Good to see some of the old 450 & 550 guys still around and good to see some of the old 450 and 550 drones still airborne. I gave away all my 450s and 550s long ago.

But I still enjoy this thread and the people in it. I mostly just post in here now and then when I see an interesting video or think of a drone topic that isnít really worth starting a whole new thread for. So I just use this thread.

This pretty much sums it up. And why I don’t like Face Book.

Q: How many people does it take to change a lightbulb in a Face Book group?

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.
14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.
7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.
17 purists who use candles and are offended by light bulb discussions.
6 to argue over whether it's 'lightbulb' or 'light bulb'.
Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.
22 to tell THOSE 6 to stop being jackasses.
2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is 'lamp'.
15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that 'light bulb' is perfectly correct.
249 to post meme's and gif's (several are of someone eating popcorn with the words added, “I’m just here for the comments.”)
19 to post that this page is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb page.
11 to defend the posting to this page saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant here.
12 to post F.
8 to ask what F means.
16 to post 'Following' but there's 3 dots at the top right that means you don't have to.
3 to say "can't share"
2 to reply "can't share from a closed group"
36 People to post pics of their own light bulbs.
15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and use their own light bulbs.
6 to report the post or PM an admin because someone said "fų◊$"
4 to say "Didn't we go through this already a short time ago?".
13 to say "Do a search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs".
1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that (insert politician of choice) isn't the brightest bulb. This usually takes place within the first three comments.
50 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.
5 admins to ban the light bulb posters who took it all too seriously.
1 late arrival to comment on the original post 6 months later and start it all over again.
And of course 1 more to say it is off topic!

DWA, that being said, there are some FB groups that aren't like that; most are.

Actually it is supposed to be capitalized and one word. But when I try to do that RC groups will not let me post it. Look at the screenshot and youíll see the error code I get. Try it yourself youíll probably get the same thing.

Weird that they would want to ban that word here.

Next up for the new DJI FPV System is my old wooden TEE copter. It had a more performance than the F550.

Though I have a couple of Phantom 4 Pros, and a Mavic .
I still keep my 450 Tuned and ready to go.
Something about that old school tech, just looks cool in the air.
