    Floats for Seniorita

    I have a set of lightweight fiberglass floats that I believe would work with my Seniorita: They are 32" long and 4 1/2" wide on the bottom. They are made by P&B Model of Czech Republic which I bought through H.L. Very light weight and although the normal length should be around 33.5", I don't see why they wouldn't work as Senioritas are light anyway.
    Power is a Scorpion 3014-1080 on 3S pack...plenty of power so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Sounds like they would work to me.

    RE: Floats for Seniorita

    All the "rules" about float length are just guidelines.  Put the step of each float about 1/2" behind the balance point and (on a Kadet) make the bottom of the wing parallel to the flat top of the floats.  Having the nose of the float x distance in front of the propeller is beneficial if you're taxiing up to a dock, but not super critical for taxiing.  Hold full UP elevator when taxiing anyway.
