Canadair CL-215 76in

MAN's Canadair CL-215 76in

I saw pictures of this plane on TV and the real thing up towards the Ontario/Manitoba border North of Ear Falls. This plane makes an excellent model albeit large. Candidate for 3.3 to 4.1 cc engines. Would also be a great model to convert to electric. The plans are clear and readable. Maiden flight of this model in the video section. Pilot was obviously very nervous and there's some pretty wacky flying. :)

The Canadair CL-215 (Scooper) was the first model in a series of fire-fighting flying boat amphibious aircraft built by Canadair and later Bombardier. The CL-215 is a twin-engine, high-wing aircraft designed to operate well at low speeds and in gust-loading circumstances, as are found over forest fires. It is also able to land and take off from short, unpaved airstrips.

Love building and flying. I've always flown on private property and only been involved with clubs twice. I live in southern Ontario Canada near Niagara Falls. I build at least one plane a year. I am fairly new to 3D helicopters.

My name is Donnie and I've been flying planes, helicopters, racing cars and launching rockets since 1970 when I got my first U-control plane from Carl Goldberg models. I finally got my first RC in 1983 a Cessna 182 kit with four channels. My favorite planes are 3D of every sort of aircraft. Anything capable of punching holes in the sky. IRL I work with programming and I use the skills I have to build my own designs and plans. Thank you for the donations.
