From YouTube:

Robby Pedersen's best takeoff and landing from the 2016 Valdez Fly In. Flying a Just Aircraft SuperSTOL on new Ultralight Alaskan Bushwheels, Pedersen (no surprise here) took first place in the Light Sport Class

That landing is the equivalent to a hole in one on the golf course or a perfect game in th World Series.

Interestingly, that landing wasn't in the winning combination. Rob's first takeoff of 77' plus the 27' landing = 104'. His second attempt, while not as spectacular, was the winner: 54' takeoff + 49' landing = 103'.

Second place total was 144', and third place was 260'.

Hey guys and gals,

We put a camera on Robs strut for fun, we hadn't seen any video from a competitor yet so here it is. It's cool being able to see his feet while he's flying, gives you a bit of an idea of what the wind was doing. It was a lot of fun for sure and Robby did a great job!

That's impressive to put it mildly.

It speaks to the piloting skills
& Troy's designs.

Great job to both.

I'm lucky to be part of
this family.

Later!

John

Did everyone notice that the wingspan is 6 feet longer than normal?
