LOST! : less than 3km of Dinas Powys Common in Wales, UK, on 2013-08-18

On Oct 29th, we received this message from David W.:

“I lost my cousin’s wedding video on a GoPro camera mounted to a small white DJI Phantom helicopter/quadcopter.  It went down within 3 kilometers of Dinas Powys Common in Wales (near Cardiff), end of August 2013.  Reward and eternal gratitude if found!  Take a look at the DJI Phantom on Google and you’ll see what the helicopter holding the GoPro looks like. What’s ironic is, my dad lost his glider in the exact same heavy brush in Dinas Powys some 60 years before! Reward to whoever finds it! It has a U.S. Phone number on it, but I’m sure it’s stuck deep in hard to reach brush. Thank you! -David”

TIP: Tipp-Ex dots on longest screws

Dear reader,

A simple idea to pick the right screw every time…

You know, these are looking almost the same, but one is longer, in order to let you fix the extenders under the case… (or any accessories)

So to identify them for sure, I just added a small white dot of “TIPP-EX” TM (or from your wife’s French manicure set!) on the longest screws.

Using this simple tip (TIPP-EX? joke inside) I do not make any more the mistake!

Some pics of this are here:
