Just wondering if anyone has done any hard 3D with the Heli Max floats installed?
I just put a full size set on a 550 Trex to fly over the water, landed in the water ok, took off in the water ok, did a flip and a roll in the air, Inverted was fine. I guess I'm wondering what the limits are?
I didn't find too much on YouTube.

Not sure, other than weight, reduced speed from drag. But their is one plus. If you crash it's not likely to sink.

Flew just like it did before I added the floats. All I had to do is add some weight to the tail to get perfect CG. The video has some hard 3D

Cool video!
They look like ducks settling in for a landing.
The float design is interesting too. All business.
