Whoops!
Damp landing.

I was flying my escale phoenix at Wardy hill today and the battery died at low level, going the wrong way, just over the next field.

I managed to turn it, I probably should not have as it decided that the drainage ditch bordering the two fields was as far as it was going to fly.
To add insult to injury, I had not turned the camera on before the flight so I didn't get the splashdown on vid

Never mind

The battery got damp, bulged, so I scrapped it.
It was a gutless Art-tech thing a couple of years old, so it owes me nothing.
