We appreciate the videos Stonecutter. I'm too busy to edit mine and have to put them up in raw form. It's funny as I was teaching a young salesman (13 year-old son of a friend) how to fly and learning pitch, roll, and yaw, it was easier for him to learn the controls by doing what you showed in the video, just skimming the ground.

Once of the problems he had was removing the battery. He finally got the hang of it, but not before breaking the wire internally. As a result, we're going to offer a free service of cutting the retaining tab bumps off the stock battery if you desire it for younger pilots. Just request it with your order, and we'll cut the bumps off. There's still plenty of friction to keep the connector in place.

Actually, there are no skils involved, the ground effect will cause the gyro to react that way. I thought everyone knew that.

Another benefit of cutting off the bumps or side tabs is you can use the same charger that you use for the v929, just make sure to match red wire with red wire (black with black) when plugging in.

Haha, definitely made me laugh out loud.

Another satisfied customer. Ordered my lipo's on Tuesday, they were shipped out Tuesday and arrived today. Love the fast service and not having the agony of waiting weeks and weeks on end. Thanks again MO

I've waited on some batteries/parts for so long from China, that I no longer had the plane/helicopter anymore by the time they arrived.

Wow! Big improvement. It loaded in 3 seconds on Google Chrome, down from 10 seconds before.
Firefox = 3 seconds
Internet Explorer = 3 seconds
Safari = 2 seconds
Opera = 2 seconds

The text is loading very quickly, but the graphics still seem a little slow.

Loading quickly for me.

Even running quickly on full site on my phone.

I'm sure it's a relief to get that big hurdle out of the way.

Nice, thanks Harry

Got an external 808 cam vid uploaded. It's not as good as Stoncutter's but shows the fast circuits you can do with the Mini Pet.

I mounted my 808 to some gutted sunglass frames. I like it better than the cap mounting as I can get her in frame better.

Time to upgrade to an 808 #16 V2-B or 808 #16 V2-D (Wideangle) for 720p HD and the ability to remove the (wrong) date.
See Tom Frank's threads on here for that or its almost-twin: the 808 #18
