I'll start. This is my Hangar 9 Alpha 40 on Aircore Explorer Floats. It is my first and hopefully not the last float plane. It's got a evolution .45 engine with a 10x6 prop.

My uncle has been out of the hobby for over a decade, and decided to return with a Lanier Mariner. The ringed ST engine hand-started easily during run-in, but became a bit balky when the water was in sight.

Throws were too high, trims were off, sun was glaring, but it came back in one piece under its own power. :cool:

(no wood ticks were harmed during filming, unfortunately)

Celi, I like your birds! For some reason your junkyard reminded me of 20,000 leagues under the sea when I saw the build photo's! Very cool build.

Add a saw to the fuse and some bubble windows!:D

How about flying boats ?, (not always classed as 'float' planes).

Scratch built Sunderland, 90" span, Depron foam, electric powered.
