Sea Trials

found out that my ESC / Motor / Prop / battery combo isn`t up to the job... at full power a toss launch resulted in a landing about 150ft downrange. Dang... but at least i can attest to the real nice qualities of the wing !! no stall drop, lots of lift, incredible high AOA possible... now i need to get a bigger ESC and try again, current was a 10A and there seems to be a problem with it as it started to stutter at full throttle... maybe it didn`t survive the dunkings in my previous float plane as well as i thought.

oh well so off to the LHS tomorrow to get some shopping done

at least the water handling is awesome ! Even in very high crosswinds the plane tracked perfectly straight

excuse the missing paint on the left wing.. the spray can was empty before the plane was finished but that should also be fixed tomorrow !
