The super cub is back in action on the lake. The first pic shows the cub about to lift off the water and the second is a shot of final.

You have to love the Cubs. Here is my Goldberg Cub. It's covered with Nelson fabric. It's got a Saito .72 up front for power. The floats are balsa sheeted foam floats made by Ralph Smith from Plane Fun Floats.
I flew it for two years without the sub fin. I made one and put it on to see if it would make a difference. I saw very little change. Now the sub fin has warped since I put it away in November. I'm just going tp pull it off and do with out one.
The pictures of the Cub were taken at the Firelands Float Fly in New London, Ohio.

Here are a few more pics of the float planes.
I have the cousin tot he Ready on Floats. It's their version of a D.H. Beaver. Flies with a Mecoa .46 up front.
Then the Great Planes Cub. 90 inch wing. I also have the clipped wing and fly that one when the plane is on wheels. It's got an O.S. 91 four stroke on it.
Last is my replacement for my Gee Bee Sea Hawk. The original had close to 350 flights, all on floats and was pretty tired. Water was getting to the wing and horizontal stab and they were getting soft. Rather than trying to rebuild that one I got out the patterns I made from the original and made anew one. The engine is in pieces waiting for a new set of bearings. I've been flying it with an older OS .32 heli engine.

There you go...three more of my float planes.

Canadair CL-415 Super Scooper (Fly Model)

Just maidened it today (off of snow) and flew fantastic. Takeoff and climb out at 1/2 throttle, not bad for a 18.5# plane. Can't wait to fly it off the water this summer.

Nice plane but i noticed you used 4 bladed props like i did on my short solent .If they were Apc 4 bladed ones like mine it took me 3 hour of sanding /cutting to get them balanced . They were all off in the same spot so it is a problem in their mold. I sent them a email about them but they never replyed back i guess after they got my money its all good with them. joe

They are APC props. I painted mine with 3 coats of paint, a primer, then yellow, and finally black. After painting them I checked the balance and on both of them I only found 1 blade that needed a small amount sanded off to get the prop balanced. Maybe it was the paint I applied and I just got lucky and it helped balance it out or APC changed something.

Maybe they took my email to heart and fixed it but myself and neons had the same issue and i dont think any paint would have helped. lol joe
