GWS38 on 2205 brushless motors

I maidened her this morning in perfect conditions and had 3 excellent flights. I bought the NPS kit and added all GWS components:

2 x 2205 GWS outrunners
2 x EP8040 GWS props
2 x 15AMP GWS BEC's
4 x PICO BB GWS servos
1 x 6 Ch GWS receiver
1 x 2200 Mah GWS 2 cell Lipo battery

It fllies pretty scale with this configuration, I was impressed at how well flaperons worked. I was expecting some wild stall behaviour, but it seems that the motors on the wings calm this behaviour.

All flights were done off a smooth concrete runway and straight and level flight only required a few clicks of trim. I got 3 x 15 minute flights per charge on the battery at a fraction over half throttle.

All in all, one of the nicest planes from GWS I have built and flown!
