HobbyKing Seaplane RC Model Kit

HobbyKing Seaplane RC Model Kit
HobbyKing Seaplane RC Model Kit

Unusual looking, yet nicely scaled. The Icon-A5 is made from crash resiliant EPO foam. 
This 1.38m model RC seaplane is different from the real ICON A5 in flight, its very easy to fly and comes with a rudder for better control in water.

04/13/2014 I purchased and received this from HK and HK won't let me write a review. This happens on about 10% of my orders and it's quite frustrating. Airframe came undamaged and was VERY well packaged. Instructions are only fair. (Why, after all these years of trade between China and the US, is the syntax and English usage still so deplorable?) Anyway, construction photos are only fair (too small) but mostly make sense. Note there is no guidance on motor mounting, and the metal wing struts have weak plastic ends. PLEASE NOTE: My plane's right wing weighs 74.3g and the left only 57.6* of course, that's in identical "condition", and yes, I double-checked. An instruction addendum says to use a 2815-KV1500 motor, 30A BL ESC, 3S-2200MAH battery, and instructions say to "remove the float". This ARF includes two 8X3.8 props.

1 thumbs up!
I have one, bought from somewhere else, paid alot for it ARF. It was under powered and pretty darn hard to fly, think it needs more airleron or lots of speed. Put it down for a while. Better they sell just the airframe, it's very nice construction, 36bucks screaming good deal.
Not sure what they mean by "fly's better than the real ICON".. Who's flown the real ICON? Cool vids out there of the full scale tho. RCgroups might have setup tips

Ecconomico, per si deve fare un sacco della modifica sullo scafo sotto e mi sembra che gli allettoni sono molti piccoli rispetto l'apertura alare.

I did the fuselage mod and had no problems getting it off the water with a 2410, 9X4.7 and 3s 1300mah li-po. Once off it flies poorly, underpowered with this setup. it likes to fly fast or not at all. the stall is terrible resulting in a violent wing drop. i made use of some flaperons to try to slow it for landing. Bad idea!! It immediately enters a un-recoverable spin. It is quite durable though. It is i nice looking plane, Just tough to fly!!

i have maidened her today from the water. she actually can do it without mods to the hull! forget about slowflyer props and low kv motors. i have used 1600kv bell outrunner with towpro stick mount, tgy ae-30 esc, 1800mah 3s zippy battery (have to sand battery tray to fit) and 7x6e apc style prop. main hurdles awaits you at the pushrod system for ele and rud. i had to build a guide to remove pushrod flex. look for videos of my maiden at video tab.
