Default Hang Clean Feedback

Hey everyone, I still very new to olympic lifting so I was hoping I could get some feed back on my hang clean form. I've been working from the hang to keep things simple for both my clean and snatch, but I still feel like I am having the following problems:

1. No hip explosion.
2. Elbows are dropping below parallel.
3. Not getting under the bar fast enough. I think this is related to #1, but I'm also 6'9" so I've got a lot of ground to cover.


Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I've only been working on the lifts for about 2 months, so I'd like to correct anything now before bad habits get ingrained in my muscle memory and motor patterns.
