    Wonder what type of wing/flap arrangement he has on that plane. I also
    noticed he yanks the right float off the water first.... Interesting....

    Zenith STOL CH-701 homebuilt. It has full-span flaperons and also has fixed leading edge slats. Bigger brother is the STOL CH-801 that's a four-seater. The CH-701 seats two.

    They are flaperons, not slotted flaps? Hmmm.

    Yep. Check out Zenithair.com. That's the kit manufacturer and they've got specs and pics for both the 701 and 801 on the site.

    There have been a lot of flaperons on high wing kit airplanes for quite a while. The Avid, Kitfox and Zenith aircraft come to mind immediately.

    I did! Excellent discussion of the designers philosophy and a rudimentary course on aerodynamics to boot!
