    Forza Horizon code on ebay.

    Tried to redeem and it's already been used!! Grrrr.

    Must be all automatic too as best offer was accepted, then code sent instantly. And seller not answering my question yet.

    I'm impressed! Having gotten thoroughly pissed off with mini RC copters, I was doubtful about the claims of it's stability but, after just 10-15 minutes of flight time, I'm getting used to it.

    Of course, I bought a crash pack and extra batteries to go with it :D

    TP-Link AV1200 Powerline Ethernet adapters. I'm moving office into half the master bedroom sometime soon, and wasn't looking forward to running twisted-pair from the ground floor living room to the second-floor bedroom. These mean I don't have to: gave 'em a test today from my current first-floor office, and they easily coped with my ~72Mbps/19Mbps broadband connection. Makes my life a lot simpler!

    Some proper JIS type screwdrivers to fix my Olympus 35RD and other Japanese cameras and lenses in the future. I've been ruining poor JIS screws with my regular Philips screwdrivers for too long now.

    Also I got a great deal on a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 35/3.5 (with case)

    Looks super duper sharp from what I've tested so far.

    (Takumar cheesecake :D)

    I looked at that for ages before wimping out! I'd like to hear a bit more about what you think about it in a week or two when you've really got to grips with it.

    Will do, but it's very easy to learn the basics fairly quickly - I had it hovering at a few inches and weaving in between the legs of the dining room table and chairs last night. Probably as much luck as judgement was involved (if not more), but I was struck by how quickly I managed that.

    Needless to say a rotor guard is essential. As is a crash pack and spare batteries - you only get about 5 or 6 minutes flight time from a single charge on the 370mah batteries - I have six plus a multi-battery charger. Apparently the 500mah batteries offer no extra flight time, probably due to the increase in weight.

    BTW the crash pack plus around another £10, for more motors and a spare pcb, gives you all* of the bits you need to build a second craft, if you don't mind a spot of soldering - mine are already on order.

    *if you forego the camera and some LEDs

    Do you think college would let me get a mini-quadcopter for engineering projects (like PID control systems etc)? Anything to lighten the load on my wallet... ahem.
