Parkzone Radian with Floats on the lake (1 min 20 sec)


Having ton of fun with Radian besides just catching it or grass landing.

Are those Horizon Hobby Cub floats? I bought a pair when I needed to get over $100 for free shipping. And thought about putting them on my Durafly Dynamic-s.

They are. I got them from our local hobby shop for $24.

I just Epoxied the rear bracket to the fuse and used the screws provided to secure the wire part of the bracket... front did not need any screws of the glue due to play it worked in the favor of the landing on the water without putting too much pressure of the fuselage as it's not the thick as is.

Nice. Thanks for posting. I was going to put them on the DS. But cutting into the foam may not work that well. I shattered the nose on this Sailplane when I looked down at my Tx momentarily, to check the timer. Or something stupid. That's all it took. I was too low, and lost the nose in the crash. It was bad. And now, the nose is shorter than it was. Soo, the canopy doesn't fit. I have jerry rigged it together so much, that I fear cutting a slice anywhere near the repair could cause major issues.

If you find a Durafly Dynamic-S fuse on line, please -- let me know... It is a very illusive part. Never in stock. And I fear, will be discontinued before any more parts are available...
