Hi All
I went to my 1st XC contest today and had a blast whaching how high and far you guys fly these things. One thing I did not like at the field we where at it has about a 500 foot of tree you have to drive thru to get onto the corse, We lost sight for a few sec but was able to find it after about 5 sec, But the team behind us lost sight and never regaind sight and after about 15sec you could hear their VIARO going off then nothing, they are thinking it blew apart in a dive.
I for one like the idea of the extra servo and a handful of power manly to save the plane by being able to find it again. but at that point you should end the flight and record your spot. snice you would of lost the plane at that point anyway but this way you have a shot at saving the plane.
