LunchCast – Apple Watch IOS 2 upgrade fix – Stuck verifying

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

It took about an hour to download the IOS on Monday the 21’st.  It then paused saying I needed to have my watch plugged into the charger.  Went home, plugged in the charger and waited another hour for it to verify.  It felt like it was stuck.  I tried this 3 more time and it would stick on verification.  Today I decided to reboot both my phone and the watch.  I actually did a full power down on both devices.  Launched the update again and this time it began installing.  It even showed an update status on the watch face.  This took about an hour to complete.  Now my watch is fully updated.


It takes 550mb of space.  Make sure you have enough room on your phone and watch.

You need your watch charger to do the actual update, even if you are fully charged.  In fact, your watch must be at 50% or higher for it to begin.

Before you begin the update, I highly recommend you reboot your phone and watch.

Do not unpair your watch from your phone.

Lunch Cast – Sony FDR-AX100 4k Camcorder Review

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

SonyFDRAX100I have purchased my new Sony FDR-AX100 4k camcorder from Best Buy.  They had one too look at on the shelf, but it wouldn’t power on.  I decided to buy one and test it out myself.  I found out that it didn’t come with any memory card.  Knowing that 4k video will require a fast SD card, I decided to get the San Disk Extreme Pro SD HCI rated at 95MB/s.  I also wanted an extra battery and external charger.  The camera does have an AC power adapter that plugs into the camera and charges the battery while attached to the camera.  It will also power up the camera without a battery using the AC adapter.

I plugged in the AC adapter to the camera and had the battery plugged into the camera.  I powered on the camera and the menu came up on screen and started a configuration wizard.  Setting Date and Time.  It also found my WiFi access point and I was able to join it using the 802.11n connection.  Once the wizard completed, I got an error message on screen: This memory card does not support recording of XAVC S movies.  I was very disappointed.  I called Best Buy and they looked it up and found out that it requires a SDXC Card Class 10.  I have done a search on SDXC cards and found that the speeds range from 10Mb/s to 95Mb/s.  I am not sure if any of them will work, or if the rating needs to be over 60Mb/s due to the bandwidth requirements of 4k.

Using the SD HCI card, I am able to record in AVCHD 1080p 60p.  I did find that it only supports 1080 60i, 60p or 24 fps. I didn’t see 30i or 30p.  Just doesn’t make any sense that it would be missing, so I am guessing there is another setting that will allow this.




Mad Mike Hughes – Steam Powered Rocket Jump – Beats world record of Evil Knievel

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Watch on Youtube

Stuntman Mad Mike Hughes fly’s in a steam powered rocket at a distance of 1374′, breaking the world record. Launched on January 30, 2014 2:00pm in Winkleman Arizona.  With 420 psi of steam and about 4 seconds after the launch you hear the rocket breaking the sound barrier, which is 340.29 m / s or 1100 feet per second or 761 miles per hour.  With the force of 4 Gs, he is feels the pressure of four times his weight.  About 20 seconds into his flight, he releases his parachute.  This was his 5th attempt to launch in Winkleman Arizona.   I was there for 3 different attempts, providing aerial footage with my DJI Phantom Quad Copter.  Equipped with a GoPro Hero 3, Black Edition camera, I was able to film the launch site that is shown in the video.

Mike plans on doing the jump again after he rebuilds his rocket.  His goal is to have the people from the Guinness Book of World records present and record the flight.  The location is yet to be determined, but he is looking in Southern California, and is also looking for sponsorship.  If interested in watching his next flight, subscribe to his youtube channel or visit his website at

I want to thank Mike Hughes and Mike Hawkins for inviting me to be part if his team in this event.  Best of luck to you in your next launch.

Kull Tech Films – Aerial shots of Rancho Cucamonga, Ca – DJI Phantom GoPro Hero3

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Watch on Youtube

This video was shot at the Dog park in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca. It was a windy day, but I was still able to get usable footage. The shots around the light pole were inspired by my friend Robert. His daughter is a scientist that maintains wind mills in Ohio. Her vision is to use a similar DJI Phantom Quad Copter to inspect the windmills for damage.
