Is that as short as it appears to be?

Culling the Oshkosh 2012 herd and ran across this shot of the Sub Sonex. This struck me as being a pretty snappy go buggy...



Heading up to Chicago for the weekend, friends are gathering, and we're watching one of our favorite bands together at Ballydoyles. Figured I'd check in before I get on the road. New kitten in town

Jay or anybody,

What is with the "beer cans" strapped to the wing tip of the Sub Sonex?

"Puck" the gentleman on my left here, is one of three people in the world that can give you an LOA (a sort of type rating) in a T-38, or an F5, or a number of other very fast yard darts. He's a humble, dear human being with credentials few possess. He's one of those guys like Bud Anderson, a super fellow, but all business when he straps on a fighter. Steve and I became very close when Glenn was lost. He was the one who called me from the accident site. He stayed with Glenn over night in the field when the NTSB wouldn't remove him from the L39 until the next day. I arranged Glenn's cremation and Puck picked him up in his L39 and flew him back to meet up with the rest of the team and a Citation, then they all flew here. Puck and I coordinated a hundred little details, all of which resulted in first class treatment of Glenn and his memorial. In the process we became good friends and that process continues.

Looks like the Hero3 is living up to its name!

Thanks Gero. Gratefully, some long glass let me maintain a safe distance from that very expensive toaster

Roger that Glenn. I ordered some cool mounts today to get me some perspectives that the GoPro mounts alone won't allow. The beta testing will continue My feeling right now is that I need to replace my three Hero/Hero2 boxes with Hero 3 Blacks, giving me five of the H3 Blacks.

One does need extended battery packs because the H3 won't run a full hour before it goes toes up on the standard battery. This is a small negative given the plus column which includes a great wifi remote system, a variety of frame rates, a lens that is a considerable improvement over earlier models, and much better low light capability.

One has to put this in perspective though, the very first Hero is still a technological wonder and allows captures that were pretty much impossible before it's invention. The H3 is just an amazing evolution of the original. The menus are much easier to run through, as is the general operation. I've got everything GoPro organized in one Stormcase so I can pop it open and configure five views of something in pretty short order. I have several audio cables and adapters enroute to, as the H3 is stronger in that area as well.

Pretty cool all in all. I guess that's why the California surfer dude who thought it up went from wondering how he was going to pay his rent, to head of a privately held company worth 2.5 billion, in less than three years.

Your posts are making me wonder how i'm going to pay MY rent!

What a great week this was! - air 2 air with Sukhoi, Baron, and AH1, 2 hard aerobatic flights in the Sukhoi and 1 in a T6, along with flying 7 different types (C162, C172, A36, B58, KingAir100, Sukhoi Su-29 and a T6) whew!

Very thankful and looking forward to what the next week will bring..


edit for TOP:

The Hero2 version1 is still going strong! (if the Sukhoi wasnt so dang rattly!)

Here's a question for the technologically adept in our group. All of a sudden my network at home got ridiculously slow. I've rest, rebooted, checked connections etc., and there's no improvement. I'm using the same Lynksis router and wifi router that I bought 14 years ago when we built our home and maybe it is just giving up the ghost and needs to be replaced. It doesn't matter if I shut off the wifi on my laptop and use a cat 5 cable, or I use wifi. Transfer speeds that typically show minutes in process, now sit there and spin the beach ball, then finally show hours.

I ran a test tonight. These numbers are ridiculously slow, aren't they? What's up?

I think I might head to Fry's in the am and replace my router and wireless router. I can't live with what's going on for very long.

Glenn's week would make a great YEAR in my book...

Sorry Jim, I got nuthin' on the home network. I know I had to swap out my modem and router about a year ago simply because the local cable company started pumping so much more data down the pipeline that my old Linksys just couldn't hang anymore. Unfortunately, in my case, it only helped the througput to the wider world with little to no effect on my internal digit passing. Wonderful that out of Glenn's loss, you've found a new friend. Funny how life works sometimes, eh?

I always smile when you post shots of Chandler because that's the name of my part of greater Phoenix.

Capping it off with just a straight B&W conversion. The Superstition Mountains in the background are totally invisible in the original color image. Not sure where Silver Effex finds extra pixels, but I'll take 'em where I can get 'em!
