I found the Kenmore STC approving Edo 2790 Amphibious floats on the M5-M7.
Has anyone flown a Maule with 2790s?

I haven't flown a Maule with Edo 2790s but I've flown a Cessna 180 with them. They're on the heavy side and the bow wheels had a tendency to shimmy if they touched down at too high a speed. There's a video of a 1999 M7-235B on 2790s on the Maule Air Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/MauleAir/video ... 162725700/

According to the FAA registration database, N235TD was exported to Brazil in 2013 but Kit Wilkes might have been the one flying it in the video.
