What a fool i was

well today i packed me drone and bits and pieces including my new smart remote and headed off to Richmond park to use the remote for the first time ,well got to the field and realized i forgot to pack the mavics battery’s.
Has anyone else suffered this brain fade?


I forgot the SD card … just once!

Now I have two, and as soon as I take one out another goes in IMMEDIATELY … so that will never happen again.

i keep the battery’s in fireproof bags then put them in a ammo box away from everything, maybe i should just use the bags for charging and put the batteries in the drone case,maybe im being to over cautious

Yes,on a regular basis,took of a couple of weeks ago,and thought i had a camera fault,had forgotten to remove the gimble cover…And today? yes i forgot my sd card!!! thank f@#* the mp2 has internal storage!!!:rofl::rofl::rofl:

I remember the first time I took a Phantom 3 Advanced to Norway about 3 years ago.
So chuffed I got it on the Cruise ship through security.
Went to charge the batteries up in my cabin…forgot the bloody charger !!.
Luckily for me, I saw a day or two later that one of the crew had a phantom 3 he was flying on shore.
Told him of my plight, and kindly let me borrow it when I needed it to charge the batteries up !.
Needles to say he got a special tip at the end of the holiday!.
Just to prove it happens to the best of us !.

Forgetting wedding anniversaries , wife’s birthday , children’s birthday … acceptable . Forgetting drone batteries ? Totally unacceptable!
