O.K.

Drones are everywhere, I have a DJI P3 Pro, but its getting to where you can't even give away a Heli...... Not that I would, I only have a Swift NX, Mini Titan E325, Devil 450 and my Quark.

Oh I forgot that I still have my heavily modified IKARUS ECO 8 from the ECO line, which started 24 years ago.

My Swift NX will live on as well....
