What weight setting are you at? What landing speed? What take off speed?

Actually working on an actual tutorial showing speeds, flaps, rudder control, etc. Should have it completed in a couple of days.

Awesome video, but quick question. Why so low on the downwind?

Just showing how I fly a pattern. When no traffic, I fly low. When other traffic, I fly around 1500’ AGL

image@Mark_Denton. MaxSez… Well done Mr. Denton. Great Short Final, precise! Little low on the downwind. The “Right Stuff”! Have a Good Peanut your #8 for 2016.

@dush19 I’m working on tutorial that will show all of that. Although, I’ve flown spitfires with you before; it’s going to take a lot more than the HUD view to help you buddy. 😆

LOL Max. Not sure I understand the #peanut but thank you all the same. Love to fly low and fast (not something I get to do in the 172 IRL)!

Yeah that’s what I’m showing in the tutorial I’m working on. Showing the rudder control with winds for the Spitfire.

Nice one man! I tend to prefer the 3-point landing for the Spit.
