Why did you get a computer from Dell? They are likely the most incompetent at things. I had three of their computers fry themselves in the exact same way. The second two were replacements for the previous ones. I gave up on them after that.
Yes, I reported the issues and ended up getting money out of it.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.
Do questions with multiple question marks annoy you???
Today appears to be Friday the 13th, in my family it was always taken to be a lucky day. My Grandad was rescued from the British Channel on Friday the 13th & the South Atlantic on another Friday the 13th, different years in WWI. The first due to a visit from a uboat the second due to a boiler explosion. Makes you think sitting at a desk is safer.
POWERUP DART is a conversion kit for paper planes that makes them awesome. Fold a small paper plane, attach the DART, and fly around your backyard, office or park with impressive accuracy. Do cool tricks with an awesome paper plane jet you fold yourself.
Nothing is safe from deliberate destruction. It was meant in another way.
This[^] is one of the smallest collective pitch model helicopters. It's not so expensive and weighs only 39g, including the tiny battery. This small mass also makes it extremely nervous and even harder to fly than larger helicopters.
It's also 'indestructible'. Due to its weak motor and tiny weight, it can survive a crash without notable damage. Sometimes it's caught by grass and does not even hit the ground. Finding the little flea in higher grass is the bigger problem. Even if it is damaged, the parts often are better paper clips and don't cost very much. Installing them also is not a big deal.
So it comes down to:
+ The model and parts are at the lower end of the price scale.
+ They are 'indestructible', saving you lots of money and frustration.
- Small models are usually hard to fly. There is not much inertia to stabilize them and they react very quickly to the tiniest control inputs.
+ Once you learn to control a flea, you can fly anything.
