Default Hobby King Cessna 180 with lights / floats

Hobby King used to sell a Cessna 180 with float kit ... small size of about 920mm span

It has lights in nose and wing tips, flaps etc ... also supplied with wheeled U/C for land use. Best described as a slightly smaller Skyartec Cessna !





I never had any luck getting this baby of the water. The floats would dig in and spray up into prop ... tried everything ... floats back .. fwd ... greater angle between floats and fuselage ... nothing worked.





On land it was nearly as bad ... it had a terrible habit of taking off and then having a mind of its own ... usually ending up with a nose into the dirt.

I'd like to know if ANYONE ever had any success with it ?

I've dug it out again for a possible rehash ..

Nigel
