"You made a few of hairs turn gray. I would slap that person. One reason the video professionals use the right term is because this problem mostly exists with fast horizontal movement. Thus it skews the image, as opposed to a wobble with aerial…"

"Jake, thanks for acknowledging that. I've been fighting the term for a while, but its becoming unanimous among the community. Even Chad of FliteTest says it, shame on him. You definitely don't have to worry about getting sued. These guys…"
