Default Top Flite Elder 20 on floats

My father built this Elder 20 back in 1989, but never flew it. He passed in 1995. In 2000, I came across the float kit for it, so I built the floats and converted it to fly off water. Itís powered by a Magnum .30 FMS and is 3 channel. Itís an absolute blast to fly and shoot splash and goís. I am always saying ďthanks DadĒ when I fly it!!!

this is only the 3rd one I have seen !!!! I came across the float kit on eBay. I did not know that Top Flite had even made floats for it.
