Setting it up for adjustability was key for me when putting floats on my slow stick. Once I was happy with it I made thigs a little more permanent. As for flying - no wind at first, doing slow then high speed taxis to get use to the floats and going and off step. I ended up putting a water rudder on one float because I was burning up my batteries trying to taxi in the wind. With the floats it doesn't lime to taxi against the wind. Have a boat ready to go. Waterproof esc, receiver with corrosion x. Don't do the servos unless they are metal geared. I found the gears have the potential to swell a little from the oil. I made my floats out of pink foam. Show us some pictures as you go.
Just wondering if there is any recent updates on this plane?? I am looking for an e-plane to put on floats. I am wanting to use a 3015 1400 Kv motor that I need to replace broken drive shaft. I usually make my own foam/fiberglassed floats and plan on continuing this practice. Thanks, FF
Subscribed....Just wondering if ya ever got around to putting floats on. I am wanting to do same thing on same plane. I have been searching and looking at diff floats and had question about removal and placing battery conflicts.
lil' old thread i know....but figuring putting floats on a plane might make it rain! and it looks like something I want to do with spring just around the corner..... One 10acre pond left and only about 1acre of water surface left!!
