It underwent 12 test flights for combined flight time of more than 2 hours to get it's LMA\CAA certificate to fly at public shows.

A rarely modelled scale radio controlled jet in an amazing scheme applied by the master, Philip Noel of Pinnacle Aviation.

Shaky flight. Assume the plane (or pilot) has smoothed it out.

...strong 90 degree cross wind - so I think a lot of us might be a bit shaky - it's an amazing piece of engineering

Bumpy summer air, but it seems like the use of a telephoto lens exaggerates the motion of the aircraft.
