Default Smith Miniplane Point of View video

I strapped on the GoPro yesterday for an after-work flight. I've done this before but, given my eye angle, always ended up with a whole lot of sky. I tried tilting it way down for a recent flight in the Cornell and was really happy with the results. Figured I'd try it in the Smith.
The cut shows start up, take-off, circuit, and a low pass and overshoot. My buddy, former student and electrician was rewiring the runway lights (you can see him standing by the red truck north of the runway) so I gave him a wing waggle to keep his spirits up.
Enjoy!

Doesn't the X indicate a closed runway?

I hadn't noticed the X the first time. i see its in the over run, I thought all there was there were the V shaped paint stripes.

The displaced threshold is temporarily closed (new this week). The rest of it is open, though.
