Opened gear too early. This might have been the case why landed too short.

    Very good video, thanks for posting. What airspeed did you use against the wind? I can’t decipher the speedmeter. What camera is that? Did you use polarizing filter?

    Glad you like it. There will be continuation… Camera is GoPro with no polarizing filters. Talking about the airspeed it varied from 160 to 200 km/h, but at the end i should have reduced. It would have saved me from the struggle getting the glider out of the field :)
