Zenair Float Kit Construction DVD now available

We have completed the construction video DVD for building the Zenair Amphibious Float kit! ( HomebuiltHELP )

It was surprisingly straightforward to build these from the supplied kit parts -- esp if you have experience building a metal aircraft in your recent history! It is nice to know that floats are now affordable if you are willing to do the work to put them together. Rigging the floats to an aircraft will be another project down the road.

The pictures and Youtube video on the webpage HomebuiltHELP provide a good example of the construction steps needed to build the floats. The DVD makes sense if you are really serious about starting a project like this and will serve as an aid to the construction manual documents. A great Fall/winter project to be ready in spring!

Thanks to Gus at FlyWithGus for help in this project!

Jon... It was not until well into the mounting / rigging process that I thought I should have done video of it for you. It was a long day...and ended at 1:20 AM in the dark. I don't have a video camera either...so there is another reason for forgetting to do that.
