Unboxed 9053 and took outside. Spooled up on the driveway and hovered.
All went well, adjust trims and attempted first flight.

Flew around and got used to controls. I thought I'd see how she went higher up. Gained altitude, went really well, my excitement got the better of me. I took her higher, she went up up up then whoosh, she found some wind up there and went in a SW direction, across the road, over the first house roof, over a second house roof, I began chase, I'll meet her at the end of the block, in the golf course.
Then the wife starts laughing hysterically "It crashed Mick, it crashed".
My heart sank. 9053 MIA within 5 minutes.
Back onto eBay.
