my new float plane

just wanted to share some pics of a float plane i built today.This is the second foam plane that i have built and the first one to take to the air, the first was a wing that i am still wanting on some props to come in for. The float plane isnt finished i still have to put some pontoons out on the wing. It was dark when i finished it up but i couldn't stand it I ave a couple of flood lites so i turned them on and gave it a toss. It took to the air quite nice made a couple of circles then set it down before my luck run out. cant want for the morning maybe the wind will be down and i can give it a real go.

let me know what you think thanks Mike

well thank you but i hate to say that it looked better then it flew. I dont know what it was but there was a major design flaw. It's life was short ended by a nose in. I could have rebuilt it but decided not to at this time and went on to other plane's.

ill build one by sight if the plans don"t come up, or you could give a quite detailed description
either would be nice (wingspan, prop size, length, and tail dimensions)

wish I could help with plans but there arent any. I never have used planes just kinda make it up as I go. I would be glad to get you some measurements. It didn't fly very good but that was because it was tail heavy. If you stretched the nose out about 1" maybe 2" it would have salved that. I will get the numbers tomorrow.
