I have lost two planes (one I got back after more than a year!). In both cases, I did not have an OSD onboard, AND I did not have my name and number AND I wasn't recording the live flight on the ground. I was stupid.

Now, I have an OSD with GPS on anything I fly beyond LOS and I record every flight with my Japan DVR, I have my name and number on the plane in waterproofed cards in multiple spots, I have a LMA (Lost Model Alarm), two ultra bright, self powered LED flashers and a FMKit UHF beacon. I am NEVER again going to lose a plane without any systems or capabilities for recovering/finding it. LOL!
