    That doesn't explain why they're more crash-prone.

    Perhaps Singuy's post was supposed to say "crash-proof".
    The $1,000 drones are not more crash prone. They pretty much fly themselves.

      How does that work? Do you program a flight pattern somehow? That's pretty cool if you want to get aerial video.

        you can. it's almost like setting the pattern in google maps. You need to buy higher end controllers for that. Either set flight patterns or fly yourself. If there's a gopro or camera connected, you can see the output on your controller

        They have first person drone races which is becoming popular.

I've re landscaped a retaining wall, dug trenches for my gutters, spread gravel around my driveway, excavated for my pool, and plowed snow with it. I couldn't imagine doing all that by hand.
              I'm leaning towards a full size Case or JD unit. We live on a big farm, have lots of projects I could take care of with it.

                I only have a few acres, so the compact model is perfect. Plus it fits nicely in the garage if you take the ROPS down.

                  I'm in the middle of building myself a RetroPie gaming set up. I really wanted a NES Classic, but I couldn't get my hands on one at retail price, and since they've been discontinued, the price on the secondary market has sky rocketed. Someone at work suggested looking into installing RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi, which would let me play all my old Nintendo favorites from my childhood as well as games from several other gaming systems. I might even be able to get TI99/4A games on it, which were the first video games I ever played.

                  So far, I've got a Raspberry Pi with RetroPi installed and two wireless controllers set up. I can play Bubble Bobble and Tetris on it, so I'm happy. Getting it to this point was much easier than I thought it would be. Now I just have to decide whether I'm going to buy a case for it or try to get my old, broken NES to work as a case. I've found videos of other people doing what I want to do, but working with hardware is a bit outside of my comfort zone.

                    My next toy will be a wave runner. I plan on selling my motorcycle and scooter, and buying a used Yamaha.
