I have a 7X6 on it, it pulls it through the air nicely.

Michael, sorry for the late reaction. Here is a pic of the floats. I am working on a velcro removable float mount. Will post it when it works.

I almost lost my Trottel today when it went downstream after a bad landing with noseover. Velcro Mount is not reliable so far. Needs additional rubber bands.

I turned the Trottel upside down, grew it to 1 metre span, gave it a symmetrical hoĺlow depron wing , a bit dihedral and FunCub wheels.
I love the result! An aerobatic Agplane!

I built the kungfu recently and it's immediately one of my favorite planes.

This trottel looks great as well, subscribed to the youtube channel for magazine.
