Flying the pattern at Sun N Fun -- video posted!

I strapped a GoPro to my head and flew the pattern at Sun N Fun.

It shows takeoff, pattern, and landing, all just as I saw it.

I was flying our Burgundy II demo airplane with a 45HP four stroke motor.  I flew it a lot!

On Saturday, I was following the Just Super STOL and I had fun trying to match his landing lengths and takeoff rolls.  If any of you readers were there, how did I do??  :-)

As I was getting ready to takeoff one more time on Saturday, I looked down and noted that I had a flat tire!!  It was a good time to quit, so we called it a day and I taxied back.  I couldn't find any hole in the tire, perhaps I spun the tube and broke the stem when hitting the brakes hard (while showing off the short stop landing).
