Police Drone Use

"No UK Police or other law enforcement have ever used drones, let alone any from DJI."

Erm yeah that's not true at all. Some of them use DJI too.

Lipo Temps

Lipos hate the cold! In freezing temps they can drop below the 3v per cell threshold from which they won't recover. You need a heater for your heater.

A few have mentioned the torrent of crap that they ram through your letter box every month, but does anybody get as many sales calls from them as I do? I've had 6 calls this month..6!

[Ropey accented Chap]...Well Sir, we have been looking at your account...

[Me]...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGggggggh...

(slams down phone)

Really not suprised they have got a few more sign ups, they have no doubt beat the poor buggers into submission with there shower of marketing shite.
