Hello Martin

I have recently purchased a CH701 on  3 wheel amphibs.

I am in the process of transferring from Floats to Wheels  and I am looking for any hints that you may have.

Additionally that float I have are Electrically actuated and as such I am interested in the Pump that you have/ Had

Regards,  Ian Taylor

I took video but it turned out not very good (my finger was it) so I deleted it - this is the only picture that left from the river. Thanks again for the ride.

Martin - I bought the bearing with McMaster Carr and it is a 3/4" size. I really like the no slots flaperons. I see you're building from plans also. I had alot of fun doing it. Good luck with the rest!!

Me too, but it looks like it won't be for some time. Lots to upgrade and a major design change.
Happy flying!!!
