Re: Posting video

It looks like there may be one or more phpBB extensions that make it easier to embed video from cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive. I'll do some more research to see whether they would work for us.

IO-360 M1A weighs 279lb vs. IO-390 at 308lb, so about 30 lbs more.

Re: Some Great Flying

Can we attach video? You can post links to YouTube content if you've uploaded your video there. Pro tip: If you have a YouTube video link which looks like like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE5Ezf1yypM Then you can just paste in the BE5Ezf1yypM part, select the text, and then click on the "...
