Thanks for the vids. I can see what you mean about the camera. It looks like a foggy day. I love your description of the races too.

Thanks Foamaholic. I'm going to have to break down and read the manual on this thing I guess to see what I missed in the setup. Since I woke up early going to try to get a few more vids up before heading out to work.

Here's a round of P twins with "Team Red Bull" dominating the lead until Chris had a little mishap on the back straight. Lucky for me mine went safely under his when it flipped.

The "big dogs" come out to play with Brian's Sniper 45 and my 47" Promise Hobby mono. Brian's Sniper is just a little too fast for it's own good.

Another round of LSO with more boats and more carnage in the wind & chop.

More LSO action. I need to figure out what I did different here as this is probably the best looking video of the day.

Ran the Cheetah on 5s in Q today. If they decide to have a "synchronized crashing" event at the Olympics this year, Brian and I are ready for it.

Last one shot yesterday. Jeremy driving the Arapaho I sold him on a 6s 2p run. Watch closely around the 25 second mark. He get's style points for this one.

Think I have already found the issue with the blurry look.

Insert copy from page 47 of the manual.
On bright days or when recording very bright scenes, despite the iris being at its smallest aperture,
blurring of the image may occur. If this happens, using the ND filter should remove this problem.
Turn the ND filter on by pressing the ND FILTER ON/OFF button.
• ND is shown continuously in the display while the ND filter is turned on.
– ND ON flashes in the display to advise you to switch the ND filter on. (However it does not
appear in the Manual mode or during exposure lock.)
– ND ON with the “ON” flashing advises you to fit an external ND filter* or that the light
conditions are still too bright, despite having switched the ND filter on.
– ND OFF with the “OFF” flashing warns you that the ND filter is no longer suitable for the current
conditions. If this warning appears, turn the ND filter off by pressing the ND FILTER ON/OFF
button again.
* When you don’t have an external ND filter, make the shutter speed faster in Tv mode or open the
aperture in Av mode.
Notes:
• You cannot turn the ND filter on/off during exposure lock or while the PHOTO button is pressed
halfway down.
• The camcorder retains your selection if you turn the standby lever to LOCK. However, it resets to
the OFF setting if you slide the POWER switch to OFF.
End copy & paste

Best I recall it was flashing ND ON the whole time we were shooting. I thought it was just informing me that the filter was on. Turns out it was telling me to turn it on.

I noticed it was flashing ND ON when I was filming as well....

And yeah, that last LSO vid was MUCH clearer than the others.

I really like the Arapaho, and its why I got my big Dumas to start with. Tell me again, 1000kv 5692 on 6s2p??? Need some help in my 60" Dumas thread which I have re-titled as that.

That's RCKong's Sprintcat wiht one of the new Traxxas XO Castle 1717 1680 kv's in it. It hauls some serious a$$ on 6s 2p. It would never make a 4 minute heat but seems more efficient than the original 1717 1580 kv's like we have though.

And yep, it's the old 5692 1000 kv D wind motor I ran at the nats last year. Turnigy 180 set at 3.75 degrees. That's the best and coolest that motor has ever run. It's spinning a X457/3 for prop too. I had it set up and working pretty good when I sold it.

That's what happens when you spend all your time time working. Got to take a breather once in a while and have some fun.
At least you got to come out and play for a while last Sunday.
