    I posted, before, asking what everyone wanted Santa to bring.

    Now, what DID he bring?? Any new Phantom owners out there? Feel free to 'speak' up!

    For me, Christmas hasn't happened, except for the real meaning of it. Our family will be having a delayed Christmas. But, no one will be buying FPV equipment for me as it isn't something they can even understand!

    I hope you all had a great Christmas. I know that some are alone, perhaps without family. Just remember that you have a family here.

    Maybe 'normal' people have gone to sleep! As for me, I'm watching Mythbusters on the Science channel. It is a multi-day back to back marathon!

    I guess that is supposed to happen when we get this darn old! No kids or grandkids of my own. Well, that was stupid as without kids, I can't have grandchildren! (I blame it on two strokes.). Anyway, I get enough of that when my nephew and just engaged fiancé and my my newly engaged niece will come down.

    My nephew will end up with six kids after their marriage! I hope he has Valium! This will be his second marriage and my niece's third marriage. Oh well, they didn't consult me!

    I got a kumbacam setup! Totally excited though I'm having a bit of an issue with a loose power connection in the plug and play adapter...I had to come up with a bandaid fix to hold it steady until amazon can send me a new one. I'm gonna have to get used to FPV... But it's awesome!

    Golly, then you really DO NOT want to see my box of Whitman's Sampler! It measures 23 X 15. That is INCHES! Biggest box I've ever seen. :D

    I didn't get any Phantom stuff FOR Christmas. But on Christmas Eve, my FC40 arrived early!

    Speak for yourself! I've totally lost mine. I didn't appreciate being healthy. Perhaps THAT is the best Christmas present of all, being healthy and having healthy loved ones. But, I did make good use of my health when I had it!

    Yeah it's pretty cool! I'm still trying to get used to where to look! I am so used to looking at the drone that I have a hard time looking down to the screen!

    I actually had all my stuff for a week or so, so I guess Santa brought me courage. iOSD mini, immersionrc transmitter, Black Pearl monitor...Opened up the body and got everything hooked up and functioning! Hardest part was matching the frequency.

    Now, if I could just get the DroneMods UAV Locator to work right I would be in business! (too many pricy gizmos to fly without it now...totally paranoid. lol)

    Now, why didn't Santa bring me that? I sat on his lap and told him I wanted that?

    Is Santa real? He sure did a poor job this year, if he is!

    No it should come with antennas but you can get much better distance with better antennas.

    Yep Santa was kind to me this year for sure. Ordered it all in the week before christmas, not expecting to get in time and even told some wouldn't be there in time and it all turned up on 23rd!

    Yep! That is my concern, once I get FPV equipment. I guess it takes a lot of practice to quit looking at your Phantom.
    Using googles must require a lot of confidence with the FPV equipment. But, I look forward to being that comfortable!
