Difficult to takeoff
This is my second float plane. The first was a pipercub with floats. This aircraft struggles to take off of the water. The only option is to take off with a no wind day as even 1/2 inch waves will catch the wingtips on takeoff run and cause a 90 degree turn at near takeoff speeds. Fuselage is incredibly leaky and on all takeoff attempts the battery compartment was found filled with water. Lost one battery because of a that. This is a $200 float plane, the basic plane should not require hours of waterproofing and modification just to make it through a single takeoff. Taking off should be easy and its not. As a result of the above the 1st flight was off the grass: aircraft struggled to get airborne with recommended battery but flew nicely once in the air. Assembly was pretty standard for Dynam, cheap screws and parts but otherwise easy to put together. The battery compartment is organized in such a way that putting the battery aft enough to not have extremely nose heavy flight characteristics is a bit of a bother. Pros: Good stability, excellent glide ratio, smooth and fun control even with a basic transmitter setup (no expos, dual rates, ect), can takeoff of grass Cons: Very difficult to takeoff for the size and type of aircraft (ive taken off 60 inch underpowered warbirds at 7000 feet easier), not water tight due to poor build quality and design flaws. Maybe I got a bad one, but it has not been a fun aircraft to own.
Gets off the water quickly Flys great.loops,rolls etc.
we had a mishap with this plane 9lost signal no fault of plane ] the first week of january in a tree 60+feet so i gave up we have had some VERY widy days since then of over 50mph plane disappeared so here it is March and a very nice man says did you loose a plane lol low and behold there she was INTACT lol i thanked him my buddy says lets try her ya ok i said he rebound her and she flys like new the ant in my trans was the culprit this is a wonderful and apparetly rugged plane dont hesitate get it !!!!
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.
