    Sense of humor? Sure. Able to catch witty jabs from strangers? Yep

    I live in South Louisiana, I've been flying rotor craft for years, but I'm just getting into quads and I dig them so far. No crashes to speak of yet excluding tip overs a couple of times trying to land in grass.

    As far as the abbreviations go, I have no clue what you're talking about.lol

    Cool, I know a guy in Mississippi, ya got to keep an eye on him though... :eek:

    Easier to fly than most RCs, isn't it?
    Landings suck, I don't even try it. Get a big fish net and catch it. LOL

    RTFM = Read The Freaking Manual... twas a joke.

    Agreed! Landings suck. I usually just catch it, unless its dead calm and no one is around.

    RTFM...that's hilarious and ironic if its the one in the box.

    No worries, I can take it. Not really mods but this is what I been filling my boring time at work on Amazon with.
    So far I got:
    Taller landing gear
    2 sets of propeller guards
    Fireproof battery bag
    Extra batteries
    Drone pilot logbook ( so my son can log his flight time)
    carbon fiber propellers
    Anti-vibration stuff for gopro

    Eventually I plan on getting the Inspire to pursue a real estate paparazzi gig once the FAA gets off their ***.

    Nice! Good info. He's actually flying it better than me at the moment, he's had flying devices since he was 3. I haven't put the carbon props on yet, but I couldn't pass them up on the cool way they look alone.
