Maiden Float Flight Video
You have probably seen Float videos before, But this one is different. Focus was on Take offs and Landings .... a total of 6 each
.... rather than Acro flight. In this maiden Float video I flew thru 2 battery packs. Each was a 3s2p total 4200 mAh set up. Flight times were about 6-7 minutes each pack with 3/4 to WOT throttle settings. Floats added an additional 25 oz to the plane. The AUW with floats was 89oz. Fixed gear flying had been with a 10x7 prop at 297 watts, but Floats needed more. So I switched to an APCe 12x6 prop and a total of over 350 watts. Can get still more power with a wood 12x8. That would actually be better... maybe next time. With the 12x6 still not really enough power for Loops or anything. Tried a loop and got a quarter thru it and bailed out. Afraid it was not going to make it.
If you like Float Flight, this is a great video .... Landing number 1 is PRICELESS
