More people should get on this thing. Lots of fun! A folded pad makes the landing just fine.

May just be a "variation" (I don't know what EZ did on FA) but we weren't sure about those semi-detached blocky feet at the start. It goes both ways, but is obviously easier with the blocky feet (and much less painful). Seemed like old school V5 (V6?) without them, V4 or so with. Either way, fun problem with a sweet approach.
