Well...as much as I don't generally recommend samsung drives due to issues people have with RMA in Canada, I just ordered a 500GB 980 for $60. Hard to pass at that price. It will go in my laptop to replace the tiny slow 128gb that it came with.

Yep, I think their original price was fantasy. All three sides are machined aluminum and then two glass panels. Well see if it was worth the price of admission

Yeah, that is one pricey case, but it looks absolutely stunning , so if you have keep it for a long while.

At that cost, just toss the drive if it dies.
That's what I ended up doing.

Eachine E009 drone of banggood. it was half price...usually $20US and I got it for $10US.

I want to gauge my grandon's reaction as he's obsessed with making paper airplanes. I'm going to get into the RC plane space as well through Flite Test...but that will involve a couple hundred I don't have at the moment.

RC Planes.....get expensive fast.
I unfortunately crashed my Jet HE 162, and gave up after that. Killing a $1400 engine is a quick way to get one to change hobbies.

Quickly hit checkout on a Ubiquiti U6-LR when I got the email notification it was in stock on the UI.com direct store. I did not check dimensions at all though, it's a pretty hefty AP! iPhone 11 beside it for scale.

I've only managed to get a 1.7Gbps link speed on my Intel AX200, which equates to about 750Mbps real-world, haven't been able to hit the full 2.4Gbps, but I'm guessing that's pretty tricky with a 2x2 adapter.

it's not expensive any more. it can be if you want it to be, but I just watched a video put up by Flite Test where they made an 8ft A-10 warthog with MASSIVE EDF motors for about $200 USD. that was in 2018...so probably can add another $100 to that now. it was made out of Dollar Store foam board!

I was deep into the drones, loved to fly them first person then Canada changed the drone laws that means anything over 250grams has to be registered and you have to take a course and get a license plus only fly in zones where its permitted, they basically killed 90% of my drones overnight fucking sucks but I am been thinking about getting a simple drone like the Djimini the one that's 249 grams so its falls under a toy meaning I can fly it in loads of places, I know its not a really good drone for anything but pictures and video which is not what I was about, it was always the racing drones cause there super fast and fun to fly. I sold all my stuff almost 5g in drone's and gear even my Fatsharks goggles which I loved so much for under 1000

Hell I got so into it I had built 3 of my own drones damn I miss it. oh, flight test is a great channel.

PS Soul was talking Jet and those are always damn pricey, I would bet in that video they using a ducted fan much cheaper.

Personally I think are drone laws suck in canada IMHO
