Show off your GWS E-Starter

(starting a new thread since the old one is closed.)

Can't believe it took a year (I finished assembly in September 2011) but I finally maidened my E-Starter STOL this weekend. The video isn't great -- my hat-cam was crooked and off-target for most of the flight -- but it's worth it for the crowd's comments.

"Bush Plane" E-Starter - Maiden Flight - October 7th, 2012 (2 min 24 sec)

It wasn't a great flight. 2S just isn't enough for the combined mass and drag. I'll hog out a little more foam and stick a 3S 1000 mAh in there instead.

At least it flies, and my home-made landing gear saved the plane from suffering more damage. Will fly again soon.
