I always underestimate my distances so there is no doubt how far I fly

Thomas takes his customer records very seriously but stopped giveing away
Free rxs to those who go the distance and return home

Besides Roberto montel took the records to such far distances it kind of blew everyone out of the competition, he is expert long range guy, you can see his name on hall of fame many times
But he use OSd and Rth

30 km away with no OSd is not hard to do at all

But does take good navigation skills and how to set up a fpv plane and ground station properly

I fly long range long ago , one of the pioneers of long range, which I am proud of

But now just fly short range, no further than 9 km at most now

Long range can be boring, but very exciting when done with no OSd
