floats

Super Cub Floats. I added the extra mount on the rear ( counter sink it ) and add plastic to the front a GWS mount.

The front wire of the float will go just in front of the hump we land on .
I took a dremal and cut it out ( just a grove ) then glued in extra pastic from
a GWS mount. The rear mount comes with the floats, I counter sunk it a little
but you want the floats up a little in the front. When you take off on grass you have to hold a lot of up till she lifts off.
