Interesting. 1080p is good enough for me.

It is 1080p. It's all about the bandwidth and compression artifacts. Blocking, motion, etc. There's 1080p and then there's 1080p. But that's a subject for A/V Science forums!

Cool. Watching my "downloaded" stuff at 720 or 1080p and 5.1 or greater makes me happy. Can't complain about the price.

As I have worked my way out of HK products into "name brand goodies" I have been developing a relationship with my LHS.

In doing so I have great confidence that when I pry my wallet open (allowing GIANT moths to be free) if I get a lemon I can take it back.

I wonder if I will end up with luck like yours and get a good 'un???

All the best!

If you don't then you can always take it back i guess. I posted a review video on YouTube so you can see how it flies. A lot of folks are having legitimate problems

I really like this unboxing/flight test video of yours, Jasmine, but I truly hope you tamed that NASTY tail vibe at 10:40 or so into the video when you first spool it up. Ouch. That resonant noise and vertical tail fin vibe is painful to see, even though you "think" it may have gone away at higher RPMs.

That is exactly the stuff that destroys parts/bearings over time. Even if one doesn't see/hear vibes like that it in flight...it's there...at a much higher frequency... No matter what Horizon says, it is NOT "normal".

I am afraid to find out how much I have sank into this one... The guy at the hobby shop asked me the other day how my 130 x was.. I sighed... then he laughed (while I was buying another $50.00 worth of parts) and said your in here every day buying parts for it.

A $20.00 part is nothing if it keeps you from having to buy two $12.00 parts a week.

No doubt there, I went through a ton of blade holders for my msrx before I broke down and got the mh alum one. Also Mcpx alum swash. Worth every penny.

I was seriously mad when they canceled both those shows..

I'm looking forward to a failing memory as I age, I will get to watch the series again like it was new..lol

Firefly got cancelled. BSG ran its originally intended story arc. They planned to end it. It was not cancelled. That's even worse!

I find that with books too.

"Wow, it's as if I never have read this book before"!

It reminds me of a dark joke about the good thing about having Alzheimer's, "You can hide your own Easter eggs".
