Hello Joel

There were a couple of things I really liked about your videos. One was the lack of a radically curved horizon that most on-board cameras give us. Yours must have less of a wide-angle setting and as a result, there is less distortion. It is also obvious that you are a good pilot and can keep the plane steady so as not to make the viewer dizzy.

There was another thing that was missing, that is usually heard but not seen. I didn't hear that annoying whine that usually comes from the digital flap servos. Mine do it, and every time I watch a video of someone's Radian Pro, I think to myself... "Yup, there's that sound again". Yours didn't do it. I wonder if Parkzone has changed the design of the servo on the newer planes? Sailplanes should be silent, and yours is.
