She was maidened this morning. It took off smoothly with less than 50% throttle. However, screaming sound came out suddenly from motor and prop showed no response to throttle input at about 15ft high. She started loosing air speed but my surprise was that she glided like a fat glider and landed by herself. That was better than my usual landing. CG was 1cm behind of specified point. I guess that 4 blade prop was too heavy load for the motor used and it was the cause of step out.
I will try agin using usual 2 blade prop soon. My friend took movie this morning but due to the card reader problem, I am not able to show it now.

PS. Today, 18/AUG re-maiden was successfully done. Beautiful plane.
