So glad my drawings were helpful, but I am a minor player in this, Lee started this thread and gives credit to many in the first few posts.
I think your plan of 80% is a fine idea, but if you use the same motor, use a very shallow prop so you don't go so fast it flutters!

A quick photo of the replacement for my Capricorn. It is in the "GHOST VERSION" 😎 of the build. I hope it flys as well as the one it is replacing.

You know what they say; "if it looks good it will fly", and according to my eyes, you nailed it!

This was an original seaplane design variation. Original planes were bigger too. It is good to see that the design still has some interest.

I got to maiden my new Capricorn build yesterday. I think it flys better than the old one. Now it has some color tape decorations and I even installed lights for some night flying!

Very Nice!

You know that if it looks good, it flys good. So it should be no surprise that it flys better!

You earned it.

You might post an explanation to others on how to hook up LEDs, many enthusiasts may not be familiar with how little power they use when properly wired.
