PBY Catalina
PBY Catalina

The fast, easy way to enjoy realistic seaplane adventures.

  • Easy-to-assemble seaplane beats the pontoon blues – it's not just a plane with floats!
  • Recreates the look of the 1930s-era naval military/sea rescue just hours rather than weeks.
  • Features a lightweight, beautifully hand-crafted fiberglass fuselage and factory-covered, built-up wood wing and tail.
  • Recommended RimFire twin brushless motors provide the ideal power-to-weight ratio for exciting water takeoffs and landings.

included cradle

battery hatch
This easy-access hatch on the top of the PBY Catalina ARF fuselage provides quick access to the battery compartment for pack installation or removal. A LiPo flight battery offers the high voltage and low weight needed for exceptional flight performance.
