Thanks Ken for the web site. I am wondering though how long the batteries last (could always carry extra batteries)? Will the batteries last for a marathon & how do you have it attached to your bike?
Someone on this forum had recommend the Sanyo eneloop AAA Ni-MH Rechargeable Batteries. I bought and use these. They last a fairly long time..maybe 1.5-2 hrs. But, of course, I carry a backup set just in case. Also, for longer course, I turn the video scope off between splits. With my Garmin GPS, I know when I am approaching another split and just turn on my scope then.
As someone had suggested on this forum, I purchased and install aerobars on my bike. Took off the arm pad and replace with a velcro covered metal sheet. By using velcro, I can quickly change around what I want to use. Clipboard with velcro. Or, my small printing calculator with velcro. Have not put velcro on bottom of my video scope but, of course, could do so. As per the picture below, I have the video scope tied down with a velcro strap and with a plastic tie down through the hole at end of scope.
For the camera, I use a rubber coated twist-tie. These are great to have around for mounting/holding various items to bike.
