Toledo on Floats
Rather than just adding these pics to my Toledo Special Blog I decided to create a new one just for the floats since I have 20 some pics.
Today was my first time flying off water. I was very nervous about it since I didn't have a boat handy and it is January, but it was really not very hard at all. I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting, but the plane flew pretty much the same as normal, takeoffs were easy, landings might have been slightly more technical than normal, but only because a bounce on the runway isn't a big deal but a bounce on water can cause you to nose over.
All in all, I LOVED flying from water, I will be doing this a lot. I'm about to order floats for my Taylorcraft and I may one day put some floats on the 1/4 scale Monocoupe, but that remains to be seen, the 'Coupe may not have enough power (120 some watts per pound on wheels).
Specs for the Toledo are in it's blog entry. Now enjoy the pics.
EDIT: Video from 2/22/2011

2/22 was my second time out at the lake. A buddy took a bunch of additional pics. I guess I'll add them.
The video in the first post is from 2/22 as well. I put it in the 1st post since it's more visible.
