    Another lovely seaplane build from the original OWL. This one is fun and sporty, I had a lot of fun with this one. Flight is a joy with this one and she can practically land on her own. Takeoff was a little tricky. You can't simply power all the way up to 100% or she'll nose over, with or without flaps. Eventually I dropped the flaps all the way, eased the throttle up gradually until a little over 50% while keeping the wings level until she broke the surface tension of the water. Finding out the trick to it was fun in and of itself! Great build as always!
