Re: thunderbolt with floats

Looks interesting, can't really tell from the photo much about the plane except that it is colourful. Got any specs to on the plane, own design, from what plans, power setup? John
If I could fit in my plane I would

Re: thunderbolt with floats

You might want to add a sub-fin under the fuse. to increase the total fin and rudder area to more than 10% of the wing area. Failure to do so will probably result in a snap roll and a dive into the water. I do not want to talk about how I learned this!!
