Short take-off and landing (STOL) demonstration.

We found this narrated video clip on YouTube of this original STOL CH 701 powered by the 80-hp Rotax 912 in New Zealand. It offers a great explanation of STOL piloting...

Cool video! The first 2 minutes and 50 seconds was most informative. It really set the scene for the video.

Yes, Neil's website has good information and photos: We especially like his custom-made STOL CH 701 hangar.

Impressive flight. Now if you could just lose the first 2 minutes and 50 seconds of the plane doing nothing . . .

I think Neil also wrote a detail description on how the 701 flys. He posted it on the web somewhere, I just can not remember where I came across it.
