    Got my first quadcopter ever about a month ago. DJI Phantom Vision + and am blown away by the technology! Flew RC back in the 1970s and this is so much better.

    We collect and restore mid-century Cadillacs and this is a wonderful way to get images of them.

    Got my drone from Amazon just as it is beginning to get cold. We had our first frost a few days ago. I am thinking about getting an Inspire One, and seller will take this one back, but wondering if I would use it in the cold weather?

    The way technology is advancing, the Inspire One is likely to change dramatically between now and Spring. Might just return it and get something else in the Spring.

    Man that's one hot caddy! :shock: My old babysitter used to have one kinda like that and I used to love riding in that thing. Haven't seen another one like it since then. I think hers was a hardtop though, and it was a light green color, can't remember too much about it except that it felt like I was floating when I was riding in it, and it had *cool metal circle thinggys* on the tail lights. (I don't know much about the older cars sorry :oops: )
