Another little strip tucked away in the valleys of the Kryan Mountains (I really need to learn to spell that!), Binuang is fairly straight forward strip to fly into, although is again surrounded by high terrain which you need to keep in mind (and visual with).

Always a good idea to over-fly this strip as there's enough room and it give you a chance to suss the winds out. Either direction is fine for landing although if you go for 17 you won't have to back-track the strip after landing to get to the parking bay. Top tip: don't try and turn around in the middle of the strip. The ground gets incredibly boggy here and you'll get stuck which will require you getting half the village out to help push your aircraft back into the centre of the strip (don't ask how I know!).

Depending on the winds I tend to depart which-ever direction suits my next destination. There's plenty of room in the valley to climb out without being too concerned with the terrain. It's pretty bumpy, so you'll want to tighten up that power level friction a bit to stop it slipping back as you roll.
