Goldberg Cub on Floats

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I purchased the Goldberg Super Float kit about 17 or 18 years ago with intentions to put them to use, I built the floats but never got around to using them. I quite flying in 1996 so all my gear was packed up and hauled around for a couple moves and pretty much remained in boxes. I decided to take up flying again last year ( not sure why it took so long) so things got unpacked and organized to some degree.

I decided a few weeks ago that I should finally put my floats to use and purchased a Goldberg Cub from the local hobby shop as the floats were designed for use with that particular plane. I got out the float instruction book to refresh my memory and noticed the front float struts I had installed were different than the ones required for the Cub. I had originally planned to install the floats on another type of plane and used a different front strut, don't recall where I got it from though.

Now I had the wrong front struts for the Cub and didn't recall if I still had the originals, which insert up inside the cabin on either side same as the landing gear. I looked in my storage boxes and couldn't find them which caused me some consternation after I finally had a plane to use them on and didn't have a key component.

I have a 4 star 120 box with a some of the pieces of the kit still in it waiting to be finished after a good number of years, so I took the box down from a shelf, opened it up and there were the original struts for the floats nestled amongst parts and pieces for the 4 star. Amazing how you forget what you did with things after a 15 or 16 years go by.

Anyway just have to get the cub built now and I'll be ready to go float flying after so many years have gone by.

Re: Goldberg Cub on Floats

Nice! Welcome back to the hobby! I'd like to setup my cub with floats, too. I'm currently building a 1/4-scale Balsa USA Cub.

Glad you found your parts! I've only been flying a few years and I still have issues finding stuff around my shop!
