EIGHT SCREWS??????

OMG!

The shear lunacy of expecting anyone on their day off to have to deal with EIGHT screws is just unimaginable - what were they thinking? I mean really, this could take..... oh I don't know...... maybe a whole EIGHT minutes to complete. I mean REALLY! Who has time for that? .................................................. ...........................
.................................................. ...................... oh sorry for the delay, my cell phone was ringing and for some reason that appears to be annoying to the other people sitting here in this movie theater.

Now where were we? Oh yeah EIGHT MINUTES, err I mean SCREWS!!!!

Six - OK maybe if it's needed to keep the wings on, Seven is definitely approaching annoying, but EIGHT SCREWS!!!!! No wonder the world is in such a mess.

OK Sarcasm mode - Off.

This post was meant all in good fun guys, much like how we rag on each other at the flying field. Sometimes some perspective is good for the sole.

FWIW, the bottoms of my feet can handle 8 screws each (16 total, so I could even fly a biplane )... But my SOUL needs to hear some good blues music before I take on anythng over 2 screws. On that note, when I was a kid I could screw happily for hours, then I would just as happily unscrew for hours more.

I don't think we're talking about the same thing anymore.

I don't have a receiver battery, just the 1300 mAh running the power for everything...

Aros, thanks for another nice video. Now that my glider is scheduled for Thursday delivery I have to order one of these camera. Can you post a pic of how you are mounting the camera on your ASW-28.

Thanks, Jim
