Don't worry Brian. You'll be needing a lot more now anyway. How many GWS warbirds are there?

Thanks..

I'm going to go out on a limb and say those pics SOP posted are from HIS wingdragon, and not WG1.

I think Tim is still working on some details on shipping, and a possible break in price from a global shipper.

Awwww , you guys are too kind , the pictures are bad , but the flight went well because of the low cam weight , also it was a low light day and this cam doesn't like that
Yes this is my Wing Dragon , jest trying things fer when WG1 gets here
Airhead we can move to an A/P thread if you want to , but I dont think we are too much off topic , cause this is for WG1
Shot 6 is a flock of white cocky's that flew thru MY flight path :<
The last one is just a shot of a reisivour, resivour, res,....Dam... early in the morn just to see how the cam take a shot like that
These are the good shots apart from 5 which snuck in there...I will post shot of the cam ect on plane later 2day

Dave, FWIW, as far as I care, if you are posting something to save us money, you are ON TOPIC! Regardless of the original topic.

If anyone complains, you send 'em to me. I'll call my uncle Tony Soprano.

Hey SOP,
that looks really good, Did the setup cost much? Pretty good engineering on your part.... So, you have a servo on its own channel, on and off I guess.

The mount cost next to nothing , cam from Hong Kong $95
The cam is on aux channel , flick a switch - take a shot
Naah , just basic work , Im disappointed in the quality , so will try my canon IXUS 30
