I enjoy flying the Libelle and following the thread for quite some time now, I fly with the following setup:

Transmitter: new Spektrum DX6
Transmitter Batt: Turnigy 2s 4000mhA pack (originally for the DX8)
Receiver: OrangeRx R615X
Plane Batt: Original Nimh Pack from Dreamflight
Servos: 4 Original digi Servos from Dreamflight

Lately I experienced 2 connection losses in a higher altitude that almost killed the plane (reconnection took 3 sec and plane went down), the only relation between the two events I saw, was that the transmitter showed batt. voltage 7,7V.

As I am not an experienced rc guy I want to ask about your opinion, do you think it's because of low batt (at 7,7V) or anything else like too cheap receiver or something like this.

Thanks and best regards, Colin
Hi Colin. I'd try swapping that Orange rx for something else. A lot of people swear by them but I've had bad luck with mine. Especially the newer R615X. R615 seems to be better but overall I think Orangerx stuff is pretty iffy. YMMV. My advice is to use a Spektrum rx if you have one or a Lemonrx, which is more reliable but still cheap.

If you haven't seen the vids for comparison etc. Also range comments. Maybe worth a look info wise.
