    dragger201 If it ain't broke, don't fix it??? You kidding?

    One of the drawbacks for flying is that I do most at the farm where I work. So when I'm home I'm not flying. Talked with my wife.........she has no problem with me flying a little drone around the house as long as it has full blade protection..........re: full enclosed blades.

    So I took a chance on an "open box" Eachine E010 mini for $14 which included priority shipping. Any way.........that thing came today. So I charge up the battery and install it. 3 motors turn up to speed no problem. Start looking at the 4th one and notice that there's a strange kink in the positive wire. Sure enough it's broken INSIDE the insulation. So get that repaired and put the battery back in and all 4 motors turn up to speed no problem. But it won't lift off. This is where I find out why it had been returned.............the props are on the wrong motors. Switch the props out and have been having fun with the cat. She's swatted it out of the air twice so far and it's only 9:30pm.

    More fun then a grown man should have with his clothes on..................

    There is something so satisfying about flying a mini around the house and exercising the animals (in my case a Cairn Terrier). No matter how many expensive and sophisticated quads I have, I don't think I will ever get tired of it. Guilty pleasure....

    Ive got one of these coming over on a slow boat right now.
    Really looking forward to it...gotta fly inside a lot or in small spaces because I live in a city.
    Glad its as fun as it looks!
    Thanks, Jake
