Definitely need some type of pontoon out at each wing tip just to keep the tips out of the water. Might want something to hold the tail off the water a bit too.

To be completely honest, I really don't know. I haven't tried.

GWS makes some foam floats that look to be the right size for this.

No, it was his plane. We were flying it by a lake, and he got the plane into a dive. He panicked, and gave me the controls too late. I had just got the radio in my hands, and SPLASH!!! Of course it was my fault, since i was at the controls when it went in. We're still good friends.

Great Mods - I'd love to see more detail on forming the canopy

Can you point to a thread that discusses how to form the canopy as you did?
It looks great. Great job.


Now add your flaps or spoilerons (like Dave Powers) and she'll kick.

Thanks.
