I'm in the under 20 group here, it's very small

Granted, these units are supposed to have 18+ age restrictions on them. Of course, those seem to more "suggestive" when someone is willing to buy it for them.

Some bright youths are wise, far beyond their birthdate.


As well, many seniors have gone back to being much more juvenile.  

What exactly does the Sybian over an avatar, as seen in sone posts, represent?

It's supposed to be an indication that the post was made via a mobile device, which was odd since I was on a desktop.

@DJI Ken was mentioning that he would look into this...

So far, nothing has been presented explaining that forum anomaly.

I've had odd things like that happen in general when I've kept a browser internet cache for too long and certain sites start to read things incorrectly. It may be something similar for here, but it would be speculative on my end.

I'm sad. I'm 14 and have saved up to get a p3s since I was 10 years old and the phantom 1.1.1 came out. Kinda sad that not many people in the younger demographic have these machines. But then that's also a good thing because less restricted faa rules. Which side should I pick?

34. Granted there is a large pinch of socioeconomics at play - but I think there is also some nostalgia at play. My grandfather taught me how to build balsa wood aircraft. It was slow and methodical and required huge amounts of patience. He told me that if I built 50 of them, perfectly, he would buy me a remote control aircraft. Sadly, he died when I was around 12. When I got to my 50th aircraft some years later, I promised myself that one day I'd take to the skies in his honour. I had a dream of a 3/4 channel aircraft. I imagined that one day cameras would become miniaturised enough to be involved. Many years later, when drones came along, I was whipped back to this childhood dream, where all my aspirations for unmanned flight had come to fruition.

I'd imagine there are many similar stories in the 40-60 category.

My wife still says it's a toy and and I'm just playing. I think for many of us, it's much more than that. It's decades of imagination brought to life.

That's a beautiful story, and the rest well said. Thanks for sharing.  My father flew spitfires during the war and passed away a couple of decades ago now, but I know that he'd get a kick out of this hobby too. Once you've been into the sky I suspect you never leave...

I now have a P4 and P4P. Why? Because I can. :-)  It's handy to have the two, as my girlfriend gets to fly with me and she's really keen now. She actually hassles me to take the drones out now...

I'd kill for a mavic to go alongside my P4. Just for portability's sake. Sadly two birds is out of budget (hey, I am only 34 after all) and there is not enough of a step up in performance to warrant selling one for the other. So I remind myself on a daily basis that I'm lucky to have the P4. It's proving to be an amazing machine; one that I'll never fully master.

Thanks for the nostalgic replay. When I was 17, it was a very good year....

However, I pretty much agree with Janis.

62 in June, version 3.5.0, 3 wives, 5 kids, 0 husbands. Radio ham since late 70s,falconer to exhibition level, rc boat builder(bait boats for carp fishing). Flying drones is a coming together of all these hobbies, although I never thought of marriage as a hobby!!

Marriage can be a hobby.  And divorce is amazing! Everyone should get married, so they can get a divorce.

I know about Magnet fishing.  I've never tired it though.  Two reasons!  I don't have a strong enough magnet, and I don't have any water around here.  I live on the desert.

Whereabouts on the desert?  I am near Palm Desert.
