A friend of mine, who's not even really into RC, sent me that link a while back. Very impressive performance, pretty sure it's all foam, maybe reinforced in places. I bet it has metal or plastic skids for street/grass, if not, they'd be an easy mod. I'd buy one, a nice brushless/li-po combo would make it alot of fun to take to the local park/beach/track...versatility!

That kit is absolutely sick. I am amazed at how well it works.

I think if they could market that as a kit, it could do well.

It's amazing how well the models function on water up in the air or on the grass. One thing comes to mind though. Isn't there a FCA regulation that if a model can fly (not sure what qualifies for airplane) it needs to be on airplane frequency, not sure which one it is, but I always thought it's different then land one for safety reasons.

Obviously they must have all licences and permits covered otherwise they wouldn't throw money into production process, but I still wonder how did they get around that frequency issue.

It's likely they just went with aircraft frequency, you need a 4th channel to have that flaperon style control system. Unless the throttle is an on-off switch, but it looked like they had proportional ESCs.
