Nice rendition of an unusual aircraft. There's a 1/4 scale version that's been flying out here for about 4 years now. Float flying every Monday all year long....well, except this year, we actually got winter, snow n' all.

This is a beautiful plane. You got skills/talent. The plane seems to fly well. The landing at the end was, well, it was cool enough.

The plane looks really nice! Although it seems as if the COG is a bit too far back. Try moving it forward in small increments until you find a sweet spot.

Balances at 25%of MAC , I think I need some down and right thrust .

The zooming up with power didn't show up with the 9x6 prop , for this flight I was using a 9.5x8 and there was quite difference .

It was tail heavy , I think it was the different prop , went from a glass filled prop to a slow flyer , never thought there would be that much difference .
