Hi Rob, if I may make a constructive suggestion in regards to your landing technique in the video. When I did my RV transition training with Mike Seager in Oregon he strongly emphasised the need to hold the nose wheel off the ground when landing until there was almost no elevator authority left to keep it in the air....and then gently lower it. That nose wheel on the RV7A is a fragile little critter.
