Always fun to got to the pistol range.  I buy ammo in bulk so it keeps the price way down. Also, target ammo is much cheaper than self-defense ammo.

I tried to take the Air 3 out for a flight this afternoon.  However, it kept giving me an error about needing an update. Using my smartphone data I checked and it wouldn't update.  Kept giving me error about all servers being busy.  Anyway, once I got back to my boat I was able to hook up to DJI Assistant 2 and it indicated it had the latest firmware update and RC2 was up to date. So I just refreshed everything using Assistant 2.  Took it out for a test flight off the back of my boat and it flew just fine and without any errors.  Not sure what that was all about but had be doing some troubleshooting for sure.

As long as it's working ad didn't have to go in for service.

Yes, that was great.  I had to send in my air 2 once before and it was a 3 week turnaround.  After going back and reading the logs I see that the error was for an outdated flysafe database.  Weird, as I always keep everything up to date, or so I thought.

Sometimes it's just a glitch in the download. As long as you don't get it swapped in the 3 week period. Besides losing the drone for 3 weeks you get one that you might not trust back.

Just the luck of the draw I'm thinking.  I had an immediate issue with my Air 3 and returned it under a warranty claim and got a brand new one back in return.  I sent a Mini 2 in because of a motor failure but was out of the warranty period so I just paid to have it repaired as agreed upon.  However, I got a refurb drone back as the serial number was different.  It had all kinds of issues and acted like it had been sent in for repairs and was sent to me by mistake.  So I was able to send it back and lo and behold I got a new Mini 2 back.

Good stroke of luck. Go play the lottery.

I guess I should try the lottery more often.  I only buy an occasional scratch off ticket.  However, I have to admit I've been quite lucky as the last one I bought was a $1500 winner.  The ten tickets before that were losers.

That's still not bad. I never win, but I don't play often.

They say you can't win if you don't play.  However, I've seen people spend an entire paycheck trying to hit the lottery big and have zero to show for it and then can't even pay rent.  Very sad to see somebody addicted to gambling that bad.  I just consider how the odds are tremendously stacked against you winning so that is why I rarely play.

I used to train racehorses and watched people gamble their lives away. Not the way to riches.. Just the way to poverty.

So seeing it firsthand you knew exactly what I was talking about with the compulsive lottery people.  Big thing in this area is greyhound dog racing.  I don't go to them but they tend to draw huge crowds and no doubt the betting is big also.

I've never been to a dog race.
