    It is amazing! More like a space ship at that altitude. Everything from take off to landing on that crazy bicycle landing gear. There is an advertisement that pops up halfway through, just click on skip ad.

    It's called a yaw string. It "points" to the rudder you need to push for coordinated flight. A very handy little "heads up" indicator.

    I wonder at what altitude you have to start compensating for Earth's rotation so you don't land in China.
