  • Large Spruce Goose

    I’ve seen some videos of a 12 foot Spruce Goose and would love if Motion RC could come out with some larger seaplanes.

            OMG are you kidding me, a MARS would be mind-bending especially in a larger size. This plane was just incredible - unfortunately recently retired, but it was at Oshkosh a few years ago.. There are lots of videos on YT, here are a couple of fun shots.

            This is long video but start at the 4 minute mark for an incredible slo-mo landing.

            And this one will just about make you mess your pants, if you play it on a big screen with the sound on!!

              I had the chance to see it fly at Oshkosh, and would definitely love to see the beast in RC! Both a Mars and a Seamaster would both be must-haves to me!

                That would be pretty mind-bending. More seaplanes are needed in general!

                  Please do the Mars! Certainly make it big enough and light enough so it has a chance to fly slow enough. The water drop feature would be a great plus. But maybe smart to let all of the engineers out here figure that one out. That way it would keep the price down. Yeah, a big Mars would be sooo cool!

                    If you want to add a real water drop then the model would need to be very large (water is heavy) - so a MARS would be perfect for that.
