Customer Reviews

Just what I hoped it would be Review by Claude
I am in the retraining mode as it's been a while since I have flown R/C models. I just received my 51in. Grumman 44 Widgeon. As I started to take it out of the box, I was very surprised. Checking out all pieces as the came out, the quality was immaculate, top quality . Far better that another plane that i had just recently acquired. I am very impressed. I live East of the Rockies in Colorado, not much water here, so I'll take my time with this and get my fly time in on my other plane so I'll be prepared to handle this on. I am really looking forward to getting this one in the air. They only go to five stars, this one is much more. I am glad I found Value Hobby and glad they still had this plane. Thank you!

Beautiful ARF with high wing loading Review by Austin
This is a very nicely done ARF. That was the first thing I noticed; the second was that it actually had no flaps as was advertised. The build itself went smoothly and I put on two 3536 900kv motors, two turnigy 45 esc's, and dual turning 2200 MaH lipos.
To sum up the flying characteristics: this seaplane has extremely high wing loading like all Widgeons tend to and flys well if a high enough speed is maintained. Below that speed it just falls out of the air so be prepared to fly it very aggressively. Not for the faint of heart!
