  I was at my local Hobby shop when I found a new laser cut kit from Guillows that being a DHC2 24in wingspan Beaver. It was only $28.00 Canadian after taxes. The kit looks good nice laser cutting. I would get stuck in to right away but I have a ducted fan attacker (with a brand new KP26mm fan) and  a Dare hobby Sopwith pup to finish befor July( and a couple of others to check off the list as well.) I do think though in true Guillows fashion this will be over built and heavy but only with building it can I confirm it. I am happy for I do like the DH line of aircraft.  I will post pics when I am done my modals thanks Rob.b

Happy building to all. Grin

Honestly, although I have too many projects running, I'd buy this one if it was in the shops here.
Seems like a quick and rewarding build.

Did you finish the Beaver and get it to fly ? I have the kit and just might attempt to get it done. Thanks for any suggestion you can offer.

Yes, you can get it to fly.

Thee design weight of the model is 45 grams built out of the kit.  The one you see in my video weighs about 10 grams more than that and it's still quite flyable.  Obviously, John Cooper did some lightening to get it down to 34 grams with the floats.
