    Just bought my first Quadcopter

    Well technically second one, but first expensive one.

    I bought a two extra batteries, a vibration reducing attachment for my GoPro and Propeller guards. Came out to just under $600, paid for by my handsome tax return.

    The batteries and vibration reducing thing came today. Tomorrow the rest should be here.

    R/C planes, helicopters, quads, etc. can become a habit that eats your brain, counter space, storage space, and wallet. I have a room that you'd think a hoarder lived in from all of the copter boxes stacked along one wall.

    At least the smaller micro copters and remote control transmiters are in a closet, in the pockets of several of those hanging shoe-storage thingies women love.

    Careful, the tax preparation industry is going to start monitoring your movements.

    That was what I was going to say, except I was going to call it "cashing in the repayment of the interest-free loan to the government."

    I expect to be writing a very small check.

    I got all the parts for the quad yesterday but haven't had a chance to fly it yet since I have been working late. Maybe this weekend.

    Nice!

    Put a gimbal on it

    If you don't want to spend too much on the DJI Gimbal (the Zenmuse), the next best one is the same one I have, the Tarot T-2D gimbal
