The first image is a battery charger for multiple batteries (not sure what type of batteries)

The second image is a DJI Mavic drone

The third is a DJI Inspire drone

The fourth is a group of small pixies in a wooded glade playing in dappled sunlight.

I might be wrong on a couple of these :-)

the battery charger was for and included with the inspire
the whole lot went for $1,550 ( inspire / charger / batteries )
probably should be kicking myself
mavic went for $850

Nah... the inspire was overpriced... it's a discontinued model and you can't even get new batteries for it now which means that once the ones that came with it are stuffed, the drone becomes useless (smart batteries are like that).

The Mavic has also been superceded and you can get much more performance these days for a little more money.

Drone stuff gets old *real* quick, especially with the likes of DJI launching so many new models in quick succession recently.

Oh yes, DJI's business model very much includes planned obsolescence -- that's the only way to keep selling into a market that has become saturated.

They regularly discontinue models and replace them with slightly better ones that have different batteries and/or controller systems.
