Aaron,

Never thought of using a covering iron for soldering work. Don't think mine'll get hot enough.

m_beeson,

It's about time! Oh man, I can't wait to see some good high def aerial mountain footage! Get out there and get some, would'ya!

I'm already thinking of a stabilization unit. It seems pretty simple. I'll share when it is finished, but for now, I'll just shoot some video.

Yeah, after buying one I realize it was a waste of money. The design they did was lame, I could improve on it easily and get it working with a few hours of work. They used a thing flimsy plastic, and it was ridiculously stupid. I may write them and tell them I want my money back.

OKay, I may have misunderstood, I thought you were trying to melt hot glue. LOL For anyone else reading, I retract my earlier ridiculous question.

I couldn't wait for the wind to die down. I just had to try the GoPro.

It was a bumpy ride. I normally would have just thrown this footage out,

but I managed to salvage it

I was at the field today, and the wind gusted up. I had to pack it all up.

Then right before dark it was beautiful, but I wasn't ready to get out, so I didn't make it. It was just beautiful...



Here's the snowmobile ride from Monday. It was a lot of fun.

Mountain flying? You should call that "Above the mountain flying".

I crashed my quad again today. I should call it "Into the mountain flying".

Nice video Mike. The next trip out is going to be sweet with GPs on both.
