    Critique my work guys, I have 2 critiques, my camera orienting wasn't smooth and the wind made me have to fight to stay on course ending up in either zig zaggy flying or not flying the course I wanted.

    Sup TW,

    My wife and I recently purchased a home in Colorado with a 23 year-old furnace that finally pooped out on us in the last several days.

    (Question to all the HVAC pros)
    I am assuming that the control board may need to be replaced as a quick fix, as the inducer fan seems to be cycling on and off from the relay constantly tripping.
    I also know that the furnace is likely on its last leg anyways, so purchasing a new one is the inevitable.
    Upon receiving an out-the-door quote from a technician for a 2-stage variable 80% AFUE furnace to be installed at $8400.

    [Some key information that I find relevant to the pricing]
    1) The furnace is located in a small attic, with the access panel to the attic barely clearing the space to move both furnaces.
    2) Overall install time will likely be longer because of #1
    3) Permit to install furnace because it is a natural gas-sourced furnace
    4) Likely will be charged to hauling and disposal for old furnace

    Furthermore, the company is requiring that a commitment to pay 50% of the total cost up front prior to the install to "get the ball rolling." I will be doing more legal research for the state of Colorado on legalities for this.

    Overall, I am wondering if I am being ripped off for the price considering the circumstances of my situation. Not to mention, it is COLD outside! I will be looking to everyone's input!

    hey Great video! Wind is none controllable, But i would say in some shots with the sand the lighting seemed off but they could have just been my laptop. Maybe play with the ISO? Other than that loved the ocean and pier fly bys!

    I’ll try playing with the ISO, I haven’t played with the video settings very much, mainly the still shot settings.
    Thanks! There are a lot of opportunities for cool Ariel shots along the coast.

    It's totally understandable for them to want 50% up front. I wouldn't go into someone's home and do major surgery only to have them stiff me in the end. Working in the construction business, homeowners or rather residential work is notorious for that sort of thing. Regarding the price, I have no idea if that's fair or not, maybe get a couple more quotes and see for yourself?

    I can only offer 2 pieces of advice, get multiple quotes, and whomever you go with get a written contract.

    I wouldn’t let the 50% upfront throw you, for a smaller business it’s not that uncommon, if you get a written agreement that outlines that half is paid upfront “if” they were to rip you off it would make a court case much easier.

    My cousin ran one for a little while before going with the inspire and now he has a full “industrial” setup from DJI, I’m happy with the 3 even though it’s a little older.

    Buy a used karma.

    Or, since the Mavic 2 line came out you can find used Mavic pro’s around 5-600

    Biggest thing I noticed is that the gimbal isn’t completely level. Find yourself a spot that’s perfectly level and recalibrate the Gimbal. I have the same issue, but for me it’s way more noticeable. Mines tilted left a solid 8-10°

    Will do, thank you, I’m too drawn into the flying feeling to notice that it wasn’t level, usually stuff like that bothers me.

    I have a GoPro 3 I think, haven’t used it in years but between the GoPro and phantom I could put together a pretty cool video.

    Ah yes as expected the bushings were seized to the camber sleeve but we got the bolts out. Then had to do a little cutting..now waiting till tomorrow to take the LCAs pressed out and new ones in..

    hmmm seems I’ve been searching the wrong key words in order to find this thread. There’s a teens, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s thread but no 20’s:rofl: didn’t think to search “under” 30’s
