RE: We all need friends like this

Wow, didn't intend to create this kind of concern. Since it was all bleeped out, I didn't think there was an issue. Like others have posted, I don't like nor use the bleeped language used in the...

RE: What type of Rx batteries do you use?

Also not on the list. I started using A123 batteries on the recommendation of XPS, the company whose 2.4 gear I use. They work great, don't loose there charge last for lost of flights.

RE: Tips for shooting in-flight videos
