A single, solitary, And very lonely looking right angle SMA adapter in a plastic envelope.
It got split off a BangGood order to come from another warehouse. When I picked up the crumpled ball of plastic with a shipping label on it my first thought was that it was a parcel that Royal Mail had burst open in the system and just delivered the empty bag again. :)
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

Well, so far, naff all!! But I did get a text message telling me that they attempted to deliver it, and that a card has been left, detailing what must be done to retrieve the package.

Oddly, I had been up for a good hour before the delivery attempt was made. I even saw the big, red Parcelforce van outside my house, stationary for a good 20 seconds or so, before it pulled off.

No doorbell, no knock, no card, no parcel  :angry:

I even paid extra to get the bits here today.... I';m wondering if my hex build will ever be finished...

A quick call to Parcelforce, and the nice lady says she';ll call me back with an update. Those wishing to hold their breath need not apply!  :crossfingers:

Not a lot, which isn';t what I';ve been expecting. Royal mail, or the eBay sellers, seem to be dropping the ball lately. Been expecting parcels since Tuesday... Still nothing.  :-/

YAY!! Parcel force came up with the goodies!! It was our usual driver, and he didn';t call earlier because he knew we';ve got 2 young kids and he thought we were all asleep. He had every intention of calling back later, but his deliveries are computer-controlled and the only way he could skip the drop off was to pretend that he';d tried a delivery. What a nice bloke  :smiley:

Anyhoo, I set him straight, so he know';s we';re up before 6am most days!

Here';s my new ZYX-M FC and a couple of Graphene 5.2Ah 3S 15C jobiess!

Ooh, these are nice boxes. They even give Apple  run for their money!

Not sure... I';ve not tried setting fire to them yet....!  :rofl:

Joking apart, they just look like felt bags. I suppose you could use them to transport batteries inside your fire-proof battery bag (which I know EVERYONE uses, right??). But I';m sure they';re not fireproof, sadly.
