Don,
I just got out the old tape measure and checked the "real" length of the Escapade fuselage. I know the manual states a 45" length, but I measured 38.5" from the back of the prop to the hinge line on the rudder. That was always the measurement I was told to take the 75% value from. Theoretical "perfect" length should be 28-7/8". This makes the 28" length of the Horizon floats a little more workable. Thanks for making me check though, because I feel a lot better about the choice.
