    He is full forward on the stick. I can't figure out if he is trying to raise the tailwheel or just help in the dive? Either way, it is an impressive video!

    I think it's to keep the tail from bangin on the edge

    I would think its for getting off without stalling the wing ,i gess it would not be fun to get off that cliff with a wing dropping down on you lookin at it and its would be below stall speed.

    That was a few weeks ago in Alaska. The DoubleEnder worked really well. Still a work in progress. Here's what it looks like from the pilot's perspective:

    I'm glad he has two engines that ice looks mighty unforgiving.
