West Michigan Park Flyers LLC is pleased to bring you the Mako Sea Plane designed by John W. Van Baren. This plane has a twin hull design for added stability during high speed water runs as well as improved ground handling making it as much fun on the ground as it is in the air. With its generous wing area and dual tail boom it sets in for some really long and smooth glide paths. On more than one occasion we have watched the designer set his transmitter on the ground and walk back to his chair while the plane comes in and lands on its own. Just line it up with the end of the runway trim up the elevator cut the throttle and let the plane do the rest. You have to see it to believe it. Of course this was done with a properly trimmed and tuned airframe but none the less it is quite amazing to watch.

From high speed ground action playing follow the leader doing hand stands (coined stink bugging) to flying in a group of mako's flying six wide through the turns bumping wing tips. I would have to say this is the most enjoyable airframe I have ever had the chance to fly. Its flight envelope includes rolling circles, rolling loops and eights, pop tops, high alpha rudder dips in the water, hand stands on dry land, as well as power slides on the snow and ice. This plane is literally as much fun in the air as it is in the ground.

Mako Sea Plane
I bought this kit about 18 months ago and I finally put it all together just a couple of weeks ago. its a super easy kit to assemble, and even a bigger joy to fly. I followed the build help on the forum to the letter and it flies so true and a great deal of fun. they recommend that you set both ailerons about 2-3 mm down from the level of the wing to prevent ballooning up and I highly recommend that you do. it works out perfectly. it instantly became one of my most favorite planes to fly. I like it so much I am building another one so I have one for the lake, and one for the rc fly park. I highly recommend this plane. I cant say enough about this plane. I absolutely love it.
