Ace went bust a while ago and I haven't found any trace of ARF versions still available. You can find the plan for the Ace Seamaster on Outerzone here. It looks like a pretty simple build. I built an Ace Puddle Master many years ago for electric which flew well off water and was really great fun. There was also a twin puddle master available too.

I think they've stopped making them so you might be lucky, I come across the Aqua star, 2 on ebay but I think there kits one in Germany and other Usa.

The Aquastar is a built up kit not an ARTF anyway and yes it is small. It has several design mistakes thrown in for free such as a downthrust and not enough free buoyancy in the forward hull which make water handling fun.

Here's mine, built with added ailerons, added buoyancy and upthrust. Flies great on a calm day only.
