I have mine dialed very slow for going down but not as slow going up.

I was thinking about plugging each aileron into an individual channel and having crow setup. But I figure that is not really scale for this plane ha ha!

Hey Paul,
What prop are you using, are you using the stock motor and do you have any problems with heat using that 3 bladed prop?

Could you post a Pic of your setup? I am having a TERRIBLE time getting my stock setup to taxi with any real authority

Same here. But it was a windy day when I tried mine! I am hoping maybe that was the reason why. I know planes with floats tend to be harder to steer on the water. Planes like the Icon are a lot easier!

Ok so do these just flip up and down freely? I think it's an awesome idea reguardless. I'm not going to leave mine stock.

I know these EPO beavs are kinda new...but Im wondering if someone who has one with some time on it can help me. I want to get one if I can fly it on a certain pond. Problem is this pond is only about 120' x 250', with houses surrounding! Given the wing loading, I think its possible but probably too stressful and difficult, but I could be wrong since I dont own the plane yet. Seems would require perfect circuits, not room for error. If someone is good with distances etc and can comment/advise that would be great . thanks.
I would think it wouldnt fly that much diffenent if u have time on the wheels, and probably easier to judge distance on the ground using landmarks etc. Such a tempting package. wish there was also a smaller version in this case. Still, think it fills a nice niche, may get one anyway. there is no smaller alternative really, nothing close to a nice as this package. the GWS is nothing like this.
Some obscure foreign one is nice but a foam kit, not arf.

Well, I joined the club!

I saw one on display recently at a hobby shop in San Diego and had no idea this thing even existed...

I've always been fascinated by STOL aircraft and after perusing this thread I decided to order a Tx/R from Hobbyzone for $209; thought it was a fair price.

Just checked my e-mail and it shipped on friday !

Can't wait to get her built and start horsing her off the ground in 5 feet !

Takeoff is short but suprisingly gracefull once it lifts off. I was impressed every takeoff. Got my first 5 packs through her today. Fitted the floats on this evening, looks awesome.

Thinking of fitting tundra tires on mine eventually, do you think that Dubro inflatable 4" smooth wheels would be too big?

Yes they do but I found that even up the plane taxi's well so I tighten the screws and leave them up for scale look in flight.
I also did taxi in stronger wind and if you use the wind well to taxi using the technique of moving the boyancy point it taxi's well too.
If the wind is very strong then because its so light it will most likely flip over.
I had mine flip over in a strong wind but I was not holding the controls , I was holding my camera
