Test mounting floats

I decided to try mounting my Teratorn Floats on my Akka. The tubes needs some fixing before I use them. But I wanted to make sure that the rigging was ok. I have heard that the rigging needs some reinforcement by adding a rear spreader bar. The floats are made of fiberglass and they are quite heavy. One day I will make new ones in wacumbagged carbon fiber and epoxy with divinycell ribs/walls.
Belite aircraft has made foam floats covered in carbon fiber… interesting. .
