I have a problem. Haha. I bought the first generation drone used on CL "barely used" but after the fact found out using drone ace that it had been flown for 14 hours. It had been beat up enough that I only got about another 1.5 hours out of it before one accident caused the cross section to break, and I couldn't afford to replace it.
Fast forward to the release of the 2.0. My wife didn't have the heart to tell me we could not really justify a $300 purchase, and it was near my birthday. Ordered it. Took forever to get it. Take it out on its first flight, all is good. Second flight, hard landing but no biggie, until I realize the pinion gear on the motor had flown off! Have to replace the entire motor just to get that gear. It was depressing enough to be in a Disney movie. So the drone sat in my office, waiting for the day I could justify another $50+ for a toy.
Last week I show up to work, and there is a box behind my managers desk. They have me open it, and it turns out a bunch of my co workers and the general manager pooled their $$ together to get me a whole new drone! Best guys ever. (mostly they wanted to see one, and I never got a chance to bring it into work) and they bought me an extended battery as well. So I went from having a broken drone, to having a parts drone and a functioning one, 4 batteries and 3 chargers.
The final chapter of this is that on Monday, I came down with a nasty infection. Actually borderline life threatening at the time, so I have been out sick all week. And while loopy on Percocet, I have had all the time in the world to fly as often as I want. And with all 4 batteries, I get about 50 minutes of flight time.
I am addicted!
