    I fly a side-by-side, and my PTT is panel mounted. Perfect reach for a thumb or finger with your hand on the throttle.

    My only float time is in a 185 with Aerocets. It was a ton of fun, but I'm interested to see what a lower power, less slippery float feels like. I may have ruined myself, haha!
