Default Thanks for the floats Ralph,,, Planefunfloats

Two weeks ago at the Midwest Regional Float Fly I won a set of Ralph's Floats,,, Been kicking around what airframe to set them up with. Since I've come to consider The Smith brothers and the rest of the Monroe crew friends I couldn't very well turn around and sell such a nice prize,,, so,,,

After going back and forth on a Cub, Beaver, and a slew of military birds I settled on a Value Hobby Cessna 182.

Placed the order today, will get the 30% Yak finished up this week and have a clear bench for the 182 when it shows.

Going with a EP set up just for the fun of it. and do a build thread/review

Thanks again

Wife spotting for me,, good times

You are welcome Tom and I was happy to see the floats go to someone who would put them to good use. I was happy to see the Kingfisher back in the air both at New London and Brighton. I'm presently working on a Polaris ( when I can get away from making floats ) .
