And, of course, when it's the wife who's the LUGnut, she can buy anything 
she wants anytime :-)

I've been playing with my new R8 motor all day.  It does balance the 
camera, but I'm going to have to increase my weight lifting at the Y!
I've developed 4 rolls and all look good.  The LED display on the back 
keeps blinking, though.  I've heard from another LUGnut who had the same 
problem and ended up having to return the motor after it developed other 
problems.  Does anybody else's motor have this problem?  When the motor is 
replaced by the regular battery holder, the blinking stops.  Suggestions?
