I had a Hero 3 I think but the ex took it when she split. Might need to buy a new one at some point.
I think I have a 2, 5 and 7. The 2 doesn’t work. The other two are great unless it’s 104 degrees in Moab and it keeps overheating and shutting down. But then so did my drone.

I have a 2 as well, it also does not work. Really been digging the hero 9 specs...
The 7 is really good even have a gimbal for the daughter to use. I've been tempted everytime I get an email to get the new one but I can't use the full functionality of any of my working ones.

I'm in! My Jeep is still in a whole bunch of pieces, so injured reserve is a good call. View attachment 241909
@NashvilleTJ No need to be sad...baby just gotta have some work done. Butt lift, some replacement pieces and parts, couple superhero upgrades thrown in. You remember the $6,000,000 man, right? Think of it like that! LOL

I've never had any luck trying to get my drones to work right but I've also never bought one of the "BETTER" ones. I have the cheap $30-60 ones off Amazon.

Buying a Hero or drone isn't important until I get the Jeep fixed and driving. I use to wear mine on my helmet with my quads.
But that was it. I think I used it once on my Harley and never in my Jeep.

Make some pickles and send them to JJVW


FACTS OF THE DAY ....
Cucumbers... I didn't know this... and to think all these years I've only been making salads with the cucumbers...
1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.
2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.
3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.
4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.
5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!
6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!
7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.
8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water.
9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!
10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.
11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemicals will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.
12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your taps, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the
shine, but is won't leave streaks and won't harm you fingers or fingernails while you clean.
13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

DJI drones are really good, no comparison there.

The hero 2 seemed good but mounted on my Raptor 700R bumper it was pretty much useless. Now technology really made a difference but we approach diminishing returns and bump into computer processing capabilities with the video sizes.
