    I have a habit of naming the things that are important to me. Pets of course, my car, birds and squirrels that live in my backyard - you get the point. My wife quickly picked up the habit and now is our official 'namer ' of the family. I've been bugging her for weeks to name my P3S, "I'm thinking," she says. She knows my baby is a female because I keep calling her a 'she'. My wife is still getting accustomed to having a drone in the family. She thought I was crazy at first (purchased 5 weeks ago). Craziness turned to puzzlement, and now my wife is simply mildly amused. And today - while we were returning from flying (she is often a spotter), she christened my baby.

    "Geniveve. We'll call her Genny."

    Genny is now officially part of the family. What is the name of your drone?

    I only name things that will come to me when called, with the exception of some idiot drivers I've named but can't print here.

    Mine are always "bird " names ... Litebird, blackbird, prettybird, babybird, angrybird,dirtybird, captain long bird! The list goes on. Funny thing is, I got a new P3A once, after just having the famous power failure from the 1.5 FW, and decided to name this one "Lucky bird" I had nothing but problems with that thing from day one,connection issues,signal drops, compass issues.
    Ended up sending it back luckily. Never name your bird lucky bird
