I never have a successful seaplane until now, this Icon A5 is beautiful to see and also a good flyer. You can choose to take it off from ground or from water, I have the plans for landing gear too. It made out almost entirely with 6mm Depron foam and a few plywood parts. It has a clear canopy and a pilot figure from papercraft that you can build. The decal also available for download. The plans come with A4 and A0 size and A3 for the decal. It has some issue on the tail but I already add plywood reinforcement part on the plans.
