How many drones does it take to change a light bulb? That’s the wrong question. How many light bulbs does it take to finally get it right? For Marek and Sven, the number was nine. While I was watching Alabama do their thing against Texas A&M over the weekend, Marek and Sven were busy getting two drones to change a lightbulb. Don’t worry; Sven wasn’t crashing DJI Phantoms.

The pair spent the better part of a day with an Eachine E30W, and the result was the same. Crash after crash. Broken light bulb after broken light bulb. The Syma X5C-1 was much better suited for the light bulb changing task and knocked it out in about 10 minutes.

Both drones cost about 50 bucks. And both look like they can take quite a bit of punishment. If you’re a little skittish about taking the new $1,000 DJI Mavic Pro into the skies, pick up one of these first. Slamming $50 into a tree is a lot easier to swallow than a mishap with a Mavic Pro. I’ve brushed too close to a pine tree with a Phantom 3 and my heart stopped for a few seconds.

Alright guys, time to step your game up. I challenge you to change batteries out of a smoke detector without the rage-inducing beeping sound going off. Good luck.

What common, but pain in the ass house chore should Marek and Sven tackle next?
