Seems idiot proof (crashing) which would be my biggest concern. But maybe it's not 100% foolproof considering that they offer that bumper kit...?

My brother in law has one of the expensive Mavic ones.. damn thing can fly super super far away, we could barely see it with our eyes. Lots of fun potential.

However, our neighbor has one and flies it all the time and it's really annoying. Always seems to be flying around when we're in our backyard.
I can barely see my nearest neighbor's house...

I've seen many youtube vids of people with drones being harassed simply for using the things. It's crazy the reaction the operators get.

It's because the operators are pervs. "What? What? I dindu nuffins! It's just a coincidence that I was flying around while your bikinied 14 year old daughter is tanning."

Yes, yes. I know. #NotAllOperators 😏

Yeah, I remember him from here (no Facebook for me). We used to chat a little and he painted up one of the custom figures for me a while back. Wow... smh.

Haven't heard what happened...

honestly, I don't think he was that old. I think he was 24-25.

I mean, I guess we're getting to that age where people will stop dropping off.. which is weird. I feel like I need to write out something for people to do when I'm gone to make sure this place and others get taken care of.. weird to think I need to do that.

RIP Matt

Found a post by his dad, that he was in the hospital, and was really sick.

Like really really sick...been in the hospital for a few weeks.

He hadn't posted in a couple of years, but I do remember him. Damn, that sucks.

This seriously made me sad. I really liked that guy. Used to bust each others balls regularly. Last time he visited here was March 2017.

Gosh dang it.

I remember him too! He started out doing 1:18th customs, then branched out into NECA sized stuff at which point he left here. I'm trying to remember......didn't he have some big life issue....something with his mother maybe? He had to quit school and go out and get a job fairly young, take care of his brother as well? Although that wouldn't make much sense if he has a father as was indicated earlier, unless he wasn't around or couldn't help for whatever reason.

Rest in peace Matt, and thanks for your time here on this board with us. :(

Oh, man. I love BBQ! Our favorite is down in W'burg. Was just down there on Sunday (with leftovers Monday) and had some amazing brisket. My mouth waters just thinking back to it. Looking forward to being down there again next weekend for some more.

Learning how to operate a gps piloted drone along with how to read FAA maps and file flight plans. I definitely bit off a large chunk with this new hobby, but all will be worth it if open conflict breaks out in the streets. Pocket sized 4K eye in the sky at 2 clicks.

Let's be honest. If all goes well this next year and the wife and I actually learn how to use the thing for photography, it won't be long before we buy the big boy who can fly 4 miles at +50mph, has 360 obstacle detection and stays in the air for 30 minutes.

Brisket! Exactly what I was looking forward to and got. "Can I get the fatty cuts?" 😍 We went to different BBQ place today so I got a sandwich instead...brisket dip. 😁

Will it still work if cell service do not?

Yes. I will definitely be looking at 3rd party flight control software since obviously the first thing that would happen when the zombies come is cell and gps will be cut and I’m sure DJI software wouldn’t let you get it off the ground. That’s all an afterthought for the future though since first I must master legal flying. Just another toy that becomes a tool in the kit if shit hits the fan. I seem to do the same thing when buying shoes/clothes as I want them to be useful in the woods. Completely obsessed with Merrell and Eddie Bauer these past several years.

[BGCOLOR=transparent]One of my biggest quandaries when I go to my favorite BBQ joint: Brisket platter or brisket sandwich? Their sandwich is a variation on a cheesesteak. Oh so good with sauce to my heart’s content. Yum...[/BGCOLOR]

Funny, I’m much the same. Nearly all my pants (save for some of the dressier stuff) are woods suitable. I’ve also acquired a buttload of camo pants/shirts/etc. of all kinds, boots and other sorts of hunting/woodsy/tactical goodies as my favorite tactical websites have super sales and clearances.

I love the look of the Merrells and Lowas, but can’t justify the cost for them. I keep hoping for a clearance (in my size/width) or something because they are very cool looking, and I’m sure very functional. Most of my boots are Reebok, Converse or Magnum. Eddie Bauer is also way rich for my taste, and typically doesn’t carry the tall stuff I need anyway. I’m much more about Propper and Tru-Spec.

I have an Eddie Bauer outlet, so all dress shirts and flannels are $25. Just can’t beat the quality for that price. Merrells I buy when I need shoes every 4yrs or so and usually with a gift card from work. No way I’m spending that much out of my pocket, but damn are they worth it. They run .5-1 size too small though which makes online ordering a pita.

Wow, that thing is seriously stable, and a good picture at HD like you said. And holy carbon copy neighborhood though, Batman! Don’t those people know diversity is our strength? At least their street is artificially windy, but dang, how about at least a little color, people!
