Default Float Flying Wingo

I just got floats for my Wingo and was wondering what kind of waterproofing is needed for the electronics? Any body out there got any suggestions?

Thanks,

Kent

Default Wingo Floatplane

I made a cokebottle canopy for the fuse, paint the inside black and it gives the Wingo a nice high tech look. Fill in the spaces around the servos and anywhere else with clear silicone. I fly a lot of glow floatplanes, but I like the Wingo the best, take it to a park pond, no noise and they're a real crowd pleaser. You do however need a gearbox and larger prop, they get on step a lot quicker. I use a 2.33:1 and 8X6 Graupner prop. Never had a problem with this set-up, like any floatplane, if you doink it in they'll get wet and need to be dried out.



Have Fun.

Freebird,

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I hope to try it out for the first time tomorrow.
