You did not dispute, you pretended the config for Habsheim was unknown.

No, I was asking where you were getting the evidence for your claim that the demonstration flown by GC on the video was at CONF FULL.
Already answered here and here.

Same graph mentioned by HN39 earlier.

I'm sure there are some areas that could have been improved, but on the whole it seems solid.
For someone who wanna stay blind, surely.
