great flying and lovely video presentation mate. as to the jittering, if you camera has any kind of 'image stabilization' you need to turn it OFF when you are following high speed objects. this is a software feature (usually) that tries to minimize the effects of camera shake by artificially making the scene 'stand still'. when the camera is held roughly still pointing at a scene, this works quite well, but when the camera is moving to follow the glider, it gets confused between what it is trying to stabilize and what it should allow as movement, and you get jitter.

of course, some encoding settings can affect it as well, but as you said later, if you can take good footage in the first place, the rest is much easier.
