LEG Crossover DS on Canuck Hill, CO

Here's a short 3.5 circle DS video of my Crossover ripping up the backside before the wing mounts tore out of the fuse on the third pass. HUGE energy. 30 - 50 mph on the front side straight on the hill.

Second plane to try the groove was the Destiny but didn't enter well and got thrown off the shear into the rocks at the bottom of the back side. Totally repairable. I got video of that too, but not so dramatic. More pilot error than anything.

Remember the Crossover is a 2M EPP plane.
