I will be waiting to see how it goes. Film it if you can mate.
I've been getting a bit of flight time in with other birds, havent had regular flying in like forever, weather gods and works demands have not been kind.
I've lost my uplink cable to my vid cam, but if all else fails, i'll get my gf to record on her mobile so at least there'll be something.
aiming for weekend after next

A shooting of filming shows some floats attached on it to stabilize the real one. Even the real one has less stability than have wing tip float, I love this so smart!
personally i'll not be looking at wing floats, when they touch the water with a little speed, they really do slew the plane around... at least that's my experience
If i persue take off on water, and find it difficult, i'll be looking at adding to the sponsons, and i dont think it would take much of a sponson addition to make it more acceptable
but i think it will be more so to fly off water with zero wind, and just to learn a little technique... if one can teach an old dog new tricks
