    Perhaps they prefer DC - direct control? :p

    Mine did remote control as well as direct control - if she's been away, and you've tidied up before she got back, then you've been remotely controlled.

    My daughter, 22 now, was very handy with the awful Parrot drone thing and subsequently proved to be very smooth and accurate with the Phantom. She seems to have very good spatial awareness. I'm yet to let her loose with the F550.

    I don't know why, but hopefully they don't start. The skies are already challenge enough.

    I ask my wife to fly my P2 all the time, she wants nothing to do with it. But she goes out with me nearly every time I fly.

    I tried to get my wife to fly my phantom once I got it up in the air and she did for a few minutes and seemed to enjoy it, but she still says she's just not interested in it. She likes watching me fly though so I guess that's better than nothing. I think she secretly likes it but she just doesn't want to crash it because she knows It'll just give me a great excuse to get the P2. :lol:

    If it has nothing to do with shopping or clothing, they have no interest in it..........

    There's a Facebook group called Amelia Droneheart (or something along those lines) for female drone enthusiasts. I don"t understand why they need a separate group ...but that's another topic.
