Yep ! I come in under power ! Dive down about 4 feet off the dirt,get her level cut power,hit flaps (if you have them) and flare just a bit with elevator. Keep it level,if you run out of room power up and go around and cut power a little sooner. never try to turn while that close to dirt and no power , you can use rudder to make minor adjustments
