Doesn't look much bigger than an airvan.

Wonder if it is the pod underneath doing it too? This one I took a photo of down at Banyan's looks slightly less fat. :)

Looks about as fat as a Caravan with pod. The 4 bladed prop gives a badass look though :)

That's something you don't often see. A baby cargo master with a pod... The grands look a lot more elegant. As far as pregnant looking airplanes go.

Kodiak is a piece of shit on floats and worse on amphibs. Too expensive for what you get out of it.

Well, unless you have a shit load of cash and want to fly it around for fun...maybe sure go ahead. But don’t even consider it for commercial use unless superman himself is driving it.

Can’t offer any comment of it on wheels tho.

How many hours do you have in it on floats or amphibs?
