My camera guy came out so I got a short video. He lost me on the last landing so that is why it is cut until right before touchdown. I had a south cross wind 6 gusting to 12 according to the weather data from yesterday. The Sock on the tech school hanger was sticking straight out 90o to the runway. The airfield sock was different around 60o!

Grant,

Thanks for the video. I can sit and watch Take-off/Landing video all day. Your machine looks great and you seem very comfortable with it. I can't get over how much it sounds like the GyRonimo...no surprise, perhaps.

Yea 2 blade prop on a 503 sounds just alike to me! I am getting there. I have 2 hours on the new tach.

The 1st landing was a tad hard. It looks like i got dropped at the last minute.
