Nice Flying Seaplane
I purchased this plane because I like flying off of water and it is a really neat looking plane. Even though Dynam is a middle of the road name, my experience with their planes has been good over all. I can compare the Seawind to my Flyzone Tidewater since I have many flights on the Tidewater and love the way it handles on water. All of my statements are made based on water operations. The Seawind, with it's larger wing span, is easier to see and seems more stable in the air. It is not over powered, but for my style of scale like flying it is more than adequate. It will loop from level flight, but don't expect huge round loops from it. On the water the Tidewater is much better than the Seawind. The Tidewater's water rudder is deeper in the water which helps it fight the weather vane affect wind has on seaplanes. Takeoffs are about the same with both planes once you have them pointed into the wind. Landings on the other hand is where the Tidewater really shines. I can land the Tidewater glass smooth even if there are some ripples on the water. With the Seawind I can't get it to touch the water without bouncing a time or two. It wants to skip along the water like a flat stone. I haven't had any mishaps that involve the plane flipping and have been able to taxi to shore, but it is just not as pretty landing as the Tidewater is. I also had to seal some of the seams, like where the bottom of the wing meets the fuselage, to keep water out of the fuselage. I did this with vinyl film and the plane has stayed dry since. If you fly from land be aware that the pod that the motor is mounted in will flex if you land hard and the prop will strike the top of the fuselage. This happened to me. I was able to repair it easy enough and I switched to a 9X7X3 prop to gain 1/2 inch of clearance. Since I mainly plan to fly this plane from water and snow, I'm hoping not to have the problem again. If this plane was as good on water as the Tidewater, and if the motor pod was a little stiffer this would be a five star plane in my book.
The airplane leaked water into the airframe on the first flight causing the receiver and ESC to be soaked with water. I dried it out, sealed the bottom plastic covers with caulk and tried again. On the second flight the receiver lost contact and the airplane crashed......breaking the right wing. Fixed the wing, replaced the receiver and tried again. This time the airplane would not produce enough power to get airborn off the water. I believe all the problems result from the leaking fuselage and wet components. No happy and do not recommend this product!!
Plane with issues right out of the box.
Writing this review after having some time to work out all the issues with this plane. Had it over 2 months now. Plane went together well for me. No indications of any problems except my elevator control rod would choose to flex instead of travel the elevator in the up direction fully. First flight it was doing beautifully for 5 minutes. Then it seemed to be low on power so I brought it in. Had all control surfaces but extremely weak motor. Landing on the water was excellent but I couldn't reach the plane where it had came to rest, and it would not taxi. Before I could get my shoes off people said "Your plane is on fire!" Smoke was billowing out of the cockpit area and out the top engine pod. ESC had some short in it and nearly burned but luckily the battery leads melted off and stopped the supply of juice. Motion RC sent me a replacement ESC quickly with no headache. I was very thankful. I pulled the three wires to the motor and the motor and could see no damage or places for a short. Installed new ESC. As SOON as I placed the battery in a little tiny puff of smoke from the ESC. That ESC would turn the prop but not enough for flight. At this point Motion RC were not willing to send any more parts but did offer advice, all of which though I had already ruled out with my fluke meter and other tools. Went to my local hobby shop and purchased a 40amp E-Flight. Worked flawlessly. Never another problem with the ESC or power side after that though the ESC gets hot in there. No good way for air that's not gonna let water in. A few weeks later I crashed this plane hard after inverting it but the elevator linkage bound and there was not enough nose down to keep it in the air. Tried to roll over but failed. Overall I dislike this plane. So many problems I've never encountered with E-Fight stuff. This was my 4th plane but first and last Dynam.
motion got the plane here fast as usual the directions are poor and dont help much but still didnt take long to build i centered all the surfaces as best as i could my buddy took her up to trimm it said no trim was needed she flys great looks really nice in the air all in all another great purchace from motion
3rd seaplane in my fleet
Instructions were good Putting it together was pretty easy Battery location great easy to get to Had to modify battery comp area for rec. I had to knotch a space in battery comp area And seat in rec hides away nicely and with speed control Made two slits in foam to install strap to Secure speed control also had to remove elev flap and re hinge To stiff also servo linkage from elev servo to elevator very thin Should have been a little stiffer weak point I've been watching clips of it flying looks amazing seems easy enough they say you can put a 4s battery in maybe after fling with 3s first also some people are saying to put a bigger prop on ? Others are saying a hard landing and the prop strikes body of plane
Seawind flies off snow and ice too.
A great flying plane that can be flown off snow/ice as well as water. Will also fly this off grass later. Will not install included landing gear. Easy take off run and lifts off gently without any fanfare. Does rolls left/right nicely, does loops well, flies inverted easily. Very predictable stall characteristic - drops a wing, drops nose and recovers in very little altitude. Can handle 4s (2200mah) with stock ESC. Using 9x7x3 prop. Very good power. Landing takes some practice or it "skips". Like most high mounted, rudder pod motor, sudden application of power will cause plane to take a slight dip before resuming its line. Learn to use some UP elevator and this is not noticeable. Beautiful plane to see in the air. Kudos to MotionRC for being able to ship this to Canada by USPS while others have failed.
Great looking, great flying
I really like this plane. I'm flying off water and don't plan on using the landing gear. The recommended cg was a really good place to start. I upgraded the ESC to 60a and run 4s 2000's, but after flying around quite a bit and only putting about 1000mah back in the pack, it might be ok with stock esc. I clipped about 1/2" total off the prop for the extra cell, but learned afterward that some guys are having the stock length prop tips cut the fuselage on landing. Good thing I clipped it then! The motor has plenty of power. I installed fowler flaps. Dynam put them on a couple of the other planes, so I don't know why they left them out here. It really helps slow it down and I can land nice and short after coming over trees. The water rudder needs to be extended since it nearly comes out of the water at full travel. Steering in the water is not good, but I think an easy fix. I had to glue all of the magnets back in the fuselage as they were loose when I got it. I used E6000. If you're looking for the connector for the elevator, it's in the bag with the glue. I only found it after I was done and cleaned up. I painted the cockpit, found a better pilot and swapped the Y harnesses for extensions so I have each servo 09arate in the rx.
Motion RC got this right out and it shipped quickly. Arrived all good and packaged well. Build was very easy and straight foreward. I hooked it up with flaperons and set it up with duel rates. Gave it 30% expo on all channels. I did take note of the possible prop strike on hard landings, so I trimmed a bit off the stock prop, reshaped the tips and rebalance it. Maidened it today off grass field without the landing gear in 8mph winds with 12mph gusts. Stock setup with 3s 2200mah. Took 20 ft and up she went. Plenty of power and thrust to get her airborn. Only needed 1 click right aileron and two clicks down elevator to fly true. The plane flew flawlessly and had no trouble with the winds. Flew mostly half throttle with a bit more during rolls. Nice snappy rolls for the size of the plane. Had no trouble bringing it in for landings and flaperons worked really well on this bird. Got 12 minute flight with three take offs and landings and battery had 11.4 volts remaining. Not bad at all! This is a nice plane for anyone with 4 channel flight experience. Really looking foreward to taking it up to camp this spring and flying off the lake. The Dynam Seawind handles better than my Flyzone ****** with the floats on. Thank you Motion RC.
