Now that would be an interesting ultralight to fly!

Do you know if the wheels need to retract for water landings on this ultralight?....Based on the youtube videos floating around (hehe...just noticed that is a pun! 🤣) of Cessna amphib's nosing over on a water landing because they forgot to retract the wheels I'd say so..but maybe an ultralight lands so slow its not necessary?

 

Great shots and hope you caught some fish on the trip!

Since it is an ultralight, the wheels do not retract, they just get wet and add drag, it is the way they are fastened to the aircraft, they do not perforate the pontoons.  The wing is a bit small, so it is a fast wing for an ultralight.  I prefer the generic Aerolight 103 mixed in with Xplane the most, but it does not have a float option.  It is a bit faster and more maneuverable than the trikes.

Nice adventure (in the scenic wine country) to try...I didn't think you could do that trick. Lovely shots of the sequence too!

But, you might need that thoughtfully provided lifebuoy...🙂...
