I'm done.
Thanks for those links, the pictures answer a lot of questions for me. I think the lines going from the wings to the floats are unnecessary, but they maight actually be there to help pull the floats up off the water.

Yep, that would be me. Hey question for you guys, Tower sends the "anylink" for free, but I may not wanna use it, how easy will it be to just install my extra Ar600 Spektrum reciever in this bird?

It's extremely easy. The RX is just laying loose in the bottom of the fuse. It was the first thing I did when I got my Beaver. One thing I noticed, though, was that I had to reverse every channel except for the throttle.

Just picked up my beaver from SN, which prompted me to fix another plane first. Now ready to unbox. Nothing like a new plane to motivate me to work on even another model before getting to the new one lol.

That pic still doesn't show what the loops are by the rudders. Argh. LOL
Check out the manufacturer's product web page.
Has some close up pics of the loops

I still don't see what the loops are for though. A 1/4" inside of the loop is a catch for the rubber band. The loop serves no purpose that I can find.

All foam. The inside edge does have a hard plastic runner to reduce splashing on the prop though.

Maybe the loops are to tie it up at the dock. LOL
