Probably over a thousand feet before the end of the runway! I'm impressed, but people on the ramp at

the airport ....amazed!

Grass will probably be the norm from now on, at least when they are available.

I'm using a Contour+ with the RAM rollcage mount.

Grass strips are the norm for me - I enjoyed your video - esp the shadow at just the right angle.

What camera are you using?
