    This PBY Catalina Blue now includes Tomcat Skylord 30 Amp ESCs with XT60 connectors, LED lights with pre-soldered connector ends and a LED light controller for static and flashing operations.

    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.

    Months of flight testing and design from Dynam yield an aircraft that is very stable and capable of maintaining flight at slow speeds that allow novices to master flight mechanics with ease. High quality scale detail and a nice large 1.4m wingspan make this an attention-grabbing model. Made from a high strength EPO-foam for added durability. Powered by twin 1100KV electric brushless motors, all you need is a 4 channel radio, 4 channel receiver and 3S 11.1V 2200-3000 mAh Li-Po battery and you're ready for water-based sorties and patrols!

    Surprised that there wasn't a thread for this one already. Just ordered a gray PNP for my wife this weekend. Went to a local float fly two weeks ago and she's jazzed about flying from a liquid runway. Plus her Dad worked on PBYs during WWII.

        My wife didn't think she would like it either. I picked up a HZ Champ for her and she was hooked.

          Does anyone know the background history on the blue Catalina livery scheme?


          i am guessing it’s a much later paint scheme.

          I like the early WW2 period correct grey but as a newb flyer the bright yellow visibility paint makes sense. I am going to buy a hobby king albatross when that comes available so a modern paint scheme will be in the hanger someday.

            Hi Steelon Steel, welcome to Hobby Squawk! Dynam's Catalina wears the markings of 08-924, registration 44-33924. The aircraft was based in California in June 1948, so you're right, it's a post-war livery.

            Interestingly, this aircraft wasn't built by Consolidated, but rather by Vickers.

                I love the "Black Cat" version I have here. Looks really cool doing knife edge and surprisingly not too much foam gatoring. Eventually it did get some. I also fly the RCAF Canso Rescue version that operated in Nova Scotia, Canada...I'm grounded until late August due to upcoming eye procedure....Love the PBY, but, I wish it could be a wee bit bigger. Say, 1800mm....
