    Afternoon gents. I've got a new human living in my house so it's been impossible to get to this board since last Wednesday. Would someone be so kind as to catch me up on anything I've missed? Appreciate it.

    Gay Marriage is now legal in the US, we still cannot marry our drones. People are still unsure about everything. Three new threads about CSC in Flight, and about 20 new threads about FW updates. AbsPapa got a letter from DJI.....He is still not happy. That about sums it up!

    Congrats on the new addition

    Hi sir. Welcome back. I actually did miss you. Oh, congrats on the new addition.

    A few off the top of my head. Guys, please add or correct...

    New app introduced gimbal overload error messages. Most are ignoring and DJI knows.

    A few people are starting to see cracks develop nears the screws holding the prop arms together.

    There is a growing rumor that DJI will release a new FW update next week.

    Many of the same threads related to CSC and "which tablet is best."

    Best Buy now selling P3s, so maybe a lot of new fliers coming.

    The sun still rises in the east and sets in the west. Water is wet, and AbsPapa is still complaining in every thread he posts to. I'm out having fun flying......... 4 batteries Sunday and 3 yesterday. Welcome back!

    Oh, and somebody used their 3d printer to turn a p3 into a hand held steadycam. Ain't science wonderful?
    Welcome back and congratulations on the new addition. (I assume it's a baby and not just that it's your mother in law that has moved in with you) Did you buy a teeny-tiny R/C to get them started flying your P3?

    Yeah, and besides, it is an awful strain on all of those poor electrons that are forced into representing sentences that jak3 does not feel are worthy -- not to mention the finger-strain to swipe past all of the other people's lives. 'must be a pretty stinky life if something as innocent as a forum post, made with no hint of malice or bad intent, makes someone a piece of fecal matter.

    Or, maybe it's true what they say about those who protesteth a bit too much?

    SHORT VERSION; Don't be hatin' - lol is a lot more fun!!

    Up is now down, down is now up.

    CSC is a thing.

    Software / firmware has life of its own and looking at world domination.

    Congrats on your new bundle of joy -- 'delivered by stork or drone?(Or, if you meant that you have a new roomate... yawn :eek:)

    Let's see... 'which case should I get?', 'why did my bird crash?', 'DJI suks', 'P3 rox', 'p3 battery sightings - more elusive than Sasqwatch?' 'what filters and camera settings?' (Very informative).
    Those are not actual post titles, but it's all still up there for your reading pleasure, whenever your sleep-deprived eyes can focus again!

    thanks guys. So in other words, I've missed absolutely nothing :) got a good laugh out of the summaries.

    And yes, new baby boy, not a relative or roommate ;)

    Appreciate the replies. I'll be poking around again soon.

    At first I thought you were a Troll, but I see that you are 22 yrs old, that explains a lot, been here 2 weeks with no posts but still feel entitled to talk smack to a respected long time member, NOT the way to start out.
