So I was looking, like I do, and talking to a friend about you. I noticed something else interesting here: tell me about your "stump & putty" system. I feel like you would judge me for not having that, after considering it for a relatively short time.
Is it just a round piece of wood, and some kind of low tack sticky stuff? Do you have 2 or 3 of them for wire extensions, and other sprawling systems that need soldering?

Hi. Its a lead sample i found , from the local galina mine , the mine closed 60 years ago, but some of the brighter locals were using the tailings for driveways and playgrounds and house foundations up untill the early 80s, I kid you not ,Made a big mess . the government spent millions cleaning it up just last year.
Yes it is wall or poster putty on the top and i use it exactly as you say.

That's cool. I need something like that in my life.
Speaking of unhealthy affections for lead: I LOVE the smell of the soldering smoke when I'm building/repairing. It's so hard for me to keep myself from breathing it. Everyone I talk to about it tells me I should NOT be breathing it.

What frame is this? Is this a Yukon Gold? Or that Idahoan Red brand?

You should perhaps upgrade to TaterFlight 4.2 - so long as you don't make a hash of the upgrade, it will give you very crisp results, will chip off your lap times, and mash the competition - but be warned it can fry your board, so be careful not to jack-et up. (Ok, that last one was a stretch... But let's face it, you started it!)

To get it frying right should i use crincle or strate cut settings in the par boil tab,
Tater flight makes it a bit starchy and the fork feel isnt quite right

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
