Anyone try it yet? I searched the forums and nothing came up.

It looks like an excellent candidate for floats. There is only one of these flying at my club, so far, and it is stable enough that the new pilot earned his solo "A Wings" very quickly with it. I don't know if there are any "off the shelf" floats that are the right size, but floats are very easy to make, so that's not really an issue. I got to fly the model, as one of the instructors, and it has loads of power to handle water take offs, enough wing to carry the weight, and no nasty flying habits, so I say "Go for it".

Thanks, BradT.I'll have to work on it and see what I can do. My club is having a float fly late in October. Maybe I can put something together and test it out by then.

My first idea was putting floats on my PZ Corsair...:D

There is a set of floats for the E-flite Apprentice available at the seaplanesupply website.
