Spitfire engine quits but can he land safely?


70cc twin V2
A demonstration of great skill by this pilot when the engine on his Spitfire quits and he has to execute a down wind landing to stand any chance of getting it home safely

With over 50 years of RC flying and having practiced dead sticks until I could do them in my sleep......

He got it down in one piece which is good and the goal. However with the altitude he started with he had more than enough to get to the downwind end of the field and make a normal approach into the wind. Nothing really impressive about what he did IMHO.
