cool - it is useful to see what is going on across them all.

I have always set mine slightly looser than the median value - e.g inlets 0.12 to 0.20 - I set mine 0.17/18 rather than 0.16

You posted the link as a picture rather than a video, which is why it doesn't work.

That annoying whining noise is the engine. You'll never tell 100% from a video, but it sounds perfectly normal to me. If you don't like this sound, perhaps a V4 isn't for you...?
