NOTES FROM THE DESIGNER

A prop in slot version of the Convair XF2Y Seadart. It is basically a semi-profile park jet that can fly off water. The Seadart can fly off grass or water.

Some handling tips:
Water handling: A medium fast taxi that lets the plane just rise up on the ski and the tip floats is the easiest way to get around on water. At higher speeds, where only one tip float may be touching the surface, a bit of aileron with the rudder helps with turning.
Take off: A good take off technique is to let the plane accelerate until it is just riding on the ski and then apply gentle up elevator to get it airborne smoothly.
Flying: General flying is easy. Expect some minor pitch changes when suddenly opening the throttle at very low speeds, due to the high thrust line.
Landing: Landings are easy. These can be done fast and smooth or you can flare to zero airspeed and plop down.
