It’s conspiracy theory time … !!!

Blue skies? :heavy_check_mark: (OK …some cloud … but I can see blue!) :+1:
Billiant sunshine? :heavy_check_mark: (Between the clouds!) :+1:
Free time? :heavy_check_mark: :+1:
Effin’ windy? :heavy_multiplication_x: … which is :+1:
Car battery too dead to start car! :heavy_check_mark::angry:
Battery charger working fine? :heavy_multiplication_x: :rage:

Anyone local have a spare rectifier for a Maypole 730 battery charger … by any chance … ???


#22

Work? :heavy_check_mark: which is :-1:

If DJI wanted to impress, a drone that I could fly for 3 hrs, whilst sat in my living room with the RC connected to the TV aerial, 50 mile range, waterproof, a screen of air to keep rain off the lens, in these conditions (it’s less “light rain”, more “heavy and horizontal”!) … for the price of the Air … and my order would have been placed, already! :wink:


#24

Would need to be good in wind too - sort of like a Sea King Would probably suffice today :dash:


#25

… probably included the 44mph wind? :wink:


#26

Trying to not get too excited!


#27

Hmm…

Bloody weather app on my phone shows me a different report every time I look at it!


#28

Mine too! And it probably won’t resemble that when the time comes.
Sometimes clutching at straws is all we have to cheer us up!

“Excellent Flying Conditions Scuppered by Annoying Family Emergency Resulting in 400 Mile Drive”.

Yeah. Only car related. My Shogun and car trailer were needed up in the wilds of Sheffield for a car recovery.
Nice driving weather tho … pfttt! :wink:
