Scenic Australian views from a new Cruzer

Hi All,  9 min YouTube - new kitbuilt 750 Cruzer with a Viking engine.
Scenic lap of Hindmarsh Island, South Australia - best on a big screen.
At 6 minutes you can jump fwd to the end, for the landing, if you wish. 
All clips sped up 200%, audio down to 20%, no music.

Now at 16 hours, all systems good, lots of power, leaps off the ground. 
Latest is various Flaps and side slip landings. 
Early in the day, it's like an armchair in the sky! 
Usual bumps through the thermals. 
Fitted a lightweight mustering siren (hidden) to chase the

Roos/Sheep/Birds in a grass/outfield situation - effectiveness?

I'm privileged to be able to do this, just sharing what I'm seeing.

Hi John,  Congrats on your beautiful 750 Cruzer flying! What a great adventure - Great video. I am getting close to first run of my Viking 110 in Zenith Zodiac 650B. Best Regards,  Larry Zepp

Thanks for the nice video, and thanks for not junking it up with crap music (or any music at all, for that matter).

I have a friend who lives in the marina community there on Hindmarsh Island. I will send him the video link.

Thanks for posting and leaving out the music. I would much rather hear the engine running and the wind rushing around fuselage.
