Twinstar II Floatplane conversion completed

So it's all done and ready to go. Just need to get a decent day without howling winds and close to zero temps. It's killing me to just sit and look at it. I took the curtains off my wall yesterday firing it up.

The floats are GWS slow stick floats cut down, then capped at the rear. Silicone is the gap filler. I cut the holes for the wing support way to big and tried to fill the gap with gorilla glue. Suffice it to say it's held on tight.

Hope to get pics of it in the air, and video too.

This runs about 450-475 watts, the grey one is running about 350. this one weighs in a bit more but I should have plenty of power (fingers crossed)
