    That video was hard to watch. I feel bad for Mike P. Glad all aboard are ok. As he said, the best that can come of this, besides all aboard being ok, is that other pilots might learn from this.

    He blames himself but the only error I see here is the decision to fly in such conditions which were likely over the wind limits for that airframe and it's ability to be controlled in such conditions. He's alive to tell what happened, that's what to me is most important.

    Hoped to see this thing in person, but I watch his 'Tube channel and more projects in the works. Key is all walked away (oh a broken nail) and he was right away analyzing his decision making.
