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.

Keep Smiling,

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.

Maybe next time add male or female to your poll.  Me? Female!

I could have figured that out, given time.
