I did an electric conversion on my towertrainer60, and added these floats to it. the finish of the floats is very nice, but the blue bottom of one of the floats, the paint was bubbled(as in TIINY bubbles that u can only feel by moving your hand across it, but nothing a 2000grit sandpaper cant fix :D. I did 2 modification to the floats: first- I had to add splash guards made out of a plastic sheet thing to block water from splashing into my prop but that's because the plane I have is very low to the floats, yours might not be. second- and I really recommend this- I added cross bracing to the struts, they are made from ~2mm piano wire, and I made 4 of them making an actual cross. they are glued on with epoxy since u cant really solder aluminum :P. overall the floats are very nice with molded grooves to improve handling, but the water rudder included is quite small. but the floats r still worth the price.

I got determination of the damaged float that was sent to me. It was an APPOLOGY, and a $5.00 Store Credit!!!...What a kick in the ass from a company that I have done business with for a very long time.
I paid $45.00 for the Floats, and $50.00 for Shipping costs to get the floats here in the U.S.A..... I don't think I can adapt my DHC2 Beaver to fly with ONE float?????
That WAS my LAST ORDER with your fine Company Hobby King!
You can SHOVE your $5.00 Store Credit!...Oh, I forgot to mention that the overall construction of these floats is very good.
Also, I paid MORE for shipping to the U.S.A., than the cost of the floats themselves!!!
I think I will now deal ONLY with AMERICAN Hobby Suppliers!....
Have never had any problems like this with them!.....I ordered these floats for my H.K. DCH2 Beaver. It took almost 3 weeks to get to the United States.
I expected there to be damage to the box due to their size. The box was in perfect condition, as was the inner box with the packing, bubble wrap, and air cells.
However, when I pulled the floats out, one had a 1 1/2 inch CRACK on it. Now, the way these floats were placed in the carton tells me that the float was damaged BEFORE shipping! There is no way that float got damaged during it's trip to the U.S.A.!
I have sent a total of 22 photos of the box, the floats and how they were packed. Still no determination on behalf of Hobby King! Hobby King obviously has a Quality Control issue in Hong Kong. IF, these would have been looked at before shipping, I would not be having this issue with Hobby King!
Oh, by the way, this was my 36th order with them, and it WILL be my last!....F.Y.I.
Has anyone else had damage issues like this with Hobby King???
These are great 38" floats. The shape is perfect and the tracking streaks are moulded right in. Quite light for its quality. Excellent fibreglass work and great paint finish. I mounted it on a Hobbico Hobbistar with 71" wingsspan with great success - the supplied mounting hardware is a great help - check the video box to see it in action.Excelente produto, instalei em um Arrow 46 Hangar 9 e ficou muito bom, o segredo esta no Cg, respeitando o manual no tem como errar.
