Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsHi Mary and Steve, here are some photos of my Lazy Bee in winter configuration [more pics 003, 004]. My Bee is with 48 inch wing and converted to electric. The 2 inch floats are good for snow flying.

Hi Guys, Am in Gt Britain and have a Crazy Panda which Was the Large Lazy B equivalent made by World Models a lot of years ago with a 6' wingspan mine is now converted to ailerons as well.
I have seen your pictures and plan for floats and as I fly off water during our summer I would like to build some floats but you havent got any float lengths on the plan you have width but not length. How do you calculate length. Please. Mike C.

The plans are specific to the standard size lazy bee and so were not meant to be scaled. The width advice was simply for heavy builders.
My suggestion would be to scale the floats proportionally from the plan but I am not experienced in float desgn. Perhaps searching/asking on some floatplane forums would help. www.rcgroups.com has an active one.

I submitted the plan originally and have the unassembled kit. The label says "Lazy Bee Float Kit" but has a separate "Also for the Speedy Bee!" No dates shown but the box had the appropriate Trexler wheels and pump.
The length of the main floats die cut side piece is 15.25" and is 2.5" tall. That of the tail float is 7.25" and 1.25" respectively. As printed on the box, "The floats can be built in two widths, (2" or 2.5"), to accomodate the weight of your plane. Heavier planes (electrics, 4-cycles, etc.) should use the 2.5" floats."

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
