"Smartphones sales are cooling, tablets are sinking, and PCs are stagnant — but demand for drones just keeps on growing. As this chart from Statista shows, consumer drone sales in the US have increased sharply over the past few years, and are expected to keep growing."

At Least 10 Times

Now I know where The Big Bang Theory got its idea for flipping the switch at least ten times... from Apple.

Howard: Step one, rapidly flip the calibration switch from the fully up to the fully down positions for at least ten times. 
Sheldon: It actually says "at least"? 
Howard: Yeah. 
Sheldon: Why would they say "at least"? Is it 10 toggles? Is it 100 toggles? Is it 1,000 toggles? 10,000 toggles? 100,000 toggles? 
Howard: Sheldon! 
Sheldon: You see where I'm going with this.

I ordered one of those cheap Baofeng UV-5R radios today. It was delivered in about 30 minutes using Amazon's new Prime Air service.
