    Hi Carl,

    I assume from your cross-post on J3-cub.com that these are/were installed on a Legend Cub? Am guessing a Cubcrafters owner interested in these would have to come up with their own rigging? I do not believe the two aircraft types are interchangeable.

    Baumann is a great float for the SPORT CUB. I wish they could have transferred the IP and tooling to someone who could have kept it going.

    Howdy Clay,

    Yes, from a Legend.

    I'm not familiar with the geometry of the SPORTCUB but have to assume it's somewhat different requiring some? work to mount. The good news is that there are SPORTCUBs on Baumann 1500A's so critical measurements should be available.

    I understand that 10 sets of Aerocets will be available for the SC, at Sun N Fun I was told the cost would be $48,000 installed. My floats, even with worst case mounting scenario will cost much less than that.

    Carl,

    I would be interested in your floats if the rigging will work for a J-3, any chance they will fit?

    Thank,

    Kirk

    As as you know, the Legend was designed to closely copy the Cub. The fuselage is 3 inches wider than a J-3 though , the float fitting are in standard location so it's probably doable with some fussing.

    It may be a moot point in that I have a deposit on the floats. I will keep your contact info in case the deal falls through.
