 unfortunately it happened. you have my vote for POD, not to glorify the crash, perfect scorpion, etc, but because it's way more real than the typical staged POD. glad you're ok.

 Its a decent scorpion, because of the steep angle I dont really feel like you got the proper extension. Proper extension - or text book scorpion I feel requires a very sudden stop for the head and upper torso, causing full flex of the back to get the leg extension needed for the feet to almost touch your dome piece. With that said, Im sure you can push it harder and get a real 10/10 scorpion. Great progress sir!
