I've seen the oroiginal prototypes fly and listened to Laddie help the new owner get it ready. Laddie also did the basic mistake that he warned people about.

Balancing is done with a full fuel tank since the motor is on the rear, so the logic is backwards from the usual procedure. Remember that you're adding a full tank of fuel to the plane, so you want the CofG to shiftr forward during flight to keep away from a tail-heavy condition -- caused prototype #1 to crash with a perfect tailslide -- that was his mistake when selling the plane.

Having a pound of lead in the nose doesn't surprise me -- mine took quite a bit to balance.

Have fund, it's one heck of a flying boat so take in a couple/three float flies this summer.

Re: Northstar from Aurora swap

If you can, come to our float fly June 12, 13 at the Christie Conservation Area park in Dundas. Info is in the MAAC magazine and on the MAAC web site.
Beside other planes, I will be flying my POLARIS.
