    Ok, so I have my phantom, enjoying it! However people keep posting about useful accessories and add ons.

    So far I have bought long range antennas, HP Stream 7, stickers for the remote, upgraded gps antenna (there's probably more).

    I don't need any of these, but had to buy them.

    So, is an end in sight? Or do I just have to keep buying stuff?

    Yes and when you reach the point that you have so much stuff that you can't find anything anymore, you have to buy even more stuff :D

    Only problem with this is that when you finally spend the money and get all the accessories, feature,s and upgrades you want to make it perfect a new model will come out that will include all of those features and more for half the money.

    Great point. When I read the topic, I was starting to get a bad feeling, but when I saw the OP, I realized it was not directly related.

    I'm sure many members on here can attest to the fact that their wives never knew what they were getting in to.

    That's true, but we are unaware of the cost of a hair re-style, nail salon visit, the latest purse/handbag, shiney shoes etc.

    Don't try to find out! £100/$130 for a haircut!

    Take off! Take off! Are you kidding? After all those mods this thing is just too expensive to put in the air. It is now a decorative fireplace mantel piece. :roll:

    lol there is no real end in site because even as soon as you think you own one or more of every thing there is. Then bam some thing new comes out that you just got to have.


    Man if only I had a dollar for every time I said ok this is the last thing I'm going to buy. Id have a lot more money to buy even more stuff.
