I just received the geographic seal of trivia approval from Google Maps by getting 27 questions correct. Jealous?
Google Maps Smarty Pins
I came, I pinned, I conquered. I played Smarty Pins and scored 27. See if you can get better.

looks good, but, I havent had much luck, i.e. good luck, with using any type of finish or varnish/poly-urethane on top of redwood....  too much acids in the woods, along with too much movement in the wood...

Please let us know how that holds up over time...and how difficult it will be to refinish...

i like your 'style' of reporting/discussing products.. but, I believe your 'logic' is flawed with regards to resellers, specifically, Hobbyking... assuming your numbers are correct, and that there are a large number of working products vs DUDs, then a reseller should accept the product back and either ship out another product, or issue a refund or a credit, (after they receive the product back in their 'possession'.

that 'possession' should be after they have the ability to verify that the product in question is in fact inside the box that you shipped.

and after receipt of that defective product, they should also refund the cost of shipping and handling...as it is nothing that the customer did wrong.

this differs from returning products that work, but just not meeting the customers' satisfaction, i.e. no questions asked policy.

in the case of a defective product, the customer should not 'absorb' any cost, as they did nothing wrong... attributing a 'cost' to a customer, as a matter of 'it happens sometimes' is not acceptable...

if I drop the radio while unpacking, then yea, sh!t happens...

but, Hobbyking, and other resellers make money off each item sold... if they start having to pay for a large percentage of 'defects' then they get to choose whether or not to keep on selling/profiting off that 'junk'... if there is no incentive to do the 'right thing', then they will keep on KNOWINGLY, selling junk...

bottom line is that customers need to support other customers first and foremost... while keeping resellers and manufacturers honest.   

most folks arent 'rich', and when it comes to this or any hobby, that is 'disposable' money, but not that it should be tossed into the trash, but that the products we choose to spend it on, is valued as something that we saved up and worked hard to get...

ultimately, I hope you appreciate my comments and position, because your 'style' is being honest, normal reporting.. like the guy next door type of reporting...

when you allow hobbyking and frsky to get away with accepting responsibilty, you come off 'either' as being a rich snob, or that you are biases towards those companies... and  technically, according to you, you are supported by taranis...as they 'sent' you that radio.

If I were you, I would disclose that info, (which you did), I would then 'test out the product', and then give it away...or sell it and give the money away....

anyways, the biggest thing I have learned in life is that no one does things like I would do things.... and although I accept that, doesnt mean I dont keep on trying to convince others to things better...

good luck...

i have always had an afinity towards sign language... I recall the first time I saw people signing, and wanted to learn, but didnt..

then I met someone in school who was deaf, but still didnt learn...(but wanted).

then I had a daughter, (many, many years later), and she is profoundly, hard of hearing... 70-80% hearing loss, (but, she is mainstream and vocal)

I tried my best to get her to learn to sign, but she didnt want to, and neither did her mother support that effort.... I dont think she thinks of herself as 'deaf'.... Im not sure why... or if she really is 'deaf'; or just hard of hearing, or if h.h. is deaf or if deaf is hh...

I did learn to sign when she was younger... I went to jr. college, and community classes.. I think I became 'ABLE; to communicate, but was never 'proficient'.

as you can see above, I have a lot of 'quote'/apostrophes... in most of this discussion, and I think that is part of the problem... many labels, and my daughter didnt want to be labeled... I agree that she shouldnt be 'identified by something / anything, but didnt think being deaf is a label, no more then being a guy or gal or human or dog or nearsighted or blind....or short / tall...

anyways, to the point....(hehehe)... I have forgotten the little bit of signing that I knew... and thank you for posting some asl videos and wish I could meet more deaf folks/friends and relearn the signing again.

Great show, thanks. But I think it was poor form to call out the author of that message about "... needing another video... " by name and picture.

I agree with every comment you made and probably thought... But I would not have shown his picture or name. I probably would have reached out to him after the show by tele and talk with him...

Anyways, thanks again for another video. Keep then coming

+The Wood Whisperer Exactly. If you want to bitch on the net about a guy doing a great public service then yeah you may get called out. Folks Marc and his wife work pretty darn hard to provide a largely FREE service here. What is there to complain about? If you dont like it dont tune it. Geez.
