Republic Sea-Bee

150 PxVector  1.2 years ago

This is one of my favorite planes. The manufacturer, Republic, marketed it as an amphibious air car in the 1960s. There's a twin engine one at the airport near my house and i just love driving by it. Maybe someday I'll get to go for a ride. Anyway this plane was really tricky to make in sp due to the split nature of the fusilage. OK so flying it, due to the engine placement, requires a lot of nose up trim even at higher speeds.
