When it comes to big bush planes, the classic grand daddy of them all is the de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver. This amazing outback workhorse is one of the very important “Air Trucks” used to bring supplies into the furthest reaches of the rugged wildness that is Alaska. Check out this video showing the biggest RC Beaver we’ve ever seen. And what’s more, it made entirely our of aluminum and has over 21,000 rivets making its construction absolutely scale. With a powerful Moki 400cc radial engine in the nose, it even sounds like the real thing! It even has optional floats also made from sheet aluminum.

Wow, it’s gorgeous. Congratulations. And happy flights.
Cool video, why does he have to fly flaps down all the time???
Now THAT’S what I’m talking about! Spectacular!
Stunning in every respect. A real pleasure to watch.
Wish them many many safe landings and years of flying
That’s awesome. I’m just eager to get my old parkzone Beaver back into the air again. Those are great planes whether mini or the real thing. This you showed is as close as you can get and not be real! Thanks!
