Gopro HD, Sunex Lens, KK Blueboard with XX firmware in X mode.

The sunex means that the photos now no longer are fisheyed to the point of uglyness, yet still retaining a nice wide angle.

Venue is Surrey Park Model Engineers, Invercargill NZ. The offroad track was built by myself and a few club members over about a year.

Edit: The original files were huge, have swapped them out for reduced versions.

If you recognise the area, it is because this is the same outing that my crash video came from.

Here's a circuit diagram for a simple sound responsive LED controller for a drum kit. The basic premise is that a drum will light up when struck. It is designed for the Piezo diaphragm to sit under the skin of the drum, and the LED's to be mounted on the inside of the shell facing inwards so as to illuminate the whole drum interior. So far just the one circuit for each drum. If it works well I might integrate 5 channels into one circuit board to allow for lighting up a whole kit. If I did this I would have the LED's and piezo permanently within each drum, with the internal wiring terminating in a jack on the shell of the drum. This would allow for easy dissassembly and transport of the kit.
