Hobby King AXN Floater Jet


Stumbled onto this offering and Iam interested in it due to the price (hate the shippping !) and the fact that it comes already brushless, otherwise I might upgrade a Harbor Freight WildHawk.

I'm thinking about starting a project for spring and summer with the Floater Jet adding floats, as my entire front yard is a 1/2 acre pond and I've always wanted to float mod a plane. The top mounted pusher motor has to be a plus.

Other than soliciting any comments on this plane, how about some feedback on what I should consider with a project like this ? Are most of you making foam floats from scratch ? How about placement and attachment issues and concern for CG ? Seems to me a slightly tail heavy situation would help keep the electronics from taking as many dunkings from takeoffs and landings.

Other than that I'm only in the thinking stage, since the planes are out of stock anyway.

Thanks for any and all comments.

BTW, I also should also ask if there is some other platform I should be considering, maybe the Cessna 182 or 206 setups instead.

Check out the Foam Kit forum, specifically the 2009 Easy Star thread. There is a video and comparison between the EZ and FLoater. I'll try to get you the link.
