Hey, I recently got a gopro hero2 and it has been fine until now. It now refuses to turn on unless i remove the battery and get lucky. Once I get it to turn on it will run fine until I turn it off, at which point I have to try it all again. I have read a fair bit about this or similar problems online. Some say to send it back and others say try to do a firmware update. I have contacted gopro, but in the mean time, has anyone one here had similar issues?
Cheers, Josh

I just ordered a couple of the standard volt version and some of the turnigy 777s (mks rip off).
I reckon the coronas will be great buying for only ten bucks!

didn't know exactly where to post.... well..just showing you guys my last wing for Dsing

AVB will say: "you should never build a DS wing without filling up and messing everything inside with Ampreg"
But I don't have this stuff here and the most main fact I won't use for now, our most windy days here is 40km/h
So.. I did it as standart moulded wing, but reinforced to DS abuse...

layers:
- paint
- 25g fiberglass
- 6oz carbon
- 51 Roahcell
- 6oz carbon

also, you can see my shearweb (it's the balsa x carbon x balsa x carbon x balsa x carbon... that's join both halves in the spar) I put a lot of material in there, it's a 2cm width in most part, in the middle of the wing I use 2cm from shearweb + 2cm plywood (cause here is where the screw go throught the wing), I put more carbon string in the spar as well.

I think it will weight 1 Kg out of the moulds, let's see

Now I have to pray to Wind Gods

Cheers buddy,
André

Aww thats Sexy! I did the same weight layup but with glass and 1.5mm balsa cores and a carbon sock shear web and its good for 200 with no flex. Yours should be great!
