Another victim, "I'm so weak"

d@m you rammie!
Your drone post baited me in.
But not wanting to pay $300 for something I would hardly use, sent me
on a quest for more of a drone toy.
Ended up at the eBay rabbit-hole finding a DJI Tello Boost Combo Refurb
direct from DJI for $99. [www.ebay.com]

Tello drone, 3x batteries, charger hub, 2 sets of props, blade guards, &
an extended 2 year warranty.
(have nearby a large, obstruction free grass field to crash it in)

13 minute flight time, 720p HD Video Recording, not too bad for the price!



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Yes, but it'll lack the feelings of anguish and chagrin when it drops into a body of water because the battery level wasn't monitored.

Though it does look like just the thing for some light urban surveillance.

Nice find, Mr.NB!






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Yep, be careful over water, Rammie; Maintain altitude…

I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos about how a lot of pilots excel in pilot error.

There's one goofball, Dustin Dumwitty or similar, how was the poster boy for how to lose a drone.

I accidentally watched a recent video of his, and the piloting acumen seemed a little light, and sure enough it was him.

He seems to have improved some, but I just don't like watching his vids.

One thing I didn't think about is the RTB or RTH in dji-speak.

One may pilot the drone out, carefully avoiding obstacles, but using RTB the drone makes a beeline back with no avoidance features.

For that, I'm gonna need a bigger drone.

One YT drone goofball suggests first thing is to raise the Max Altitude to Max and the Max Distance to Max.

I'd like to slap the taste outta his mouth.

Leo Laporte launched one from a boat and immediately sank it.

He strikes me as the 'more money than good sense/RTFML type'.

Baby steps, baby.

Not quite a beeline and that's the secret to doing a safe RTH. The Mini will always fly an inverted-u pattern home. You just need to make sure the preset RTH altitude is sufficient to avoid obstacles.

Are there drones with a head mounted viewing system, that will slew them drone’s camera to your head movements?

This is a great little drone! I had it for a while and it's fun to learn with. Great for indoor flying as well. Have fun!
