FMS Beaver 2000mm (78") Wingspan - PNP
78" wingspan FMS Beaver Plug-N-Play - (PNP) - FMM090P
One of the things we have learned in this hobby is that there are a large number of RC pilots who love to fly giant scale aircraft. FMS has listened to this feedback and has answered the call with this fantastic new Beaver float plane with a whopping 78" wingspan!
The Beaver comes with standard landing gear. Floats are optional so you can enjoy flying this giant airplane on both water and land. The wing comes with vortex generators to help improve lift and reduce stalls. The wing has a specialized pin connector that makes taking the wing off or putting it on a breeze. No messy servo leads to connect and disconnect so transporting this giant scale aircraft to and from your flying location is remarkably easy and convenient.
This FMS 2000mm Beaver also comes with LED lights so your flying adventures can occur from early dawn to dusk and beyond. If you enjoy large scale airplanes, this Beaver impresses both on land and water.
- Sporty and eye-catching black and yellow livery
- Wing pin connector allows for easy and simple transporting
- Vortex generators to help improve lift and reduce stall tendencies
- Flaps for slower landings and shorter takeoffs

Nice Plane-Assembly Review
Easy assembly and designed to be that way. Details are many and look good. No maiden on this one yet. More to come.
Yes today 07/30/18, 8 months after I maidened my FMS ****** I reached 100 flights. Except for minor quality control issues at the beginning this plane has been great. I have been flying for many many years and this has become one of my favorite planes. I highly recommend this plane for training new pilots and for experienced pilots to have a break from the stress and enjoy some leisurely fun flying. Get yourself one, you won't be sorry. I recommend changing the axels and replacing the rudder and elevator foam hinges immediately.
FMS 2000 mm ******
Great plane well built love it
Great looking bush plane!
Very easy to assemble. Have only flown twice off the runway . Nice solid Very predictable, solid flying airplane. With its size and color scheme it’s also very easy to see. Very little trim was needed on the maiden flight. Looks good in the air. Only complaint is the thin foam hinges. I’ll be adding some hinge tape to strengthen. On approach for second landing the elevator did glitch on approach. Like down elevator. Was able to compensate quickly. Not sure was my radio or the electronics box in the ******. Never happened on my other airplanes.
Plane flies decent. Touch and goes are fun, and aerobatics are limited, but fun as well. Issues lay in the electronics. Random control surfaces do what they want in flight. Rudder being one on take off almost resulting to a crash. Flaps and ailerons will go full deflection at any time with no input, thats a single surface by itself. If you buy one, trash the factory electonics and run a regular rx setup.
I'm really enjoying flying my ****** both on wheels and on floats. But - I've had the same quality issues I've read about from other reviewers here. Wheels fell off (changed axles to fix that), cowl very flimsy and warps when plane sits in the sun, and elevator hinges broken. Also, when the plane sits in the sun, the foam blisters up on all the areas painted black. Maybe the plane should be offered in another color scheme other than black black.
This is my first FMS model and it will not be my last. Beautiful design, very well constructed (except as noted below), and the smoothest flyer in my hangar. The maiden on wheels this morning went very well. I'm flying 6S 5000 batteries (2 3S in series) and after a 9 minute flight still had 30 minutes or more left in them. Sadly as seems to be the norm these days the manual leaves a lot to be desired. There is no information for setting up the flaps and the recommend control throws are in my opinion to tame. We flew the entire maiden from takeoff to landing using the high rates settings. Also, the rudder rates are not nearly enough even in high rates. This afternoon I flew the maiden float flight and luckily I did so flying off the snow and not open water. The initial takeoff was great with more than enough power to get off the slightly sticky snow and just as it did on wheels the model flew so smoothly and gently. After my first landing I had to adjust the throws on the rudder as the manual settings lacked sufficient deflection to turn the model. After changing the rudder settings the model taxied back uneventfully. I lined up for a 2nd takeoff and applied power. At about half throttle the model swerved sharply to the right and I watched in horror as the right float came rolling out from under the model and the model right side sank into the soft snow. Upon inspection I found that during construction only a thin bead of what looks like foam safe CA was applied to the outer edges of the connector. There was absolutely no glue down in the pocket where 90% of the connecting surface is found. Needless to say I will be inspecting the connectors on the left float as I glue the connectors back into the right float. BZ to the reviewer who posted his flaps & elevator mix rates. I programmed in 7% down for takeoff flaps and 15% for landing flaps and they worked perfectly.
The FMS ****** is a great flyer. Beautiful detail. The only thing FMS should improve is to put better hinges on the elevator and rudder. My friend has one he was flying in high winds and he lost the elevator because the hinge broke off on the control side. I used a thin coat of Foam - Tac on the elevator and rudder hinges on mine but I keep a close eye on them and don't fly in high wind.
Great plane, flies like a ******. There are different flying styles out there but I would say to a newer pilot to definitely get comfortable using the flaps for take offs and landings and get the flap / elevator mix dialed in correctly. After reading many reviews I do agree the tail foam hinge material is too thin and weak. So when I got my FMS ****** I immediately put Blenderm tape the full length on both sides of the rudder / elevator hinge surfaces as insurance, make sure to install the tape correctly, check You Tube. I discovered a minor issue right out of the box with the plane I received where the tiny philips head screws holding the cowl on the front of the fuselage were falling out on the underside. I simply drilled out the holes in the fuselage / cowl and installed slightly larger hex button head cap (M3) screws in black finish, one on top and two on the under side, three in total. I also upgraded the wheels to 5" Dubro inflatables and used the their 5/32" axles and collars. I definitely recommend this upgrade, you'll have to drill out the original landing bracket axle holes to 5/16" to secure the threaded lock nut end of the more substantial Dubro axles. Not necessary but I also fabricated an inline EC5 power harness to go between the battery and ESC power connectors so I could pick off battery pack voltage directly to power the UBEC I installed and sample flight pack voltage for my Spektrum telemetry monitoring. I isolated the ESC battery voltage normally powering the receiver by extracting the + pin off the servo extension lead I was using at the receiver for the throttle connection. I put two coats of satin finish Polycrylic on the plane which really helps the finish stand out, got many compliments at the club field with this big guy.
