Well, if you want any critiques, I'd say the vertical rolls got a little out of hand. No need to roll for so long, usually 1 to 4 will be enough but too much gets very repetetive. Then any other time you roll in your routine becomes excessive.

Flares are nice sometimes but in aerobatic aircraft, they tend to look ugly and out of place. I wouldn't recommend using them here.

Otherwise, you've got potential. I recommend some more practice with making maneuvers clean and making a routine work a little better in the box and around a viewpoint. Please pay a visit to AirFest this weekend so you can get a general idea of how our air shows work!

Unless you're trying to dust the crowd, I suggest setting your smoke-fade time to 10 seconds instead of 30.

I like what you did at 2:20, a decently timed stunt. My advice is to give some room and time before each smoke-on maneuver. It's not about constant high-G rolls and turns, but order and precision: realism for short. That's what impresses people.

Not trying to criticize but construct.

Edit: Didn't see VNAF's post.

Well... it's Germany ... they are just plain dumb with the invention of GEMA... about 80% of all the blocked videos on yt are only because GEMA MAY not have the rights... but this goes offtopic now...

//Edit:
Looks fine for me ... i mean, i dont know anything of aerobatics... but it looked impressive enough for me :D
