Had the Mako Sea Plane out, it's fun but it is a handful in the wind, Can't wait to see if I can dump it in the water.

did any of you guys reinforce the tail verticals on the bottom where they drag on the ground briefly? Mine is done..now time to add some "slidey" stuff to the sponsons and that area if needed...

I didn't , I did glue a thin plastic layer to the bottom of the pontoons and then a layer of wing tape.

All right Dan ... welcome to the sea plane thread.  Dewd it's about time you built this one too.

I'm still trying to come up with a clever paint scheme for mine after Jeff already did an outstanding job on his flames look.

It does fly a little light so prepare yourself accordingly.  A good gust or cross wind will knock you around.
Fly like your mad at it.

Yes the wind does throw you around pretty easy, that's why I switched to 4S so I have some umph to battle with 🙂 . 

Tom, paint your fancy flames, I know they will not compare and I will just hide mine so not to be embarrassed. 😃

I did that. I bought a $1 plastic 3ring binder at wally world and used the plastic to cover the skids and a thin strip where u did. 

Its done.

I have 3 rolls of colored thin tape ive used on my planes forever...so just did that again lol.

Couple pics of finishing up the build...
