The Consolidated PBY Catalina was an American flying boat, and later an amphibious aircraft of the 1930s and 1940s produced by Consolidated Aircraft. It was one of the most widely used seaplanes of World War II. Catalinas served with every branch of the United States Armed Forces and in the air forces and navies of many other nations.
During World War II, PBYs were used in anti-submarine warfare, patrol bombing, convoy escorts, search and rescue missions (especially air-sea rescue), and cargo transport. The PBY was the most numerous aircraft of its kind and the last active military PBYs were not retired from service until the 1980s. Even today, nearly 80 years after its first flight, the aircraft continues to fly as a waterbomber (or airtanker) in aerial firefighting operations all over the world.
Dynam have produced something unique this time with the PBY Catalina seaplane. Months of flight testing and design yield an aircraft that is ultra stable and capable of maintaining flight at super slow speeds that allow novice to master flight mechanics with ease. High quality scale detail and a generous 1.4m winspan make this an attention grabbing model. Generous power is provided by the twin 1100KV motors and constuction is from a high strength EPO-foam for added durability. The Catalina is all powered by a 11.1v li-poly battery pack that provides up to 10 minutes flight timen for each charge.
