No snow here yet. That is what happens with me when I go float flying. I don't really care about the flying. I enjoy the long takeoffs, landings and skimming across the water.

This is Mike and the Mako is all John's design. I did test fly early prototypes for John and Greg and offered a few very minor suggestions but John did all the work.

Hi Ive only just found this design, which appeals to my taste in models, and Ive not read through the thread,,
but has anyone made this with a KFm4 section and left out the CF spars... KF'ing the wing will make for a cheaper build and make a good strong wing..
And being a KF fanatic with winter snows coming. I have just put this at the top of my building list...KF'd of course..

Newbie to this forum and have recently finished Mako from plans on the site. Fantastic plane, really fun to fly.
Question: is there a possibility that someone with suitable knowledge will make a download for the Mako available for Real Flight V6?

Looks like fun rcrich. We're getting pretty close to getting our first snow here in west Michigan so it won't be long and we'll be doing the same thing.

It was a quick flight in the morning before I left for work. The snow was calling me! HAHA.
I get that same urge any time I pass a body of water that is calm and looks like glass.

You sound like me and one of my other flying buddies Dale. We are always on the look out for new and interesting float flying sites. We get a kick out of the challenge of flying from strange locations.
