Default cheap video

cvs has a disposable digital video recorder for thirty bucks.it runs twenty minutes of video and you return it and get a dvd for like five bucks.i strapped it on the cockpit of my boat and got some great footage.even if you flip the boat its the least of your worries at thirty dollars.just a heads up.i thought it was really cool

I wouldn't be too sure about that. Wren is what MHZ is using, in conjuction with an in-house made gearbox. A while back, some of us did some quick figuring and found that the MHZ/Wren combo put out just over 21K RPMs and had about the same torque and horse power specs as a Zen G26. It would be interesting, however, to see what it can actually do, though the run time will probably be considerably shorter than the G26

I just got to thinking. With the appetite a turbine has, a 43" hydro isn't going to have room for much fuel
