    Thanks Ron for bringing this aircraft to my attention as you've done with a few in the past. My first seaplane. I've successfully scaled this ErcoCoupe up to 75%. Of course she's big and beautiful, and you'll be thrilled with how well she flies, and how great she sounds. On landings, just give her enough waterway, drop the flaps, line her up, chop the throttle, take your hands off the sticks and watch her land herself.

    Although this aircraft is not really aerobatic, she does great knife edges and if you're skilled enough, she'll hover at high rates. Just turn on the smoke and have a blast.

    For takeoffs or landings, all you need is 50% flaps, (Should you choose to use flaps.) but she does just as well without them.

    This aircraft has been balanced and tuned to fly exceptionally well with no trim, by adjusting the physics, the CG, tuning the incidences of the flying surfaces and motor, adding mixes and applying AS3X flight stabilization.

    Dual Rates: Channel 5 (Standard)
    Flaps: Channel 6
    Smoke: Channel 7
    AS3X Control: Channel 8 (3 Pos Switch)
    Eight Camera Views: Keyboard F1 Through F8
