Call Cuda's lawyer immediately. You'll end up with a new Ferrari out of the deal.

Nah, this is aeronautical related so he'll be seeing something like this soon:

Though that also might be related to his choice of shipping packaging for Spiff...

Saw at Costco tonight they are selling a DJI Mavic Air package for $699.

Got home to look into what kind of deal that might be ($100) and found two interesting tidbits:

1) DJI is apparently has a majority stake in Hasselblad.
2) One of the Mavic 2 options comes with a Hasselblad engineered camera on it.

Item 2 might finally be my way in with the wife. The beginning of the conversation went:

Me: so you really want a Hasselblad?
Her: well I wouldn't complain if one landed in my lap.
Me: it's interesting that you put it that way...

:mrgreen:

Of course not having quite the "fuck the FAA" view point I do about drones her first question was where I would fly it (sucks being 2mi from the runway of an international airport).

This was followed by "what would you do with it" to wit I could only shrug...
