Hi Rick Knicely,
Unfortunately the Telerik drag and drop is not working within the floating panes due to the fact that they are using popups. We have this issue logged for future implementation, but can't provide you with a workaround or sample right now.
Sorry that it took so long for adressing this scenario and thank you for your patience.
All the best,
the Telerik team
