I've never heard cameras called glass. I guess it makes it sound hard.

I've heard these called glass.

News on the block is they have a cool lens coming out for that model of Kodak.

It looks a little heavy.

And PC's still slay Macs in market share. Just says what the "masses" buy.

New? How new? The latest warbird offering from H9 is the Messerschmitt Bf 109F.

The lens, is "the glass"

Definitely though, if you hold the camera sideways it makes you look even harder.

Calling lens glass among photography community is a common word, it is just like we call our transmitter/controller a radio.

Starter Heli - $630 new, nitro 50 size / 600 ARF super combo

I was reading my RC Heli Pilot magazine on the plane to SFO today, saw an ad for 'new' Raptor 50S and a full review of it. This is a 50 size nitro heli (about same size as my Fusion) with everything except RX and RX battery for $630.

Wow, how are they doing that? Airframe, 600mm blades, 5 MG servos, 50 size engine, muffler, governor, gyro for $630? Plus a lot of the assembly work is done.

The answer is old school (proven) technology: flybar, wooden main blades, mechanical collective pitch mixing, and lots of plastic (frame, canopy, blade grips, and so forth).

Its being marketed as a beginner's heli, capable of aerobatics, and even some 3D. I think its a great idea. I think this old school 600 size heli would be better for learning to fly a heli than the twitchy micros or even 450 park flyer size helis; particularly if one is comfortable with nitro.
