Just looking to get a ballpark weight. Also wondering if anyone with the above has full lotus 1260 floats on could give their empty weight?

little rocket added a topic in Avidfoxflyers General HangarFull lotus float questionsLooking for some info on full lotus floats, I noticed 2 planes that I looked at that the tail end of the floats when sitting on the hanger floor SAG down to the point that you can see a downward curve in the ridge pipes.
Is this normal? I later watched one of these planes taking off on the water and it didn't seem like it could rotate on takeoff and appeared to have to kind of pop the plane off to get it to come out of the water,I wondered if this was due to the sagging off the floats at the back limiting rotation.It also had a porposing problem on takeoff.I have no experience with these floats and would appreciate any input.
