Make the Tidewater your first — or next — float plane! It boosts your confidence with predictable flight characteristics and easy water handling. A brushless/LiPo power system provides exciting sport aerobatics and plenty of muscle to make takeoffs a snap, whether from water, snow, grass or by hand. At full throttle, the Tidewater is fast and powerful. When it's time to land, just point the plane into the wind, reduce speed and keep the wings level…it almost lands itself!
The Tidewater's durable, factory-built AeroCell airframe screws together for fast, easy assembly without gluing. Spanning less than 3-1/2 feet, the Tidewater fits fully assembled into virtually any car. If necessary, main sections can quickly be taken apart and reassembled at the flying site. The magnetic hatch allows easy access to the battery for quick changes.
The motor and propeller avoid water contact by being positioned above the wing. Their location also ensures pilot safety during hand launches. Wing tip floats are designed for superior water handling and install quickly without requiring any tools or screws.
Flyzone captures the look of full-size seaplanes in the Tidewater's white, red, and gray trim scheme. Its fuselage bottom is carefully contoured to reduce water spray and deliver excellent handling while taxiing and during takeoffs and landings.
With a Tx-R, you don't have to buy a special radio to fly. That's because all Tx-R aircraft come with an SLT receiver. And since they do, you have two very attractive choices.
One, you can fly a Tx-R with a 2.4GHz SLT radio system from Tactic or other manufacturer. Just look for a radio with an "SLT" logo; that tells you they're 100% compatible with the receivers in all Tx-R aircraft.
However, you may already have a favorite transmitter and don't want to give it up. That brings up choice #2: the Tactic AnyLink2. Attach it to your transmitter and it does something amazing: it broadcasts a true 2.4GHz signal that any SLT receiver can pick up. It works with virtually all transmitters, regardless of brand, band or modulation. And it not only costs less than a new radio; it costs less than many receivers.
All measurements are from the leading edge of the wing at the fuselage side.
