1800 Ranger floats

I saw that HH finally had the floats for the 1800 ranger and ordered them.

What I received was the floats for the SuperEZ 1220 with a change of part number of FLT004 (EZ1220) to FLT 009 (1800 Ranger).

The SuperEZ floats are way too short for the 1800 Ranger. Bait and switch?

What floats belong with the Ranger?

From Horizon Hobby. FMS stands by their decision of using the floats for the Super EZ, a much smaller model, as the floats for the 1800 Ranger.

Good luck taking off with a lot of down thrust, float tips behind the propeller arc, sitting low in the water (added drag). The leverage is there for a tip over on take off.
