Flyzone DHC-2 Beaver Review
A legendary bush plane, the de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver is very well known among full-scale and RC enthusiasts alike for it’s rugged and stable nature. Kurt and Rob take Flyzone’s Select Scale DHC-2 Beaver for a splash at the local reservoir to see how it lives up to the prototype legend…

Summary

One of the most recent offerings in the Flyzone Select Scale series is the Flyzone DHC-2 Beaver. We watched it fly at the golf dome during the JR Indoor Fest by pro pilot Dan Landis but he could make a pizza box fly pattern, so that’s not a fair assessment (sorry Dan). We also watched the other video reviews and were still left unsatisfied, albeit entertained. We wanted to know the real scoop, with every little detail uncovered. What you’ll find inside is that the Beaver is deserving of every mark it gets and the marks are high.

Absolutely every aspect of the Beaver is discussed in our video review, so stop reading and start watching!
