Update from Singapore.

My boats arrived unharmed except for my footy. The mast was bent and the hatch cover looks like someone stepped on it crush the ?$it out of it.

I will rig my Nirvana and try to take her out his weekend.

I took the plung and stepped up and purchased a used IOM from a local club member. I am in the process of sanding the hull for a fresh coat of paint and a new look. She is very sea worthy and I am looking forward to getting her on the water. The local guys sail every weekend so I should get plenty of time on the water.

She came with an RMG winch and a good rig and sails. I need to buy a battery pack and replace a couple of hull parts but nothing major. I will place an order with Sailsetc for the parts and get them epoxied in and sanded smooth.

Will post some photos of my progress soon.

I love seeing the fall photos of all the boats. It is a constant 90 degrees over here so no chance fall colors.

Take care guys.
David

Very nice video! Looks like Tri-city park - It is nice to see the lake being used for sailing. When I lived in Brea, I don't ever remember seeing any sailing going on there.

Be interested in seeing how you mounted the "key chain" camera. I have one I got from Hobby King some time ago, but haven't gotten around to trying the darn thing. The video quality is really surprising!

Thank you
Boomer

Minizoom, that video quality is amazing, sharp as a tack.

I too would be interested in your camera details, I'd like to try that.

Captain Crash has taken some very good videos too, and I'm thinking of taking the plunge.

I made a small plastic bracket to get it up off the deck a bit but still low enough to see under the booms - camera is mounted with Velcro (hook and loop) - works great, has a security chain as well

Mr. P
Any issues or concerns with water getting to the camera?

Nice video...I always love the onboard stuff. David that's too bad about the Footy...at least you still have something to sail though.

I didn't get in any boating this weekend, but did get in some fishing and playing with the Bronco...oh and blew the hell outa a floating stick snake with the sawed off pump 12 gauge...man that 00 buck, magnum express round, kicks some serious booty...

I just love the videos taken by onboard cameras. They give you a sense of what sailing is all about.

I used a piece of foam and cut it square and used double sided foam tape. Simple and quick!

There's actually a quite a few people that sail at Tri-city park now. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday is when people show up. More on Sat though.

Almost forgot to mention the make and model: 808 #16 I bought it from this ebay seller "eletoponline365" There's a long thread in rcgroups somewhere.

The quality is pretty good for $38.99. My gopro hd2 is better but that cost $245.
