Hey Jerry - Where is the camera mounted on main video? Is it on rudder? If so...How did you secure it?

Also - how do you get the audio from radio calls on your video without all of the engine/cabin noise?

The trim tab on the left aileron is adjustable.  I modified a Zenith elevator trim tab kit to work on the ailerons.  The same Ray Allen servo and switch was use.  Based on all the comments on the Matronic email forum it was obvious that a heavy left wing could be a problem.  So I decided to add the aileron trim during my build.  I'm glad I did because the trim needs to be changed as you draw fuel from the wing locker tanks.

As far as the picture-in-picture, this is done by the software that I'm using to edit the videos.  I'm using Pinnacle Studio 17.

My plane has a Rotax 912ULS with a warp drive prop.

Excellent video. Appears that you have a fixed trim tab on the left wing. My 601 requires left wing trim. what engine and prop do you have. Based on 601 at Mexico with Corvair engines - all had left wing trim. How do you get the split screens on the one video? Rubber side down - when landing.
