Well, picking a plane is such a personal decision,, a often modelled 1/4 scale Cub would fit that engine nicely I would think

good luck

We can't answer that question without knowing what kind of flying you like to do. Trainer, scale flight, mild aerobatics, pattern, 3D, racing?

The FG 36 is roughly equivilent to a 1.20 two stroke or 1.50/1.80 four stroke glow and there are plenty of choices for those engines in each of the catagories above.

Pick one you like, but make sure to get enough wing area to carry the extra weight.

Jim

Edit: You can put almost any airplane on floats, so don't limit yourself to the usual sea/float plane designs.

The 120-size Seamaster or Mariner, if you can find one. The Mariner is better. If you find plans for the Seamaster 120 you can take a lot of weight out while still adding strength. It was not super well designed. Heavy without being strong.

If it were mine, I'd put it in a 1/4 scale cub - it will take the weight (I had a G-38 in mine..)
