Aussie freezing in Holland

Problem is float attachment


The floats can move in all directions. Only 1 screw. Floats can move back and forth and sideways.
Solution is to bend up another 2 aluminium strit's. Make them 50mm overall wider and bend the ends flat . Drill 2 hole's, cut the upright plastic off the floats and mount with 2 screws on top of floats .
Or
Make a wider set of struts and add a cross bar to stabilise the floats.
Weight is 100grams
Other floats 200 grams.
Better to save weight and use these with a better attached strut.
I will cut down tundra floats and make new struts similar to standard.
Only add 50gram or less. Or use standard floats with better stronger wider struts.
The grey paar are perfect but 100grams too heavy.

Received and flown today. Good looking and excellent flyer. I will use it on solid grounds only ... however, because of the rather bad condition of our grass runway, I will replace the small wheels by bigger ones.

Like to hear more from you.

Kind regards,
Robert R.

Check motor mount screws and be careful of the rudder and front wheel servo connection. They weren't as tight as they should have been.
Hoping to maiden on wheels this week.

Great ground plane. 5min flight time


Front steering is a bit wobbly for and aft.
But....
All in all a top little plane to fly.
I have full throws on everything.
Flaperons work fine.
Rudder servo changed to 2 connectors and the main rudder moved to the end of the servo giving great rudder authority in the air and on the water.
Next job is to get a 2200 3s into the cockpit to give a bit more weight in the wind and longer flight time and make the floats better.

New float struts


Bending up the new float struts.
A bit wider. Same height.
Drill 2 holes and screw down onto floats.
Use servo screws with a flat head.
Total weight added. 36grams. Double the original struts

Just my 2 cents:

I have mounted bigger wheels. Nose 45mm:dia16mm(was 37x13mm) Main gear: 64dia.x 24mm( was 44x15mm). Now take-off and landing is no longer a problem.

Weight w/o battery is: 780 gms, 3S1300mAh battery 115 gms, total: 895 gms (Amazing because less than advertised)

Amps draw in flight: abt. 7.7 Amps. Power to spare!

Just watch the nose wheel assembly. Mine was wobbly on the engine firewall so I added some some hotglue.

I'm on the edge of ordering this model.
Does it look like a 2200 would fit in this plane?

Yes ..but CG ? Cant get it back far enough because of the wing spar might need weight at back?
My next job is to cut a hole between the seats for a 22003s and put a fpv camera in

Is the plane significantly nose heavy with the 2200?

Which battery are you using? Did you measure Amps draw at 3 cells?

Thank you.

The 12min was on the HK site.
