Nice landing! I think the nose strut took it all in stride. Too bad the mic is in the wind.

Gravel bar?- to me it seems a stone bar :-)  Gotta be harsh on that nose strut and the firewall.

Good demonstration of the capabilities of the 701.  Great flying too!

@F-JM - I use a Contour+ with the rollcage mount. It is placed on the rear strut, just to the inside of the jury struts. You can see it in this pic:

I have the 21" tires on order and should be here soon.

Excellent !

Wich type of camera did u used ? and  how do you fit it ?

PS: Try the Airtrack 22" tyres at 0.7 b, it fit the original wheels and it make landing so smooth
