Just one shot from this evenings bimble along the Skeena River from Terrace to Prince Rupert B.C. in the Bird Dog.

Hi I tried this once in a Cub, but I still had the crash detection on. Big No No.

Thanks for the replies guys!

It is not too hard really - once you get down low, say about 20 feet just trim it out and ease it onto the water with the power - obviously a bit different in each aircraft but the key is to stay slow with some flap out, much more stable that way! 

I suspect it is a bit easier in real life because the Bush Wheels actually provide some flotation.
