Yeah, like they would let a bunch of U3-Xs into a museum -- that's an expensive disaster waiting to happen.

I'm building up a system to put in my 1/5 scale on road bike since the weather won't let me outside to continue development work on the other bike. I also think I found one of the issues with the bike when running off road. I've already got telemetry data going back to my laptop and window that shows a lean angle gauge along with all the text data. Just picked up a USB video capture device so I can display the data next to real-time video footage. Should help me debug the problem.

Now I just need to figure out how to overlay the openGl text and graphic on the video capture window and save them both off to an .avi file. Never done any directX programming before so it's slow going...
