There is a RCU forum dedicated to seaplanes, where you will find references to websites and much good information posted by other modelers:

This website is excellent:

Hangar 9 1/4 scale Cub is an awesome plane on floats. Easy swap from wheels to floats, flies very well with them, and looks 'right' (especially with a 4 stroke twin )

You need one of these.



Looks like a hydrofoil, and is, but has enough lift to also fly.
