    Default takeoff and landing on my property

    I think this plane is capable of flying from my place.

    I would like more details on his reduction drive.
    Cog belt....or HyVo chain...?
    Auto engine conversion have come a long way.

    Not a cog belt, custom made reduction, think HyVo chain. The engine is a Yamaha snowmobile engine, with a turbo, making 300 hp.

    I think thatís pretty much what I built in SC (a Super STOL) then got my Lic in NC and flew for a short time before I sadly ground looped it at Spirit. Got caught in a cross wind and my left main gear collapsed just above the wheel. Steve is flying a Highlander from Just Aircraft thatís set up a lot like Just Aircrafts Super STOL.
    Check out the flying competitions up in Alaska.
