Bought a small (160 g) drone at Aldi. This one flies for 10 minutes and the remote connection has a max distance of 40 m.

Battery in my 2010 MBP 13 swapped, should be good for another 10 years.

Completely dazzled, upgraded the 2011 MacMini Server (5,3) to 16 GB ram and a 1 TB SSD.

Positively flies.
