How to get a float plane off the land

Recommended Posts

Trying to fly the San Juan Island Run. The floatplane starts out beached. How do I get it floating in the water so I can taxi and takeoff?

I haven't flown that yet...try putting down landing gear if it has them...maybe you can slew it into water...now I gotta go see...you have any addons like mesh or anything that may have altered the landscape?

Have you tried going into slew mode and then slewing into the water?

After reading harleyman's reply I disabled UTX. Sure enough, the planes floating next to the dock. Thanks harleyman.Nonetheless, the question remains; how can you push a floatplane away from a beach?
