Floats, Engines and CH 750

Posted on January 1, 2011 at 9:50am 11 Comments

We are about to buy an engine for the CH750 that came together quite quickly. While we anticipate some wheel operation, we live on Lake Superior, and anticipate most of the activity will be on floats.


While we generally adhere to the concept that more power is better to get airborne with floats, we are concerned about weight and balance. Has anyone put a CH750 on floats, what engine did you chose and why, and what was your balance calculations?

Bruce, I also live on a lake and am exploring the viability of building a Zenith 750 on floats. Can you share your progress this far? What engine? What type floats? Did you build the STOL, Cruzer, or SD? Thanks.
