    Anyone else's life now revolving around the blinking green light on the charger? I swear, if I'm not flying that thing and a charged battery is sitting on the charger I feel like I'm wasting my life, haha!

    I could barely cook dinner and eat tonight knowing that the thing was ready to take off.

    I'd buy a better charger and more battery's ASAP then. I use an aftermarket one and it charges faster on 2amp that the standard does at 3 amps.

    4 batteries on backorder with my name on them. My point was really that I wish I had more free time to fly, not that the battery doesn't charge fast enough.

    Sure, Batteries (on backorder)

    These guys are real cool. Usually do business with Hollywood productions, octocopters, etc. I told him I blew my compass module with a magnetic screwdriver and since most spare parts like that aren't even in the pipeline from DJI yet, he was kind enough to open a brand new Phantom and cannibalize it for me. The compass module was $15, he's also sending me some of the blades off that Phantom. The guy's name is Don, he called me at home on a Friday evening right after I sent him an email.
