Well, it took 2 days, but I got the power steering fixed, the oil changed, and all the brakes replaced on the van.  Tomorrow it's the brakes on the car.  And then all the plow truck work...  ???

Nice unit enjoy , wind sensitive if out side a good wind screen and some extra ladies stockings cut fit help to reduce the wind noise . It's also a battery eater so get used to that maybe get the AC charger . Other then that enjoy playing with it .:)

As Ag said, W, they do go through a battery charge.  If you're going to be recording for a while, and you're not anywhere close to a plugin while recording (to use a charger), it helps to have a portable USB battery backup/charger.  This will keep it going quite a while.

Also, I'm not sure about a choir and organ, but with a full band I find it's best to record from a little distance rather than close to the stage.  As long as there is no background noise it seems to record better that way.  Maybe you could test a short recording before the event.

And lastly, if you're holding on to the unit while recording, make sure you don't bump or tap the unit while recording, or brush anything against it.  Makes loud noises in the recording.

You'll have fun with it, though, and it does make great recordings.  Maybe we'll get to hear part of it?
