U4D... great video and nice flying! Can't wait to have some weather like that here. Brrrrrrrrr.... lol

Question for you... can you tell me what kind of trees those are in the background with the long straight trunk and foliage just at the top? (I'm an amature Bonsai enthusiast and one of those would make a great specimen.)

Hi and yes, enjoying the weather for sure. Re trees, I'll try to find out. Yes, they are great trees. For the first time, yesterday, I got my Skywing Edge pretty close to the top of one of those. It would have stayed there for some time. They are massive. Taming them would be useful!! Rick

Still cold out, but my fingers had enough in them for a quick fix of Crack, just one pack, no fancy editing, just a bit of fun.

Old, crunchy, brittle Welders


I did a few quick searches but didn't find the answer.

What do you guys do when Welders gets hard and crunchy? It seems to lose its flexibility & get brittle over time. I recall something about using acetone to remove it.... Is there a way to just soften it so it'll be pliable again? I'm mainly concerned with hinge repair, e.g. the rudder. Any better glue that'll stay soft?

Thanks,
Charles

Well I've looked through about 100 different threads. Take my advice folks if your having trouble with your Gopro never type in gopro. You get more hits than you can read. So I just decided to come here and ask. The sound quit working on my hero 3. I thought maybe I turned something off by mistake. I gave up looking through and reading all the threads i found when I did the search. Any ideas guys? Thanks.

Tom, I've had problems with my go pro too. I'm already on the 2nd one. I still have an issue with mine in that occasionally it won't start. Ie press on and it hangs.
I think they have lots of problems. Especially with software.
Have you upgraded to the latest firmware using go pro hero centre?

Mike, it's my long term winter slope project, just ready for painting now.

Very nice, I'm guessing from the primer/filler on the flying surfaces, that you are going to spray them? You have made a nice job of that
