Not bad. :)

 

And now I wanna see you land that thing back at Gudauta (without dropping anything and without breaking anything!). :D

 

 

Deal... I feel getting her stopped by the end of the runway will be the issue :D

Turns out the take-off is much harder, see track. :)

 

I thought I was smart to leave the flaps retracted until the very end of the runway, but crawling over that first building looked (from the cockpit perspective) maybe even a little bit closer than in your vid.

 

The landing wasn't that hard, except for a near-collision with the NDB because I became too slow and almost stalled right into it.

 

Probably worth mentioning that it's been a known bug for a long time that stopping-distance is shorter with Anti-Skid turned Off. I exploited that, but it looked as if a landing with Anti-Skid turned On could be quite doable as well.

 

Nice challenge. :thumbup:

 

What's next: Hot and high or laughably short runway...? :lol:

Decided to up the challenge since I'm fairly used to the "flying bus" configuration (though not 139% :P) by trying to take off with a 20m/s tailwind. The result was that I couldn't even get my tail off the ground until I careened of the runway into a fiery death. Talk about tail dragger :D

Lol nice!

 

I noticed you flew below the NDB wire :D

 

Also you did stop a lot shorter than I did with the anti skid off. Although you did leave a lot of skid marks all over the runway... :thumbup:

think you should go back to manuals and see how headwinds/tailwinds work.... :smartass::music_whistling:

Reminds me of the 'Fastest Heavy successful landing and successful stop without running out of Runway' challenge a good while back:

Are you suggesting that a tailwind makes takeoff easier?
