1. volitare. 2. mollis. 3. sine gravitate. 4. distributio corporis gravitatis praeclara.
Explanation:
1. "fly, flit, hover, float (in the air)": VOLITARE. If you mean "float (on top of water)", then FLUTARE or FLUITARE or NATARE would be far preferable.

2. "gentle, soft, pliable": mollis. If you mean "quiet, not loud", then LENIS is the proper word.

3. "weightless, without weight": sine gravitate (this is a prepositional phrase, not an adjective). The adjective LEVIS means "not heavy, having not much weight".

4. "very good (best) distribution of body weight": distributio corporis gravitatis optima.
