I enjoy flying my F-22 so much I thought I'd love to have a "sea plane" with the same attributes. Of course the pontoons slow things down a bit. But this is a gas to play with on the water. Next I'll add a water rudder for extra surface control.

Hey AA another one of your cool water birds. A F22 on floats that's a first for me.

Thanks Joe! Wind is blowing too much lately, always nice when you get a plane up and ready and waiting for a first flight, now do I want to try the sea dart at the raptor first??!! By the way that raptor is the yardbird.com kit which is top notch.

AHHHH the seaplane sickness is strong with you my friend.:eek: It only gets worce ,i owned 9 seaplanes at one time and had floats for 90 percent of my land planes too. :D I hit around 15 AMA sanctioned big water funflys in the summer with around 40 to 60 other guys who attend. Lots of friends and fun. :D Hey Alf iam the second person flying my red and white sea cruiser in this video ,the camera put 20 pounds on me.lmao A person took off real tail heavy right after me and every one was yelling to land fast while it was getting ready to crash.lol joe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tExcCotOxfo

Alf looks good to me. As long as your cg is the same I bet she flies.
My F-22 was very forgiving!!
