   this is my first post so I hope it works...
     Anyhow, I've just gotten a R/C model Heli. and am learning to fly it.
   Its a big sucker and can carry around 5 pounds, so I thought maybe I'd
hookup a video camera inside the canopy and shoot some scenery...  Does
anyone know where I could get a transmitter to get the sygnal from the
camcorder to a TV set on the ground (I'd build one but I don't have the
know-how yet...).
thanks in advance,
    The company that makes QuarkExpress is headed by a couple of Iranians
(or Iraquis - I forget...).  And they make it so Quark can't run under the
Hebrew version of Windows or MacOS so I changed the Itl0 resource in my
system file (I'm a mac guy, so shoot me...) so Quark thinks its running
under a U.S. system.
     Shorting all the fuses in my house except the one I did this on.
     Forcing a U.S. copy of the system software to work in Hebrew in 2
lines of code.
