    Cool stuff. Good work, SNC. I thought I saw some pretty aggressive deflections of that center rudder dealy, but I guess that’s what it’s there for. Also, saw some pretty intense shimmy of the port landing gear.

    I saw nothing resembling “shimmy” of the landing gear. Toward the end of the roll-out I saw some heat shimmer in the video imagery. This drop test took place in the high desert of California. Ground temperatures there are routinely over 100 F. even in the winter.

    Gotcha, yeah I wasn’t sure if what I saw was some camera artifact or actual vehicle behavior.

    No, its a shimmy – compare it against the immediate background. Heat shimmer is in other parts. Easy enough to fix though. Taxpayers have put millions into this so glad to see some progress.
