Thanks for posting your crosswind landing, but the view out front is more impressive with the nose cocked off into the crosswind! The strongest crosswind I’ve had to make was a good 30-40 knot direct crosswind from the right. I carried some extra altitude until I was established on the extended center line. As I tracked down extended center-line, my nose was cocked to the right a good 15 degrees, or so! Corrections were obvious and easily made......right of center line = reduce correction angle, left of center line = increase correction angle! I touched down in a crab while holding the up-wind wing a bit low to make sure the wind didn’t get under the wing and turn the ship.
Peace of cake,
