Dynam PBY Catalina Grey V2 1470mm (57") Wingspan - PNP
Dynam PBY Catalina Grey V2 1470mm (57") Wingspan - PNP - DY8943PNP-GREY
This is the new and improved version (V2) of the Dynam PBY Catalina Grey. This new version now includes Tomcat Skylord 30 Amp ESCs with XT60 connectors, and all new LED navigation lighting with LED control board (no more bare leads). 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!

Product Questions & AnswersNOTE: Questions submitted on this page are answered by customers who have previously purchased this item. If you have a support related question that requires immediate assistance, please visit our Help Center.
- January 15, 2019 - The instruction manual states 80-85mm CG from the wing's leading edge. The illustration incorrectly states 60-65mm. The proper CG for this model is in fact 80-85mm.
- November 8, 2014 - You have to solder on your own connector in order to Y-harness the lights into another channel or nearby servo. Also for the RTF version make sure the included Detrum receiver/gyro is securely mounted to the fuselage before attempting to fly this airplane.

now thats fun
well this is a model for everyone!!!! i Love to fly this plane every day! buy it and let every body see it!!!
Instruction say cg =60 to 65mm on the picture instructions. Written instruction below picture says cg = 80 to 85mm. Set plane up every thing ready to go. Have flown numerous 4ch -5ch planes including mustangs no problem. plane unflyable crashes pontoons lost in ocean. Slots in wing show little or no glue holding pontoons. Now must order new pontoons $20 or may choose to pull the plug on this frustrating plane.... Too bad love the looks of it went together well. safety warnings over esc worrysome. Was hoping the flying boat configuration would be less likely to tip over during taxi but this one is worse than a regular plane with pontoons mounted to the fuse.
