    I recently received the Commercial UAS Logbook for recording maintenance and use as a pre-flight checklist and I realized I did not have 'nicknames' for my copters.

    Since I have two YTH this is important. I decided to name my Q500 4K "Quatro" my first YTH was downed by a hawk on it's maiden/first flight so he has been dubbed "Hawk" and and my second H is named "Truth".

    I attached labels to all controllers and machines

    Yes, well, in the somewhat traditional of planes and ships, I think females names would be appropriate. Not because many H's are finicky and unpredictable, lol.

    So my first, a Pro, is "Wendy". I have a spare, std. H, as yet unnamed.

    I imagine some H's have been called names their owners cannot post.

    I understand a ship with female nom de guere but a truck needs a man's name.

    I also thought of Hector for the "H" but it lacks imagination.

    I guess maybe I have broken tradition by referring to my Q as a him, hence the name Wilbur & Orville

    I've never given any inanimate object I've owned a name. But I've never owned a boat or plane! When it comes to things like our drones or even my car(s) or motorcycle(s). Same thing no name....

    I guess if I had multiple Typhoon Hs I'd identify them as Typhoon H-1, Typhoon H-2... etc...
