F30 Floats


Although originally designed for the AMF-S14, the F30 float design is adaptable to any amateur-built aircraft whose gross weight lies between 1000 - 1500 lbs.*  These floats have been installed on numerous AMF-S14, F11, seen here on a Christavia, and are currently being adapted for the Cub Major.  F30 floats are very clean aerodynamically.  The all wood construction is of spruce and plywood.  Exterior surfaces are well sanded with coarse garnet paper prior to being coated with fiberglass and HIPEC Top Coat.  All structure inside is thoroughly coated with HIPEC Clear, which is impervious to moisture, gasoline and micro-organisms.

Properly built and finished, F30 floats should withstand the severest abuse with a minimum of maintenance, even in seawater!  Small breaks in the floats due to rocks can easily be repaired with fiberglass cloth and HIPEC.  Additionally, the bottom third volume of the F30 float can be filled with closed cell plastic foam.

Each F30 float has nine waterproof compartments, each with its own access cover.  Fittings are simple and rugged.  Only one large water rudder need to be installed, although if two are preferred, this merely requires the fabrication of the necessary extra metal parts.  The weight of the floats, ready for installation is 160 -170 lbs with fittings.

PLANS FEATURES:

*       The plans are clear and complete,

*       Nearly all fittings are shown in full size,

*       All parts are reference numbered,

*       The installation drawing shows rigging of all struts and wires,

*       Installation to other aircraft would follow the same principles,

*       Details of water rudder control and retraction are shown,

*       A six page manual showing construction notes,

*       Sample weight and balance supplement,

*       Flight notes, and

*       Variations for aircraft of 1000 to 1800 lbs gross weight.*

Should the builder prefer to purchase the finished metal fittings from us, we would be pleased to make these to spec.  We can even supply fiberglass shells, eliminating the need for plywood on sides and bottom.  Construction is with fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin.
