OK, so we all spend, and spend when we buy new toys, thinking that we need everything possible to add to it. What could have been left out of the Flymore combo, or what did you buy, that you now seldom or never use?
What ND filters gets used the most, (number and PL or not), which is lying in the bag?

Asking, because I have many, many things in the bag, that I would gladly exchange for extra batteries.

The bag from the fly more combo, it is to small, and a bit awkward. I use a backpack with compartments for my drone, and the dji bag is somewhere gathering dust.

I managed to fit all my stuff in that DJI flymore combo bag, but some of them were lying loose. Now I use a hard backpack. It is sorted more, but still only fits everything that was in the smaller bag to begin with.

I bought a lot of accessories, but use very little of them.....
The set up time of the drone is already long enough.

So far the Fly More Combo has proven enough to get my job done.

This is my bag, fits everything I own for the drone, including car and normal charger, hub, tabletholder, tablet itself, windspeedmeter  and all the normal stuff. Wished it was a bit bigger, but for 10 bucks I can't complain

Me too. In hindsight I should have bought a extra battery, and leave some of the filters, landing gear etc in the shop.

If it works, it works.

It surely works. You said you wished you didn't take the landing gear? I have it too, and used it for a couple of times now, especially on sand or snow, or when the grass was a bit high. I again shouldn't have bought the parabolic range extenders, imo they do not work.

Yup.
That is (for now) the only thing I need  'more'

Used my landing gear for a while. Now, I hand launch and land if needed. What I do use for sand and dust flying sometimes, is a Landing pad. I found the landing gear does not help to keep the sand out of the gimbal if it gets kicked up by the propellers.

I have 4 batteries, and need about another 4 to keep me fairly happy.
SD card, use a 64Gb, and so far, not running out of space. Maybe because my video skills is so poor, and I am using it more for photography.....

I only have 3 batteries.
I could use 3 more indeed. Except for the fact that that won't fit the FMC bag that I like a lot for being so small!
The SD capacity is 3x 32Gb + 1x16Gb
I do both video and stills.
The issue with video is that I start recording before I start moving and I don't know when I get 'the shot'.
So I end up with A LOT of footage that I will only use a small portion of.
With a ground camera I see my shot and press rec.
So I will need more SD cards for longer trips. (because I'm not going to fly back every time when I get a perfect shot to record it).

I love the bag! Everything fits in and there's extra room for some cables, the filters, etc...

Yeah, I don't think I've ever even put them on my MA.  Come to think of it, I'm not even sure where they went.

Now, it's a different story on my Tello.

I've never used the prop guards or bag. My Mavic air goes into my Lowepro backpack with my a7Rii and all its lenses.

I've got Prop Guards and Car battery charger. Never used... By the rest just bought, I think, useful stuff. Extra Batteries x2, low noise propellers (originale are as spare) and a ten bucks dual hard case for Mavic Pro and controller. I think with this I can survive any flight need.

Being a very infrequent flyer and still new to the world of drones I found the bag is just right for all the gear but still bought a hard case, and also found the prop guards really useful, though thankfully not made use of them yet  :-)

Prop guards, never fitted. Landing gear, bought it first, but used it 3 times.  Have around 15 different filters, only used a handfull yet. (might or might not use the rest, but at the time, I was very sure that I need ALL of them.

When we want toys, we can convince a beggar to give us his last slice of bread, and that it is and will be, and should be a "special", never to be repeated again.......I can talk a zebra out of it,s stripes, to get that extra thing, that I probably won,t use anyway.....
