Drones are the best . . . for the first couple of weeks, then 99% of them end up sitting unused in on the shelf :(

I was amazed when I first got my Mavic Pro last year.  I flew it a few times around the property and was so giddy about all the things I could possibly do with that drone.  After about a dozen flights, it was grounded and neglected in its case for almost a year.  Then I started wondering why I ever bought it (and all of the extra accessories that come along with it) in the first place.  For me, the possibility / inevitability of crashing it creates too much paranoia to really enjoy the drone flying experience.  Even in the few flights that I had, I had a couple of close calls where the controller reset or lost connection with the drone and I thought it would end up flying off into the wild blue yonder, never to be seen again. 

Then the Mavic 2 Pro came out . . . so, of course, I had to sell the old one and spend even more money on the newer, better model!  Got a bunch of extra accessories for the M2P too and have flown it . . . a total of two times!!!  But man, that new Hasselblad camera is so nice!!!  

I hope you get better use out of your drone than me / most people.  :)
