(The good news is that the FPV transmitter had longer range than my DX7!) I will be trying again this summer. Let me know when you are ready, and I will be happy to help you NOT make the same mistakes I made.

I have lots of experience with this, and I highly recommend against it. I'm shutting down my web site, and everything will be discounted for immediate sale. Please contact me if interested. The rest will go on eBay -- auctions will start at one cent, with no reserve.

Again, I highly recommend against this. Call me and we can talk about it at length -- we may need to talk about it over lunch, to give me enough time to paint a full picture for you.

Guy, if you are going to let the stuff go at below cost, you should post a list here on the Unclub thread. You could put the item with your bottom price, and we could post bids. You could set a two week deadline, and the highest bid takes the item. This way, you get at least your bottom price, and maybe more. You don't have to cover shipping because it's local. If no one bids then you can sell it on eBay.
Just a thought.

Yes! Post a list on here! I have a lot of friends that want to get into rc flying, and I'm sure you'd have no problem selling it all here! Either way let us know what you decide to do, so I'll know where to find and bid on your items.

Thanks for your support, guys -- There are WAY too many items to list here (about 1,000 items in stock, and multiples of most items). Just go to the web site (www.KarglUSA.com) and send me an e-mail with your offer.

I can't accept all offers, but I will certainly entertain any offers -- my original plan was to start at 10% discount, then (after a month or so) go to 20% discount, then see where it goes from there... At 20% discount, the sales price will already be below my cost.

So, let's try to keep the offers at a 10% discounted rate for the first month, please.

Oh -- one more thing. I would be willing to accept a single price for everything I have in stock. If you are interested in this, please send me an e-mail, and I will send you a list of all items currently in stock.

thank you,
Guy

Hey guy, the Bald Eagle RC club is hosting a swap meet this Saturday the 24th, in Glenpool. You should take all of your stuff there. I think its $5 for table space. I think it's going to be in the buildings to the west of the new Wal-Mart. I'm hoping there is a sign up at Hobby Town, I can't find anything on the Web.

Swap meet tomorrow, in Glenpool. West of the super Wal-Mart, at Hwy 75 and 121 st. 7am till noon. All 30 tables are about sold. Come and pick up some good deals. I know it's going to be a good flying day, but swap meets are few and far between, besides, we have all afternoon to fly, and indoors Saturday night. See you there.

Should be a good swap meet, I'm taking alot of stuff. I hope there is some room to fly indoors. If not, I'm taking the Xtra Slick to fly outdoors.


Kendall you here yet, we need some new combat blood!

I'm here, but my house is a mess, my shop is a mess and my planes are a mess. It'll take the rest of the week to dig out from under the moving trash and reorganize. I still can't even find my box of batteries. I should be good for next Saturday morning though.

You didn't miss much. We had a rainy week, then the best, calmest Saturday we've had all year. They all decided to fly instead of comming to the swap meet. I had about $600 of stuff priced to sell, and I only made $120.

I still have my Stryker for $75 BNF, the Adrenaline Rush for $65 BNF, the Z-22 for $50 BNF, the brushless Losi Mini T for $75 with 2.4 tx RTR.
I'm also selling my Polaris for $200 BNF with 2-3 cell 1600 lipo's. I have older lipo's that I will give away with the planes, and about 8 for the mini t.

Do you think the Assassin will fly with this on it.

Don't worry Surfer, I will be your wingman for your photo mission. You can draw Funtana in close with your camera and BOOM, I'll take him out. Like a turkey shoot!! It'll be great!!

Happy Bday

Wow! You'll LOVE it Brett! I predict that after a couple of flights you'll even come to prefer that wide angle /fish-eye view!

Here's my last flight with the HERO2....

With your flying skills, no telling what you'll come up with with that camera setup!

Congrats! And Happy Birthday!

Thanks Doug!
What is a good cheap editing software to use with it? I would like something to be able to do slow mo, and time laps with.

I'm already having a blast with it. I love the head strap. I also bought the HDMI cable so that I could playback on my TV. I may also buy the LCD backpack, it would be nice for still photos, to see what your shooting at.
I took some photos, of a flower at 1" away, the detail is amazing, and the 170fov gives a neat look when your that close.
I'm gonna put it in the air today, on my Radian, and the Assassin.
You should come the the Unclub today. It's gonna be a great day!

Brett, check out message #4120 in this thread for the editing software.....

Yeah, I finally got my Radian balanced properly carrying the GoPro yesterday. Solid as a rock now. I was surprised I didn't need as much tail ballast as I thought to counter the camera and mount. Here's the panning camera mount I made. I put a 180 degree servo extender and a 6 second rate reducer on it. And I love the GoPro head strap too. I made a little adapter for it so I can mount my Lumix FX78 on it for a head camera. Works great.

I drove my little EPP Hacker P-51 into the ground yesterday and totally destroyed it. Sigh.... Just too low, too fast and I was too slow on the elevator. Was a nice flying little airplane too.

Yesterday's flight with the Radian and the HERO2

Didn't make it out this morning. I stayed up to almost 4AM last night so was snoozing away.

Vegas movie studio HD platinum, or Vegas movie studio HD 11?

I took some great vids today, but the files are too big to load here, or I just don't know what I'm doing.

I bought the HDMI cable, to that I could watch the vids on my HD 46" TV. Awesome!!!
I think I will also get the LCD backpack, so I can use it as a regular point and shoot. I would be nice to see what I'm aiming at, and to watch the vids in the field.
We need to get together, and put the Radians up together.
