Ive just been out and flew 3 avata 2 batteries,  one of them entirely in manual mode without getting trouble.  Nothing serious just some light flying about and not getting too close to anything or the ground.

That's a really great start at manual mode.  I'm assuming the weather was at least nice enough to get in the flights and hopefully more for other tasks.

I found a really, really nice watch today on a dive.  I also found a really ornate money clip (no money in it).  I looked up the watch on the internet and it retails for around $400.  Too bad it wasn't a Rolex.

Sadly I wasted too much of the day in traffic Jams,    got picked up to swap the cars about and got stuck in road works,    came home via more road works,   went to empty the car and realised it still had medication in for my parents so I had to return that,  through more road works,   I lost nearly 3 hours messing about.  But at least the sun was shining.

Sadly, that 3 hours could have been put to more productive uses but what can you do.  Sitting in traffic is never, ever fun.

The good news is they are going to be fined,   apparently when they got the permit to do the work it Wass agreed they would work until 9pm as to minimise the amount of time the works take,    the local councillor has now got dash cam proof for several days that they are knocking off at 5pm.

Sneaky work crews but not sneaky enough as they've been caught.

And to top it off after we left another big set of road works got setup near us,   but were away and will miss it.

Hopefully, that will be done by the time you return from holiday.

They should be done mid week (gotta love face book for somethings) which leaves lots of buffer for our return.

Okay, so even if they experience weather or other delays they still should be done before your return.  Seems like they are doing a lot of road improvements in your area which is always a good thing when they are done but not during.

No not improvements.   the opposite,   they dig the road up to fiddle with the gas or water and then the tarmac goes back and we have another bump or two in the road.

That's not at all good then.  I think that could be why here they quit allowing as much as possible the passing of any type lines or pipes under main roads.  The problem we face here is the heat as it causes the roads to crack under the extreme summer conditions and their temporary fixes are only bandaids

Here it's a bit historic that water, sewage, gas and electrical  runs under the roads at least in the residential areas,  I think motor ways they now run them along side.     You can pretty much guarantee that if they fit a metal main hole lid that it will be in the tyre line.

I'm thinking some road engineer got a real kick out of making sure the man hole covers would be in the tire path of passing cars.

Daf, I think you have asked for FPV simulator working with Controller 3. If so here i found this one. Which looks like works on Windows and Mac OS. Hope it will helps.

Avata 2 Controller 3 and Liftoff

thanks.    I was looking for one that worked with both the remote and the goggles but DJI have dropped support for that with goggles 3.      Ive been using currykitten sim which is free and runs on older hardware better.

Man, that would make for a lot of bumps going down the road.  I've see the opposite where they stick above the road surface by about 2 inches when I was in South America last.

Not sure the last time I saw one proud of the surface,   but yet we have a lot of bumps,   the roads really have been let go over the last decade,    seems something changed with how they repair that has caused it.

No doubt funds for road infrastructure are suffering.  Seems mostly just temporary repairs are the order of the day.  

A new permeable pavement is one of the fastest growing technologies in sustainable asphalt roadway engineering. However, it has not been widely adapted.

I dont know this for a fact but it seems the councils outsourced road repairs (along with many services) and since then its gone down hill,    for example if a pot hole was reported and there were some other around it before being outsourced the would turn up and do them all,  now they only repair the one thats reported and leave the others.  I assume that because they charge per repair.

Definitely sounds like a performance based contract or outsourcing where each issue gets charged separately.

It feels like that when the repair one hole and not the one 9 inches away.

Common sense would dictate to go ahead and fill that hole to keep you from coming back again soon to fix it.  However, I'm betting their contract dictates otherwise.

They want to be able to change a second time,  unlike when it was in-house and they just wanted to keep the roads maintained.

There are a couple of A/C companies locally that have done the same thing and people are complaining to the Better Business Bureau.  It appears the technician replaced a part to get their A/Cs up and running but told them they'd need to add a hard start unit soon.  When the home owner said go ahead and do it now and I'll just pay the difference.  The technician had the part on his truck but said company policy prohibited from doing that.  So the homeowner had to call the company and set up a 2nd appointment to do the hard start unit.  This way the company can add the gasoline and service fee to the 2nd visit.

If that happened to me I would definitely not use that company again.  A lot of these companies have bad reviews on Yelp or other places but people still use them and get bad service.

I found lately the negative reviews that Ive left on google have been marked as inappropriate and I have to go back in and edit them to get them to stay,  its like the owners are trying to get rid of the bad ones.

No doubt they try hard to bury bad reviews.  If I see just one bad review I might think well it just happened to this one person but when I see several bad reviews I'm like I think I'll avoid this product.  I bought something off of Amazon one time and I gave a bad review because the product was not as described and was of really poor quality.  The company offered me a free product from their website if I would change my one star review to at least a four star review.  Of course, I told them to PO.
