Great job for you but statistically a pilot that decides to turn back to the field after a power failure odds of a successful landing are very few! We always teach the 45° rule land 45° to the left or to the right never try to turn back to the field you’ve got a tail wind situation against you and stalls and spins etc it’s deadly! 

Have you ever tried this? I have many times to determine my decision point. I can easily make it back to midfield at or above 600 agl
