Great! welcome to the club. I find a shot gun is excellent for getting them down from the trees.

And how are you guys protecting your kk board?
I'm thinking of using the foam that came with it to protect it in the mail,
what do you guys think?

It's not a bad idea. Getting the pile of cable in and out of the foamis a mission though.
A mate at the field had got one of those plastic cases that CDR's come in. You know the ones that you twist to unlock them. The 10 pack case is just right.
They are a tough thing to cover.
Wonder what pictures of covers the lads have ???

I finally got my OSD Pro, vlogger, and GPS from HK USA warehouse at discount. Just need to read the manuals and figure it out. This will be going with a Fatshark 5.8 with blue whip antennas. Can't wait, it should turn out good.

Hi Big Jim and all. What kind of shop has the silicon tube for vibration isolation? On eBay there's lots of "vacuum" silicon tube for cars, would that work?

Had good results with softer stuff like medical type and the band for the sling shots in the big stores.
