    So there was a drone above the house and I was outside and I heard a buzz so I thought it was a wasp, but it’s too cold. A big drone sittin in the sky. Im wearing a bright orange shirt, so I waved at it, and then it flew away right after I waved. I am relatively rural so I’m not sure why. Just thought I’d put this out there to see if this happens to you all

    Is it following you, showing up at your work, when you go to the supermarket?

    Yea it followed me on 81 to work and when I went to Buffalo Wild Wings last night it was there too.
    Nah, it was just odd. I’ve kinda wanted one but they are so pricy I can’t justify it. Anyone have one they would recommend?

    I have a dji mavic pro that I have had for a few years. It is outstanding. The furthest I have ever gone with it is 3 miles, and it still had a full signal. The ocusync transmission that the mavic pro uses is pretty bulletproof. The mavic air is a little cheaper, but is noisy, has less battery life, and uses wifi which is glitchy. The mavic pro is a very reliable, safe, and tough drone. I have flown mine to the tops of local mountains to check out wind turbines. It is amazing what they can do.

    X2 on the DJI Mavic Pro! They have an amazing amount of tech for such a small package.

    Get you a drone and chase it down next time you see it. Be safe and don't crash it around those kids playing!
