    Default Don't you hate it when....

    I ordered a drone online back in March. Then the COVID pandemic shut down their factory and orders stopped shipping.

    I pretty much forgot about it.

    Day before Thanksgiving, a box arrives. HOLY CRAP! It's the drone I ordered 8 months ago!

    Super anxious to fire it up. They won't let you fly it without an SD card to capture video.

    I DON'T WANT TO CAPTURE VIDEO RIGHT NOW! I JUST WANT TO FLY!

    Nope.

    Now... normally, I have SD cards all over the place. Different capacities, speeds, etc.

    I've looked all over this damn house and I can't find A SINGLE ONE now.

    Had to go on Amazon and order one. Won't be here until tomorrow night.

    *sigh*

    Such a bizarre drone to not allow flight without an SD.

    I know.. right?

    The app just says "no SD card detected" and that's it. I go into settings and you can't even turn off the cameras. Only the audio.

    I mean.. obviously the cameras are required to fly by sight, but it doesn't have to record!!! Or is that a new FAA requirement?

    Yeah, my favorite story was a CAD program I ordered.
    It didn't have drivers to print on the old dot matrix, and it didn't have drivers to print on HP laserjets.

    That had to be 90% of printers in existence at that time.
    I mean you expected some delays in drivers in the old days of the PC start-up...but that took the cake.

    I can make a drawing...I just have no means of output? and you shipped this product?
