Matthias Jeppsson transferred these pictures from his VHS-C video tape. Sea flying meet took place on may 10, 1997. Cloudy and rain all during the week-end. All modellers still flew, of course!

It is easier to get the floats up on the step and to get lift-off if the water is not calm. Those waves are more than good enough.. Floats in he air

Take-off Stick 40+, covered with fluorescent Solarfilm. Good choice, especially in these conditions..

Back on the beach..
Stick 40+ with Saito 65 engine. Wing span 160cm (=64 in.). Foam floats, designed for .60 plane. Good on those large waves. Twin rudders.
