How well did the GoPro copy work?

Got little useful footage from it. Didn't trust the battery to last the event so only switched on when thought it was worthy, but I mostly focused on the other cam that gave the better angle + audio + quality. Waste of time taking it.

As I said, great job Dave  :-+ but I still can't get used to destroying a functional oscilloscope. If you had sold it on the auction, the charity would have had ~300 bucks extra...
It is like a rockstar destroying his guitar ... It's stupid   :-- Just sayin' , I know I am not going to be popular popular for saying this  :blah: . Maybe just a cultural thing.

 :-DD Thanks Dave, I thoroughly enjoyed watching every minute of this video.  I thought the bunny suit was going to come off but you stuck with it.

Don't think I've ever heard Dave's voice go so high as towards the end. Anyone have a spectrograph?

Dave - I gotta wonder....
Are you going to auction off the TDS, bunny suit and multimeter?  Maybe even the cameras?  UNcleaned of course!
Great bragging rights for the winners:
"This oscilloscope helped cure cancer -- and I have the video footage to prove it!"

I had never heard of that MM500 before Dave mentioned it here.  But, I started to look into it.  Very low cost meter for that kind of durability.  I found a video of it being dropped 40 feet!!  Fairly tough meter for under $50.



But, it looks like it is built for durability, and not a lot of features.  I wouldn't mind seeing Dave hook it up, and see what it can do.  Getting high voltage ratings, high safety ratings, and this kind of durability for under $50 seems like a pretty good deal.
