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!
Hi guys, can anyone help me how dual motors work, my understanding is 2 esc can use Y cable to connect to single channel, how about battery connection? how can I connect 2 esc to one battery? My Tx is basic 4 ch HK radio, Thanks..
Hi, Helil. You need a connector harness - two female on one end / and one male on the other end.
The two female are for the two ESC and the other male end for the battery. Alternatively you can cut off the battery connector from one of the ESC and connect it in parallel (black to black / red to red ) to the battery line of the other ESC, solder them and insulate them using heat shrink. Hope this is helpful to you.
If this plane was at your local hobby shop it would be 200$ or more because of its size and appeal. Christmas is coming, choose the cheapest/slowest shipping and give yourself a nice present under the tree *-)
can anyone advice which motor mount is suitable?

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!
