(Supply your own motion sick bag)<br /> <br /> It features some of my favorite footage with the Super701 racing at ArkanSTOL 2020 (there are also a few fun bonus clips at the end)!<br /> <br /> This Super701 was never intended to be used for racing purposes. It is a relatively heavy, stock Zenith 701 that was built for user comfort. It also has a completely stock ULPower 350iS production engine.<br /> The ground adjustable prop is set to a course cruise setting and was not re-adjusted for this event.<br /> This combination put the Super701 at roughly 50hp less than any of the competitors who placed higher in this event, even though it was only a few seconds behind them.<br /> <br /> With takeoffs and landings from 4 different runways in 2min 50sec (4th place), the Zenith Super701 has proven to be a very capable aircraft in STOL-based competitions. It is also a great performer in real-world cross-country trips, and local flying around the farm and the Southern Appalachian mountains in East TN.<br /> <br /> The pilot has less than 500hrs logged.<br /> Both the pilot and the plane were pushing near their limits during this spectacular run at ArkanSTOL.<br /> <br /> This was an excellent experience and planning is already underway for the 2021 ArkanSTOL event. I hope to see you all there!<br /> <br /> There were 2 cameras mounted on the Super701:<br /> A GoPro inside the cockpit, and an Insta360 One-X on a strut-mounted boom for the 360 footage.<br /> <br /> Follow the red plane on the animated map to keep up with where I am during the circuit.
