Doug Dorton's new Hobby King Tundra bush plane with floats, he calls it a "flying ice chest" because the cabin is so large. It has a 90-degree down flap position to act as an airbrake on landing. It features easy magnetic hatch access fore and aft of the wing on top of the fuselage, but hard tires make bouncy landings.
