  1. I finally decided yesterday that it was time to start getting some batteries charged and some cameras checked out and ready to roll. Hoping to have 4 or 5 out by the end of the weekend. And hope to have some pictures or video of the droptine to share in a week or two. Come on Paul you need to get some cameras out as well. Just wouldn't be as fun if we can't compare results. I won't even cover the magic apple trees just to give ya a fighting chance. Bow season just over a month away for us here in WI
  2. Very nice build, I like it. I am surprised more people don't do the solar thing. Your panel must be one of the type that does put out some power even in shade. Most don't. Now just to bust your nuggets a little. I can see from your schematic why your set up is so efficient. There is no camera to draw power or set the slave off. I assume possibly another TP4056 to 18650 to camera fed from the buck step down covers the camera.
  3. Hey Paul, I thought you were just hiding. Afraid I was going to tell you to pull them cameras out, so I could beat you once again at finding them better bucks. Like everyone else work is keeping me busy. Have been enjoying watching the dirt track racing as usual. I do not have any cams out yet, but have seen a couple decent deer. I do have a main frame 10 that is about 17" wide with one split G2 and about an 8" droptine that I see regularly. I should try to get some pictures or video of him. My current obsession is working up loads for a .243 Win. It is more fun to play with then the .300 magnums that I normally shoot. Also delving deeper in tiny group reloading instead of just getting to 1" and saying that will smack the crap out of them out to 350 yards.... good enough.
  4. Will take a pile of corn to keep them buggers and the deer happy.
  5. Sad news indeed. Out of the blue 212 popped into mind last week. Wondered how he was doing. He was smart beyond compare to most on here, yet could dumb down explaining everything to where us less knowledgeable could understand what he was telling us. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Rest in peace my friend.

  7. Worked well
  8. I can't believe how bad Photobucket crippled us with taking away free photo link sharing for free members. We lost hundreds of instructional and fix pictures. And hack pictures. We lost lots of hack videos as well. Most I am sure not to be replaced. It really just makes me sad I guess.
  9. Two thumbs up. Very nice build.
  10. I prefer protected batteries and unprotected holders. If I have a problem with a battery I can swap it in a second and be back in business. If a protected holder goes bad you are out of action for a while. As far as holders for protected batteries. I take a blue plastic electrical outlet/switch box and cut the sides, top, and back out of it. Then cut the pieces into strips about a half inch longer then the holder. Then take my unprotected holder and cut it in half using a dremel tool with a cut off wheel. Set the two holder pieces on the blue plastic strip. Insert spacer between the pieces (nylon washer from SSI) GOOP it together. Remove washer when done. Your mileage may vary!!
  11. Just for clarification. I believe the tinsel that bobopool is referring to is tinfoil.
  12. Amazing pictures as usual. Great variety to boot.
  13. Camera arrived quickly and seems to be working great. Very nice workmanship in this build!!
  14. I will take the s600 build for $50. PM me your PayPal info please.
  15. Awesome as always.
