Default Want to add floats to a Kangke Monocoupe 90A, .60 size.

I am preparing to convert a Kangke Monocoupe .60, to floats. The model weighs about 11 3/4 lbs in land plane configuration. W/S is 77", and length of fuse, from prop to stab hingeline, is 47". The C/G is 11 1/2" - 12" behind prop. Which float set would you recommend for this model? Any special set-up info I might need. The plane is E/P and flys just fine as a land plane, however I recently moved, and have a beautiful lake nearby, to fly off of.
Would appreciate and advise that will help prevent a failure.

Shouldn't be anything special for that airframe,, any floats in the 34"-36" range should work fine,,

I'd look up the threads on Corrosion-X since you're going EP, it's worth doing

good luck

p.s.

I have a set of 36" floats that will work for you... I got them as a raffle prize a couple years ago,, but I just don't fly planes in that size range.

They are Ralph's sheeted foam core, very light weight, http://planefunfloats.com/

LMK if you're interested
