I had 3 old Dell R710 servers and a bunch of old NESL 230 watt solar panels.
I got a message from someone on Facebook marketplace interested in making a trade for the servers
He was having trouble selling his DJI Mavic 2 Pro for cash, and after another week of not being able to sell it he was willing to trade.
So I got a full kit of a working drone including 4 batteries, and a 1st generation DJI FPV headset.
I’ve taken it out flying already a couple times and I’m already happy with it.
Even though many of the features were similar to my Mini 2 that I had before the 1″ Hasselblad camera sensor is noticeably better. It also appears to fly faster but the battery really only lasts about 20 minutes.
The two things that really suck about it though compared to the Mini 2 is the DJI remote controller, my phone can hardly fit inside the handle so it’s difficult get setup. Also the battery charger took me 10 minutes to figure out how to plug in the batteries, and there’s no positive locking feature so the batteries can easily fall off.
I could buy a better remote controller but that’d be about $1000 for a compatible controller. So it might actually be better if I just sell this Mavic 2 and get a Mavic 3 or the new DJI Avata.
Anyways I traded 3 Dell servers and 4 of my old solar panels for a working $1500 professional drone.
