Dynam PBY Catalina Blue 1470mm (57") Wingspan - PNP - DY8943PNP-BLUE
This PBY Catalina Blue now includes Tomcat Skylord 30 Amp ESCs with XT60 connectors, LED lights with pre-soldered connector ends and a LED light controller for static and flashing operations.
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!

- 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.

Basic airframe good like my other dynam but the electronics are weak.
Overall good airplane
Extra magnets weren't enough to hold the hatch in place on hard landings. Recommend spending a dollar at the hardware store for something that rotates over the hatch to keep it in place. Some places weren't glued together properly. Wingtip float came off because there was only a small amount of glue on the back side of the wing bracket. Not a big deal, just glued it back on properly. The front also needed some glue to keep water from coming through the front of the fuse. I recommend corrosion x on all the servos and other electronics. The servos pop off easy enough, then hot glued back in place. Extra screws, props, and spinners came with it, which was nice. Be careful when setting the CG. Directions show 60-65cm from leading edge on the picture...but says 80-85cm on the worded part. Kind of confusing and 80-85 seems about right. Just simple fixes and it's good to go. I enjoy flying this plane on the lake where I live.
GREAT! with some small modifications
Great flying aircraft after a couple of mods 1. Raise front of wing by minimum 3/16 of an inch (to match Horizontal Stab) 2. Shorten Float Stunts by 3/8 to 1/2 inch (easier to take off on water prevent floats from catching on takeoff and landings) Since mine is over 6 years old, I added wheels due to plastic starting to get brittle

I love Catalina. Really good plane. Tail was bent and the rudder broken. Wish the packing /delivery was better.
Catalina PBY Review
Came with bad elevator servo. Went together well Water runner does not reach down to water. Props hot water on take off Flies well with new elevator servo Hard to viewing read construction pictures
i have not flown it
i have not flown it as of now will fly it this spring off of my boat pby went together well looks great i would like to know if a 4 cell lipo would be ok i will give this plane 5 stars and will be buying other dynam planes
Nice model, lots of posts on web & YouTube , thankfully, the instruction sheet that comes with the model...use the web
Very Stable and easy flyer
Plane is a easy build, However I strongly suggest cutting a small hole to fit a servo a couple inches from the elevator. The thin wire from the supplied servo bends very easy And it will not give it enough throw. Don't be afraid to beef up the wing hold down screws, I tapped mine out to a 3mm Has plenty or power for take offs and is a good slow flyer for the price it really is a fun plane to fly.
