Wingspan: 40"      Power: TeeDee.049      Controls: Ailerons, Elevator

Inspired by the SeaWind flying boat, this oddball still looks good to me. Back in the day, I must have thought a TeeDee .049 could power anything! This looks like a perfect candidate for electric power with batteries in the nose for balance. Look close and you will see I've drawn a flat-bottom airfoil for this design. I rarely use flat-bottom airfoils, but it suits this particular model because it certainly isn't designed for aerobatics. This is the kind of plane that would make me smile just seeing it in the air. With that tail, it definitely needs a "bird" name.
