PBY-5A Catalina and its floats

I have a question about the PBY-5A Catalinas.

On the pure floatplane PBY-5 (not -5A) you can, with the same control that normally controls the landing gear, lift or lower the wingtip floats.

On the -5A using the same keybind you can extend or retract your gear only - but I see no way to control your floats anymore.

Am I missing something?

I dont believe that you can use floats for the -5A. You can still land on water without much issue so it shouldnt affect your gameplay.

no as the floats on the pby-5 are considered as gear, and the pby-5 a has actual wheels you cant lower the pby-5 a’s floats.
