since there are no outrunner's listed that match those numbers. I do understand the KV rating. Thanks!
 sofyan 12 points
I think you better try to find the motor which have stick mounted propeler, it will make simple and easy when you mount them, this kit only provided 2 stick as motor mounting.
 Ral fRotten 2035 points
The 2210 means the stator size, inside the motor, the stator is 22mm long by 10mm wide :-) some measure the outside case, like turnigy 2826, the case is 28mm long and 26mm wide, WHICH IS MORE OR LESS THE SAME AS A 2212 MOTOR!......2 Different measuring systems for the same motor! ebay sell some 2200kv motors as 2212 and hobbyking sell the turnigy same size motor as 2826, so you have to read between the lines to work out what motor you want, like a 2826 is nearly the same as what your looking for *-)

Ich liebe die Canadair. Habe schon die gelbe Variante. Fliegt absolut gutmuetig, hat aber auch nichts gegen Loopings und Rollen. Fliege sie mit Lipos 3s 3700 mAh, 30 A Esc blue series, 2818 Brushless Outrunner 1350KV und 8x6x3 Props

Just test flown mine today. Wow I love this model. Its overpowered a bit but nice to have in reserve. Have made hinged access hatches in the nacelles for betteraccess to the ESC's and slotted the wing for the wiring, much nicer now. Takesoff from grass in under 10 mtrs flies on less than half throttle, it does have a nosedown flying angle which looks great, touch and goes are so easy. Yet to try water but can't see any problems. Great value for money.

Absolutely brilliant model, for the price. The foam is delicate, and very light weight. I laminated the entire model. An additional spar is recommended of the wing. Some fiberglass covering was applied to the belly, for additional protection. Set up with 22/14 1450Kv and 25A ESC's, HK 9g sevos. Flies slow and stable. Perfect for a beginner / trainer. Easily hand launched and belly landed. Build was straight forward, manual and most accessories were included.The model is surprisingly quiet, very easy to fly, cruises easily at 1/4 throttle. Highly recommended for relaxed smooth and stable flying, on the water!
