Oshkosh and Valdez STOL competitions. C170B 1st place!

Postby cc » Wed Aug 14, 2019 12:50 am

Hi All, the C170B is a very capable STOL aircraft (if suitably modified) and I'm happy to share some video's of my 1st place wins this year at the Valdez, Oshkosh and Sodbusters STOL competitions.

Jughead also recently posted a video in this forum of his STOL demo during the Oshkosh STOL event. Jugheads C170B is stock except for an 80"prop!

Also as a matter of interest is that Cessna C170B's took all 3 positions in Valdez, AK and Sodbusters, Milaca, MN and 1st and 3rd at Oshkosh (A C180 took 2nd).

Unfortunately I cant figure out how to upload any photo's and results here direct from my PC (too much of a mission) so I can only post links to video's. Anyway hopefully those of you interested in STOL will enjoy the videos.

You obviously have superb skills. My compliments. Can you let us know what modifications you have made to your airplane? Is that an o-300?

Thanks from a fellow 170B owner!
