WOW, It does look challenging, seems fast even with flaps, I usally use the same speeds without flaps for my approaches. Nice to have your own strip to land on,enjoyed your vid. Tks

Thanks guys! I'm really glad you enjoyed it! It took 3 attempts the first time  I took the 701 in there. The first takeoff was worse than the first approach! I have a friend that built and flies a Murphy Rebel. he said of all the places he has flown into in 18 years my place is the "most challenging". I have many hundreds of landings there now and It's just another day at the office for me, but when I go to a big airport without stuff whizzing by and rushing up at me I cant get a good landing to save my sole. I usually flare to high or to low at a regular airport. That landing I made at the asphalt strip was the best one I've ever done there. It surprised even me! Thanks again, I'm glad you enjoyed the video.

Nice plane and very nice flying! Those approaches into your strip are certainly not for the weak!

Wayne, that was awesome! I watched the whole thing in full screen, it was like riding along with you. I was clenching a bit as those trees slid by on your last landing. LOL
