I was reading through some old forum posts and found a few with difficult approaches, be it due to terrain or a runway as long as your arm and some just as wide. So instead of doing what’s familiar, I thought I’d push myself. In turn, I hope you all enjoy the screenshots with the new drone cam and maybe some might just find the bravery to follow suit. I will post a new flight twice a week in a 6 part series. Feel free to comment, critic, applaude, boo, whatever you like. I enjoy feedback and love to learn.
So without further adieu, one of the more common difficult approaches, Singapore & Kuala Lumpur’s WMBT.
Over the crest to spot the runway
A lot of rudder and throttle work turning in, to keep speed low and nose in the air, while staying very low.
Making final adjustment turns to ensure I hit centre
Now I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but even I was a bit impressed with just how close I got to the edge of the runway.
So close in fact I managed to slow down enough to taxi off with a taxi back down the runway!
I hope you enjoy the pics and hope to see yours in the replies below!
