    Nice Joe, thanks for the Vid link. Enjoyed watching it, although I would prefer to have that fan in front me running to keep me from sweating

    OMG that is crazy!

    I wonder if his POH lists a "No engine takeoff speed".

    A 27MPH stall speed!!! You could keep it in the air with a desk fan!

    LOL. Judging from the tiremarks at 2:42 in the video, that was not the only attempt make for this stunt.

    Wish I knew where that was? Would love to try it in MSFS.

    Enjoyed it, thanks Joe.
