Re: GoPro3

We were going to use mine for the LOHAN test flights last summer. It failed horribly before we launched - wouldn't even start up, even with known fully charged battery.

Since then it's been fine, but I can't ever trust it again.

Re: I love the sight of the pink bondage tape

That's Anthony Stirk's pink gaffer tape. It's a regular feature on flights. Quite what he does with it in the privacy of his own home I know not.

Little fluffy clouds

How appropriate that your lovely cloud panoramas are juxtapositioned with an ad for ... cloud.

spiffy camera

with the image stitching done onboard and on the fly, that's pretty slick. If I could think of sufficient justification, I might have to stump for one of those. Perhaps internal mapping of my secret bunker complex for the brochure...

Nice stills, but can it compensate for spinning?

When are you going to mount one of those cameras on a propeller beanie and show Google what wearable computing can be?
