Runcam FPV camera – product of the month

If your looking for a cost effective onboard FPV HD recording solution the Runcam unit could be the right fit for you, a fraction of the cost of a GoPro with 1080P resolution. Bright Orange color makes it easy to find in the event of a crash.

I’ve been flying a Mobius action cam for years and I would consider the Runcam the technical successor to the mobius.

3M Worktunes AM/FM & headphone jack (product of the month)

I’ve been using my 3M Worktunes headphones AM/FM radio & headphone jack for over a month at work around some loud equipment.

I know some people use ear buds under there normal headphones however the 3M product line is a good turn key solution. They offer a bunch of different versions however I liked the combo of AM / FM radio with a conventional headphone jack and 2 AA batteries. Other combos include AM / FM with blue tooth and blue tooth only versions.

The frequency, AM/FM and channel pre sets all have audio feedback from a computerized voice. It’s a nice feature so you don’t have to take them off just to change the channel.

https://radio-locator.com/cgi-bin/locate is a free web site where you can find close by FM & AM radio stations near you. This can help speed up the process when setting up your presets.

Rocketeer 27 x 40 Movie poster (Art Deco Version) (Product of the month)

One of my favorite Aviation movies was the Rocketeer, it’s a well done & original comic book movie, 2 decades before Marvel & DC flooded the market with big budget movies.

This is a picture of my poster going out to the shop, I find it inspirational & the date reminds me of simpler times.

I got the frame from Michaels Crafts but it can also be purchased from Amazon

The original movie poster was an Art Deco styled version and has become quite collectable. To help the movie get better traction they came up with a 2nd version that featured the main actors including the main box office draw Timothy Dalton, who was the current 007 before he was replaced in 1995’s Golden Eye.
