That whole area of the hobby is really sketchy. COME BUY THIS EXPENSIVE MAGICAL TRANCEIVER THAT'll DO EVERYTHING AND PIPE STATS INTO YOUR PHONE WOOOO!!! (does none of the shit they promise other than count laps when you're there.)
I was just thinking it'd be nice to have one for my MiniT 2.0, but then I looked at prices and noped the fuck out

I loved knowing my exact lap times but that's all I ever got out of it. Well that and I snuck onto the admin console and renamed my buddy to "Turd Pants" and that would blare over the PA on his first lap every time he ran. :mamoru:

wait transponder or transceiver :hmm:
So the receiver was stuck to the square you see in the buggy. The transponder that I'm talking about had a little square stuck to the top of the servo. When I was dusting off the buggy I thought it looked dirty and removed it. Some of the earlier pics I posted probably have it showing.

oh I guess I'm calling the receiver a transceiver because it goes both ways and I'm a super nerd :o

My Air 2S came back from repairs today. DJI opted to send my battery back, along with a brand new battery.
Now I have 5 batteries for this cunt. :bowdown:

Tourers go a little quick with 21.5, but a buggy ?
Maybe it's a way to get back to basics? Every time they make a class people go hog wild spending money on cutting edge tech to get an advantage. You get a bunch of precious douchbags smearing endangered whale jizz on their tires and bragging about their unidirectional battery wiring and it lames out the class. Maybe this is slow enough to finally discourage that?
