Grumman Goose Builders Short Kit : $ 349.00

Announcing the release of a long-awaited classic, designed by Sky Greenawalt of Acme Aircraft, and produced through development and prototyping by Fly2Build.  Two prototype models were built and flown to fine tune the design and test the performance, and partnering in this product development process were Mr. Duane Reigard and Mr. Ted Pierson.  Thank you guys!

 

The model construction is very straightforward, yielding a gorgeous framework with fuselage sides that are built flat on the bench, then assembled over the top view.  The wings consist of laser cut ribs, sheer webbing, carbon fiber plug-in wing tube, built up Nacelles and Tip Floats.  The empennage is constructed with beautiful laser cut assemblies that interlock together for strength and minimal weight.

 

Construction is intended for experienced builders as there isn’t a product manual supplied with the kit.  The helpful online build thread (linked above) serves as a useful “builder’s notes” reference.  Flying the Goose is amazing as it is very well behaved on the water, has an exceptionally light wing loading, and generous power with the recommend system.
