Just shoot some video of a bear in SD and tell everybody it's you poodle?

Isn't it amazing how what works in the shop fails in the field? Gremlins sneak in on the way to go flying.

Very nice kerbob, you have some great equipment and are well on you way for some serious FPVing. Have you all seen the new LRS from Flytron with open source code?

Your mission Jim, if you shall accept it

1- Find bear
2- Pin a doglike tail on it
3- Stand beside long enough to take picture (remember to adjust cam settings to "SD" so bear can be taken for dog, try not to end in bear stomach)

(tv theme starts here)

I've got 3 dogs. Jodie, Katie, and Tucker... The first 2 are poodles... depending where I fly, I usually take Jodie and Tucker... They love to run around as I fly and don't chase the planes... Katie has cataracts and is blind... So she stays home with the wife...

I have GS #2 ready enough for testing, can be connected to GS#1 for diversity or used by it's self for a much more compact arrangement.

yeah... it even says so on the steel ruler photo #2

I guess it is difficult to compare sizes but check the size against the Dremel, that box is not that big...
I don't know why I am thinking this used to be a barbie doll carrier . I almost expect it to be pink instead of transparent
