Yeah, the airport is right down the road…planes flying over constantly, lol. As far as drone, yes there is. Particularly around 2k rpms at partial throttle. Not horrible but it is there. The quiet mode mitigates it pretty well though, so having the option to put it in quiet mode at times is nice. I like some drone so I don’t mind it. Brings me back to the ole fox days. But, if I’m not in the mood to listen to drone, I just set it to quiet.
