This one's been around for ever, old dependable, sweet to fly. Sig Seniorita with Eflight 15. Yes those are the same floats that were on the glider! Just strapped them on it quick for a lark & they worked.

hi,maiden went ok,i flew this plane without floats and with floats was a totally differant thing,elevator was very unpredictable at differant speeds.
Quick vid. of my pal flying it,i was filming,maybe fit some thin plastic fins in the back of the floats to help keep it in a straight line on takeoff?

Very nice Bart. Is that a Sea Bee? Is it a kit or scratch built? I've had a soft spot for them ever since James Bond's 'Man with the golden gun'

Does anyone have any good tips on protecting the bottom of foam floats?, I am already noticing some wear. I was thinking about packing tape possibly or thinned out epoxy brushed on.
I've used packing tape and it works but it tends to come loose after awhile. The better solution, for me, is to use epoxy thinned with alcohol. One or two coats will give you a lightweight glass like surface. If you really want to bullet proof them use a layer of 1/2 oz glass cloth, too. I use the glass cloth/epoxy method for my foam float planes to prevent damage as I taxi up onto the sandy beach.
