Even with the longer wing on the "Float Kadet", there just isn't enough span for flaps. The span is only 54" while the "Trike Kadet" is a bit over 48", both measurements being with the stock dihedral. That said, I'm also looking at a slightly longer horizontal stab as well to give it and the elevators a bit more authority when needed due to the weight and drag of the floats
