i haven't seen any actual plans for floats but if you go to this site and follow the construction link at the top, on the next page near the bottom on the left you will see a link to a float size calculator and a link to another page with info on floats.

Hope this helps

There are many threads on SPAD floats. Go to and go to downloads, I just put some float stuff up there for you. I cannot remember who I got them from , so I can't give him the credit, just know it wasn't me. I have started a set like in the drawing. There has been some problems keeping them watertight, without driving the wieght up. If you cut a set out of foam, put a peice of ply or something along the top for strength and then cover the whole thing with sign vinyl, you will have a very nice set of SPAD floats that will not leak, look good, and are easy to build.

Hope this helps.

SPADs are God's way of showing us that life is too short, and the ground is too hard, to be building balsa airplanes.......
