I am a new pilot with about 130 hours. 100 hours in Cessna 172 and 30 in PA-18 on floats. I am considering a Maule. I'm looking for some words of wisdom from you guys. What do you think of the Maule and the Franklin engines, is this too much airplane for a new pilot? I live on a lake and want to put it on floats. Things to look for before buying this plane... How does the M4 fly compared to a Cub... I'm not sure what to ask, any thoughts?
