   Watching some of the takeoffs and landings in the "chop" those Guys really earned their flight pay! Neat stuff, thanks for sharing, James.
Cheers,

You are all welcome. Makes me wish that someone would do, besides Wingnut, some 1/32 German Seaplanes....

I would like to see someone produce the Hansa Brandenburg GW in 1:32 scale, a big twin engine floatplane would be excellent.

Thank you for posting this.  This all looks a bit hairy! There is a fairly stiff breeze there. I would say about a force 4/5 which means around 20 mph. It wouldn't take much for those landings to end in disaster.
