Need honest feedback about GWS floats on an E-starter
I have a large field outside my house, about 23 acres to fly in, however i have no suitable landing site for gear, and belly landing seems to be a bit hard on the plane sometimes.
However i have about a 3 acre lake here and am considering adding floats to my plane for takeoff/landings.
How much do they affect flight? How much do they add to wieght? Do i need to upgrade from my NIMH/400D power setup to make it still perform well with the floats?

I hear the GWS floats are heavy. I got my 19" floats at foamfloats.com, and they are just under 1 Oz.
The biggest thing I see in flight is a "pendulum" effect; a tendency for the plane to want to "rock" back to level and overshot, then swing back. Not much, tho. Just try to fly a little more gingerly.
