Default Build threads - pics or video

Been a while since I did a build thread, have done both pics and vids In the past, or a combination of both. Pics are clearer, quicker access and easier to do - are videos worth the trouble?

Bob is still in HF Support and browses around from time to time. I think the enormity and pressure of tasks he took on together with a prodigious output eventually took its toll and it stopped becoming fun and became a chore so he's on indefinite sabbatical!

You can see him every year at the HF FF where he does a great job as MC

Whatever the consensus turns out to be here. I'm so happy the vids are done on all that they are. Thank you Mr. White. You will live on in infamy among the Helifreaks of planet earth

Build threads is my vote. If properly done, the level of detail can be outstanding!

They both have their merit, I might give a video the edge as I know its a pile easier for the cat making it as apposed to a thread. Dunkonu23/Scott G has some uber kickass build threads on the ALeeS section, the time he spent on them is surely insane but if you need a detailed pic it's there. Really, you can't go wrong either way.

Pictures.

I like the videos also but I feel the systematic build chronicled in pictures makes for a very powerful reference combined with text explaining what is going on. Videos are good to show a process or technique. IMO

I also have benefited greatly from Bobs videos, and Mercuriell's videos too.
