I tried grooves along the length and 1 each outer edge diagonaly connected to thoes but no such luck in the 2nd video.

"TENTION" that's the word I was looking for! I'm gonna try and find the rough volume of the parts of the floats that are in the water then I'll work out how to keep the same amount of volume but make them more boat shaped, S107 was able to lift all but the last mm of float out of the water so if they taper to a point like a boat then there should be a decrease in tention the higher out of the water it gets.....

I just had a vision of makin the floats getting it in the bath again, giving it full throttle then rocketing straight up into the ceiling and splashing down rotors first! We shall see.
