My vote is for full wing. Especially if you are flying on floats

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

as Gary says but also do 2 separate wing servos and i always hated the joined elevator set up
i would look at 2 mini tail servos and a pull rudder
toss all the old pushrods
hv servos and a 2s lipo man thing would be cool light

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

The clipped wing will need a little more power. The full wing will need less power. When properly trimmed they both fly nice. Really think about using a 4" pitch propeller. This will give you a cruse speed of fourty to fourty five MPH. That is where this aircraft is designed to fly. Do not use too much power! A little note about the floats. All the corners on the bottom should be sharp. Rounded corners will make it stick to the water

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

pitch 4" translate into 30.3MPH so go with 5-6".I would go with full wing but then all I do is circuits on floats with that type of model.

4" pitch with a two stroke, 5" with a four stroke from my experience with all the diameter your engine will handle gives you lots of bottom end punch for water work.

I totally agree with 4*60, when I put the floats on, it's all about the water. Circuits and touch and goes all day! Sweet!
If I feel like doing aerobatics I take the floats off or pick a different plane. For the same reason I don't take skates to the swimming pool or flippers to play hockey but that's just me.

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

Pardon me Dennis at 11,000 RPM the theoretical speed is 41.6 MPH. this is a good RPM for a two stroke engine.

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

how did you calculate the engine RPM and the speed of the plane?

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

I had a clipped wing version (67.5") that I flew for 23 years (re-kitted it this summer) off wheels, floats and skis. It had a 2 stroke Enya 45 for most of it's life then a 4 stroke .65 . I never had any issues with lift or performance from the shorter wing even with a set of floats and a camera mounted on the top of the wing. I always wanted a full wing to try sail around with but never got around to it.
I had a single servo for the ailerons and a mechanical flapperon slide for flaps.
Loved that plane.....
Clipped is my vote!

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

What's the verdict Paul? Clipped or standard?
