Movie of a E starter maiden on Ski's

I run a 400 with a gear Box e gear 350 to 1 and a 1260 prop and 3 cell lipoly's , had to make the landing gear a 1 1/4 longer to allow for the large prop
First flight using only ruder and ele
courtesy Of gwsparts.com
It is a forgiveing airplane to fly, we used full throw on the controls the beaver needed half the throw's to fly
You can see in the movie the gentle turns and it self rights it self, easy to land because of the self righting wings.
I saw in the movie that it was a tad tail heavy but it still flew well, I made it more nose heavy and it flew even better, this was the first flight

Made a new wing for the E Starter, really fly's faster and quicker turns but not as forgiving as the wing that came with it but I like it better, for a newbie the stock wing would be better to learn on
