Takeoff Video - Solo land takeoff in
calm conditions with no special
'effort' for STOL performance. Simply
advance throttle, roll to 55mph and
These videos where taken during 2003 with a VHS C
camcorder and have been encoded to WMV (Microsoft Media
Player) format for download. At the time, our CH-701 was still
powered with the original Rotax 912A 80Hp engine.
This summer, we'll be out with a new DV Camcorder to get
new videos - especially of water flying.
Landing Video - Landing associated
with video above. Our approach
technique is to hold ~70mph until
short final and maintain partial power
until touchdown. This helps avoid
bad bounces and bent metal with the
high lift / high drag wing.
Hover Video - Combine low stall
speed and some fall westerlies and
you can have fun going nowhere at
all. Hover was acheived at ~40mph,
1/2 flaps for level attitude.
Water Landing Video - Final approach
and landing on Grand Lake St Mary's.
Look for a better video and hopefully
some outside views this summer.
Circuit Video - Good, close shots of
takeoff, flyby, and landing of our
CH-701. Flyby is with the gear up and
shows how the mains and nose-wheel
look while retracted.
