Re: citabria on floats

Didn't use any additional rear fin area on my Bud Nosen 1/4 scale citabria and it flew great on floats. Actually better on floats than on wheels ! If the rigging and setup is not done correctly on the model ; that could have been the problem. ie fuse centered correctly between the floats , C og G at or slightly ahead of the step ( 1/4 to 1/2 inch max) 2 degrees positive incidence -- the wing to float tops ;for a few. What applies to full size aircraft may not always apply to models as a lot of rc designers cheat a bit when doing a model up.

Anyways just my nickel .
