    Pete, you don't mention Aerocet's above - not applicable? I'm installing a set now on a new EX-2, and haven't seen mention of a ventral fin.

    Thanks,

    Check the drawing package or with Mitch. I can't recall off the top of my head if Aerocets need the ventral. If they are the 1500 Amphib they may not, they are much smaller floats than Claymars or Wipaire.

    Ventral fins are butt ugly and limit where you can beach your aircraft heel first. It's difficult enough without the fin to pull your tail in even on a beach with a steep bank, add shoreline brush and rocks and your never going to play or camp where you want with a bottom fin. I would check the flight stability before adding one
