Default What size floats for E-F Super Cub 25e??

Has anyone put floats on an E-Flite Super Cub 25e ARF? I would like info on what size is a good match and what are best sources to find a pair for sale.

Thanks, Phil

use floats 75-80% of ( i don't know why) the distance from the face of the prop washer to the rudder hinge line. In your case: 42 inches.
Two place to get floats: Planefun floats and Seaplane supply. These are foam-core floats. Light, durable, efficient. Can't leak. Light. Don't weigh a lot either.
Plywood float kits weigh as much as your fuselage. Don't use those.
