Just to add to the list of seaplanes, here are a few of my SIG LT-40 on scratch-built balsa/ply floats. Power is a LEO 0.46 2-stroke (a knock-off of the older OS 46SF) with an 11x6 prop. Flies really nicely, rises off still water with no trouble. Scale-like handling but it can still loop from a slight dive if the wind isn't too strong.

These were taken at the Kenora Ontario Float-Fly in June 2007. It was a fantastic day at the lake, and we even had some full-sized float planes passing overhead while we flew!

Those are float buoys and the plane in the picture is actually about 10 feet beyond them but but the 600 mm lens compresses distance. The cub actually did flip but was recovered not far offshore with no damage (see photo). It started and flew again that day.

Our local club, the Iowa City Aerohawks, recently had our second float fly for this season. Here are a few pictures of my cub with its new floats. It had the great planes glass floats before, and I was always fighting them no matter what I adjusted. These are the H9 floats, stripped, glassed and painted. It is a totally different seaplane now. It balances perfect, trims neutral in flight, taxis and lifts off exactly as one would hope.

Here is my newly completed Northstar. I built it according to the plans with all control surfaces on flexable rods and mounted an Evolution .52 NT.

JD Buddy,
I want to know how well your bird flies. I have a YouTube Video where my Northstar nearly slams into my neighbors pier. FOr a long time I refused to add all that nose weight. Flew great once I did and skimmed half way across the lake.

Hillville,

The Northstar flew great, but I did not use water. I left the landing gear off and just ran it across our grass flying feild on its belly. It used about 200 ft. but took off stright as an arrow. I have an Evloution .52 which gave it plenty of power. I was worried about the elvator being mushy, but it did a nice loop and I felt like I had control all the time. For the landings, I used the taller grass at the end of the runway. Next week I will try landing on the main strip (closely mowed grass).

The build was not that easy, but I love the plane.

John
