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. Included is a GAVIN-6A 6-Channel 2.4GHz Transmitter, Detrum MSR66A 6-Channel 2.4Ghz Mini Receiver with iStone 6-Axis Gyro/ABS, 3S 11.1V 2200 mAh LiPo battery so after the build you will be ready for water-based sorties and patrols!

- 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.

Dynam PBY 58" RTF
have it over two weeks, still sending parts back, never got operational.it
Had to work through some issues due to quality control. 1. Fuselage appears warped. Tail is not parallel with wing 2. Broken antenna on transmitter 3. Warped propeller. Thought shaft was bent. 4. Lousy instructions. Took a lot of figuring and YouTube tips. MotionRc replaced prop and offered to replace transmitter. I haven’t flown it yet so I don’t know if the antenna is a problem yet.
My first aileron model.....Dynam PBY 'grey cat'
A++ great **** for the buck...love the upgraded 7 channel Detrum Gavin transmitter combo that was included. Giant leap from the original. 10 min run time on included lipo. Plenty of power....put it this way, at full throttle....she literally sings. Seriously love my Cat. Stop thinking about it, and just get the bloody thing. You will thank yourself. Intermediate only, this is not a first plane for the average noobie.
