The Seabee was introduced just after WW2 with over 1000 examples built. Not the most common sea plane built. Most may know it from 1974’s 007 Man with the Golden Gun. James Bond fly’s a Seabee in south east Asia to Scaramanga’s hide out on a Island. N87545 S/N 105.
While working on Engine component designs for FlyCorvair, one of the guys name Gus had a Seabee restoration project going, it was very interesting to see the construction of this aircraft in its disassembled state.
Quite a few YouTube videos of this aircraft can be found, here are a few captivating ones;
For RC options, Outerzone has 4 plans listed but the 1977 from RCM is likely the best:
The Jetson One Manned Multi Rotor (X8 configuration) looks like one of the more likely multi rotors to go mainstream in the new market of manned aviation. Electric flight propulsion favors smaller & lighter platforms. Each new jump in battery technology will only make it better.

They also work well on removing old peel ply from composite surfaces
The long metal handle gives extra leverage when trying to remove difficult things

The One Design was created to make a high performance acrobatic aircraft on a low budget. It was designed to get the most out of a O-360 Lycoming motor. The Wiki page has a brief overview of the aircraft at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rihn_DR-107_One_Design
YouTube has a bunch of videos on this aircraft, here are a few
This video has a real good 3D cad overview of the structure
Quite the interesting article on the history of many airports in the Denver area that are no longer there. Growing up in the area it’s impressive to see the rich aviation history. Most of the airports in the article have been take over by urban development.
Back in the early 2000’s I got to do Acrobatic Training in a Super Decathlon at KPRC Prescott AZ. This aircraft is one of the best entries into Acrobatics & Tail Wheels, gaining more confidence and capability as a pilot.
The Decathlon started Production in 1972 and is a derivative of a Citabria.
Prices range from 50 to over 200K depending on year, condition etc.
From what I have found there are no available Plans, Kits or Downloads for the GP-4, however with modern tech like 3d scanning iPhones, Powerful Cad Software and 3D printers it would not be too difficult to create a RC version of this impressive Aircraft.
