Sound is okay for edf as long as the fan makes noise. You want to have noise to hear the pack running empty to lvc (fast)

Attachement a pic of the 1st measurement shortly after maiden flight a few years ago. With some fine tuning and flight style this plane is flown along with a Funjet+Colibri a few weeks ago. This Funjet has been radared at 300kmh, exept in vertical flight I had to abort climb earlier
