GWS Beaver on Floats with Brushed power system

Float Fly operations did not got that well today...this is with a new configuration for radio\ESC\motor..trying to get a brushed setup to work..so far its not to good but its early in the season The problem here is the balance..tail heavy...got that sorted out and will try again soon..this plane has a "skyfly" radio setup in it with a GWS 350 with "A" ratio and 9.50 prop.
This setup is good for about 63watts..

edit..did some more testing and I have changed the prop to a 10.80 and now I'm at 85 watts.

edit..this power system does not have enough power so I will changing it over to brush less.

I will advise to your wonderful beaver title while fearing it.
I have been driving the surface of the water airplane for 30 years or more. There is variously advice when your Movie image is seen.
First of all, please let me without fail upwind and run about this though it is a run-up for leaving the water. It is never overthrown because of the crosswind if it does so.
And, it waits until being able to peel off, running to the windward, and leaving the water naturally. And, it is made to fly in parallel to the surface of the water until the speed becomes early even if the float leaves the surface of the water. When it acts rashly at this time and the elevator is improved, it is sure to become stall.
It waits until the speed adheres enough.
The above

in other words I stalled it..this was my first attempt this spring and I was in a bit of a hurry..also only 60 watts of power availible...I'm changing the prop for a bit more power. Ok..looks like a 9.70x3 is what I'm using..this gives me about 75 watts. I'm trying to get back to the lake for another run..
