Osprey I


Description: Pint-size Pond Hopper!

Designed by Dave Robelen, the Osprey I micro-seaplane is a very smooth flyer that’s at home on the water. It tolerates up to 10mph breezes well and requires a minimum flying area of a baseball field. Though not difficult to fly, the construction and control techniques required to make and fly this model are more suited to modelers with some modest experience.
