Thomas,

I saw your reply to my VIRB question. I saw the video you posted. very impressive.  

Did you buy the "aviator package" or did you buy the Virb Elilte and add the headset jack yourself?

 

I have decided to go with the VIRB but I think that $450 for the "aviation package" seems a bit steep. I compared what the package includes and have decided to get the Virb Elite, the aviation headset jack and the larger SD card all a la carte. I'm not as concerned about the prop filter at this time because I want it mainly to record the panel during my phase I tests.   Through Amazon those three items totalled about $320.00. Basically it comes down to ~$130.00 for the prop filter

 

I know the Elite includes altimeter and heading and I wonder if your video displayed that information because it was the aviator package or if it displayed it simply because it's the Elite.

 

Your Thoughts??

Hello,

I live in Severn and had the same problem on both of my wings, which Caleb said is not normal. If you have at least one wing complete, I would like to see it if possible. The problem is with the root skin installation on my CH750 kit.

Thanks, Jim Depfer
