Very nice. Watching the videos looks like maybe some outriggers at the wing tips might be a good idea.

Outriggers were a consideration. In this case I left them off for the sake of simplicity. It does not hurt the plane if the wing touches. Also with the wide wing tip on the water it reduces a flip over better than a narrow outrigger. We did hope that the extended sides of the float would help but when they were bigger they just sprayed the prop with water when turning.

You can gang up several graphics on one sheet. Many graphics can be had by going to google and searching for the design you want to find. ( http://images.google.com/ ) I have some that I have scanned then used Photoshop Elements to perfect it before inserting into the document. I would be happy to share them with you or anyone else wanting them.
Thanks I have to stop by office supply store and see if they carry the 3M ink jet film. Is the Loctite spray chemically different than 3M Super 77. I'm sure I'll have to order the Loctite adhesive do you know a supplier off hand? Thank for the offer to share your work I would very much appreciate access to your custom design work. Thanks

It may or may not be the first Swedish EzFly, but it looks to very nice. I am sure you will enjoy flying it. As a beginner, post any questions you may have here. One of the experienced builders and flyers will certainly answer your questions.

Mike,

I'm quickly running out of foam trying to duplicate ( without any sucess ) the design. Do you have any idea how close the plans are to the top, of your " To Do List "

I have just received a sh*t load of thin, chrome maylar, and I am itching to drap it all over my first P51. It will be a fantastic looker. )

Thank you Mike, for the time you will take, to address my concerns.

Best regards
Uncle Bob

It looks like it might be a couple weeks on the plans. I have a show I have to get ready for and I am real behind.
When I get back I can get to them.
