    Looking for advice on picking a plane.

    Guys, I'm thinking about getting a seaplane. I really enjoy big slow planes. I'm trying to pick between the Dynam Catalina and the Durafly Sky Mule with this mod. I have no experience with seaplanes. I'm just looking for a little insight and if you guys have any other recommendations.
