Last Friday I lent my RC and Tiny Whoop to one of our CNY Drones mentors working with an 11 year old.  At first, I had a sick feeling when I saw the kid walk back to me with my lanyard in one hand – the one that came with my Taranis X7.  He dropped it on the table in front of me.  The controller in his other hand.  I admit that my next thought was that he dropped my new RC.  Then the mentor walked up and took my RC and his own lanyard.  Click and a little quick strap adjustment and away they went.  I get it now – time to spend $5 (+ shipping).  Especially a good idea for a RC that is used by many – like a class, a family that shares their equipment or group you could be working with.  All you teachers out there – this appears to be money well spent.  And – thanks to John, here’s a video on the very strap mentioned.
