    Why can't people ever keep a topic serious? He wouldn't know what to do with 10 condoms anyway except maybe creating pontoons for his Phantom.

    I forgot the midget hooker. I always pack one of those in case it's too windy and I can't fly...

    Cale262, have you tried viewing one of the apps like Hover or uav forecast while also using your anemometer to see if there is a difference in what you're experiencing on site and what the wind speed the app is reporting?

    If you're also bringing a computer with you to view/edit your footage on-site, I suggest tossing in a USB 3.0 micro SD adapter; even if your machine has a SD card slot, I find it easier and faster to use than futzing with the full-size-to-micro adapter.

    If you think you're going to attract inquisitive visitors, maybe have a few cards you can hand out with basic info and maybe even a link to your portfolio, if you have one.

    And, a copy of the photographer's rights in some form might not be a bad idea.
