    The other night I was playing around.... err... I mean learning more about my Mavic Pro and my girlfriend said "you love that thing, don't you?". to which I replied "I would marry it if I could!". WARNING, this is NOT the right response!!!! I could probably buy a new Phantom 4 Pro+, extra batteries, charging hub, lots of props, DJI Care and who knows WHAT else for what that faux pax is going to cost me!! Just a head's up!

    OH MAN!!, that was a MAJOR fail. You must be young, us older guy's learned long ago to never to let stuff like that pass our lips, does not make for a happy relationship :)

    Actually, I bet I'm older than you, at 62 (everyone says I don't look it).. but she's only 41... I guess I've never learned, which is why I have two ex wives... this one is a definite keeper (no reason to marry her though), I mean heck, she likes this old fart, and she's adorable. ;)

    Of course, being semi-retired, driving a nice car, having a place on the lake and boat just like the one in the picture does seem to attract lovely young ladies. I won't dispute that fact.

    lol, that's pretty funny! I guess I'm a lucky one because my wife knows that my bike and my RC stuff are my mistresses. I always tell her when I buy something new, "Hey, I could be at the bar". Although with the Mavic, it was a mutual purchase because I had to let her get another cat. Well not just a regular cat, a Sphinx that costs pretty close to what I paid for the Mavic. lol.

    I think those are SO cool!!! I actually own a rather rare cat too. A Japanese Bobtail, interestingly worth about the same amount as the Fly More Combo, now that I think about it!!

    Well, I never was attracted to woman that only saw the material stuff I had, I mean, at some point you have to actually talk to them. :)

    Actually you are a bit younger, I hit that awesome number 69 on my next B-Day, but I still drive fast cars, scuba, ride M/C's, and generally have a good time,

    My wife loves to fly mine as much as I do. I never catch it for my toys - quad, computer, cars.

    But of course... if that's all they're after it becomes obvious very quickly and they're gone.

    Congrats, I didn't mention that my GF is an Orthopedic Surgeon. She has no college debt, an old house (built in the 30s) in central Austin worth a gazilliion dollars (location, location, location) and doesn't ask a thing from me... except when I screw up like I did... then we go out for a bunch romantic dinners. I didn't exactly say I mind that. :rolleyes:

    Ummm but you said you would marry it and .... you aren't married to her! Well I'm just shocked by her response. I can't understand how she could have taken that poorly at all.

    She has changed every thought about Mavic when the 1st one sold for double. #2 sold just as quickly and she calls Apple stores every couple hours. #3 is for sale :)

    Nice ride.
    My Phantom would not fit in the saddle bag. Now I will always have my Mavic with me.
