Video tutorial if possible, but not necessarily.
My main concern is with landing. Looking for tips at what is a proper altitude decent. Altitude to runway ratio, proper speed control.
I sometimes approach too fast and "skip" on the runway, or sometimes I will drop too quickly and hit trees just short of the runway. And sometimes I'm able to land safely, I'd say 40% of the time.

Also any tips on speed control while trying to fly in formation, would be appreciated.



You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

Just make sure you are going around 200kph even slower with the flaps down. Also make sure to use those flaps, you can just coast on in at slow speed and basically fall on the runway. Definitely check out requiems videos.
