So I buys a "Craig" Digital video camera at CVS for 39. bux (almost killed me to spend that much) Valcroed it to my old motorcycle helmut. Seems to work O.K., better than my old one. EDIT : I think the normal price is 49.---it was on sale, it takes 2 double A batteries and comes with a memory card. It plugs directly into a usb port on your PC or Laptop to transfer video's.

Nice flying Doug and the camera performs very well. You say you picked up that camera at CVS? I may have to drop by my local CVS and have a look at that camera.

Your right Zaw, It doesn't sound like a K3 or even my old King 2 and I don't know why exactly. I'm using the stock 3900 KV motor with a HD 11 tooth steel pinion <----makes it sound a little different, opposed to the brass ones. Also using the aftermarket maingears (3.99 for 2 black ones) the white K2 maingears I thought were quieter. That canopy is a old thick plastic 450 canopy that was cut down but It seems to act like an echo chamber of sorts.<----its my "lucky canopy", it has POS written on it and in two years I have never crashed with that perticular canopy, that cannot be said for any other canopy I ever had
Since getting this cheapo camera we haven't had a sunny day since so I am assuming the picture quality will be even better with the Sun shining. Heres one from Sunday, a cold, cloudy, dismal,windy day

That's true you get something new to try with you're heli and the weather is on the way.

Crazy to fly my new fuse and the rain dos not stop.

Here a vid second flight but that's it to much rain.

(pin striping) don't know what is that?
About the paint used a spray can that a shop closed to the crib makes them for $20.buck all included gloss and the paint real easy.its like a maple red with a touch of blood.
