Cool Paul.

I just hope my paint holds up longer than it took to paint the darn thing.

Float work is going well
I will most likely spray some clear under the Beaver fuselage so that the black paint desn't stick to my fingers and peel off.

Those floats look awesome. Mine's coming into the lhs friday. Can't wait to try her out. I'm going to run 2200mah packs in it. Any other battery size recommendations?

I will use also 2200 40c and I'm shure it will be fine.
2200 fit really nice and a bit bigger would fit too but why push the limit
I'm shure I will get a good 10 min of nice scale flying with the 2200 40c
