Hi erazz, that is a great achievement, would love to see some footage. How did you slow her down for the taxiing ,did you use crow braking on water rudders or some other cunning device, or was it not a problem, cheers Tim
I thought it would be but it really wasn't a problem. It taxies just a little faster than the prop planes. This really isn't an issue since you don't need to slow for takeoff and stopping happens once you beach it.
I also removed the flaps since the extra drag slows it nicely. I'll be adding fins underneath the booms to improve spiral stability too.
This is turning out to be such a good idea that I'm removing all the fixtures for the original u/c. I'm keeping this one as a float plane.
