    Darwin strikes again

    there is a documentary about him on amazon that talks about the first rocket: https://www.amazon.com/Rocketman-Mikes-Mission-Prove-Earth/dp/B07VWCCW1V iirc he can't shut it off.

    we have had to buy non-oem batteries for our company owned p4s as the dji ones seem to be non-existent. so far they have been fine. however we use a 4 batt aftermarket charger for it but we had to modify it to fit the aftermarket batteries. there was a little piece of plastic that prevented them from being fully inserted. they fit perfectly in the p4, though. we also have one of those fstop chargers for the mavic. it also works fine but is a little loud.

    The F1 2020 thread

    I was trying to find this before I posted: https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.whats-new-on-f1-tv-for-2020-including-early-bird-discounts.OaVJCiuTTibisTcLc9ZXs.html 25% expires 2-28. You will need a newer roku to run the app.

    f1 tv now has a roku app! I signed up friday and have been using it to catch up on the testing sessions. so far if has been pretty good. I'm anxious to see how the interactive features work out. they are running a 25% off coupon right now - EARLYBIRD25 that expires in a day or two.

    if you pay for cable then you should have access to the espn app. you can watch all of the races there.

    I've had the best luck with oem blades over the more expensive icons, etc. they are usually cheaper, too. ymmv.

    Tom, the p4 is a really nice, very capable aircraft that should do whatever you ask of it. sounds like you got a decent deal. I have access to a p3, p4, mavic, typhoon h and lots of other home built quads. I've got lots of hours on my p3 and it was my goto aircraft until I started getting more time on the p4. I think I like the p4 now more because it has longer battery life and is faster. but as I get more time on the mavic I could see this changing again... have fun flying!

    fpv goggles. I use these with my p3: http://headplay.com/ you really want the older headplay hd, not the newer ones that aren't hd. you'll need the hdmi adapter for your tx, too: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1173533-REG/dji_cp_pt_000241_part_54_hdmi_output.html?ap=y&smp=y&lsft=BI%3A514&gclid=Cj0KCQjwvo_qBRDQARIsAE-bsH8xRpCqaD8-V4HouZpVEoaGYJD4TpcAWtT5Q6hNtMQUpjgJX79jLcgaAp5eEALw_wcB there are other hd goggles but I really like my headplay hd. either way you'll need that module.

    after watching the latest formula e race this weekend I've come to the conclusion that formula e appears to be amateur hour. everything thing from the drivers, the race officials, race course, track crew and the announcers. Every race this year has been red flagged due to bush league driving. I don't know if it is the way the courses are designed (extremely tight), the drivers or both, but a lot of the passes are basically drivers barging in to the tight corners and pushing the car along side into the wall. not all, but that seems to be the way to pass in formula e. this inevitably leads to a red flagged race with the race officials scratching their heads for 10+ minutes to figure out the order. it really detracts from the event. when the drivers are actually racing it can be pretty exciting as the cars are all pretty much equal. there has been a different winner in all 6 races thus far.
