I can't see it!

We've all done it; lost sight of our plane. Most often we reacquire before disaster strikes but occasionally some of us wind up with a plane in a bag.

I lost sight of my MXC at Montague. When we spotted it, it was in a steep dive on the cusp of terminal velocity. A moment later it exploded. I wish I could claim that this was the only time this has happened but over the years, I've kept the guys at R n R busy.

My latest experience got me to thinking about setting up a switch on the transmitter for those instances when the plane disappears. An "I can't see it" switch.

So here's my question; which surfaces what direction?

While talking with Dean, I recall him saying that those settings would differ with plane type. What might work on an MXC would be different for an SBXC. So, I guess I'm asking two questions since I fly both.
