I need RTH and all the goodies like power consumption.
Range Video keeps them for $299 but are out of stock at the moment.
Any feedback appreciated.

Keith, having seen one plane saved by the Eagle Tree Guardian, and knowing Mr_B was also saved by this system, I'm going with ET

Added bonus, I can hide the purchase of three smaller components over time from the wife hehehe.

I have had several uncontrolled landings (crashes) which I could directly blame on the FY21. I believe the barometer can easily get confused on these units leading to almost uncontrolled flight.
Here is one of my flights that went very wrong:

Spastic FY21AP (0 min 46 sec)


Unsure if this only affected my one but I have read on the forums that unless you setup this unit exactly level in the frame it can have some issues. If you launch in RC mode and change to ABM mode the unit has been reported to nose down hard on some units. I have seen this myself luckily I had enough height to prevent crash

Well, we will see... Ive never been a massive fan of HK but now im using there FPV gear ...and flying there plane so I guess improvments have been made. We will see about the Long Ranger when it comes.

I have a very cool LED set with strobs etc that I will be fitting an a landing light from CubeRC in the UK so Im looking forward to building a very cool FPV rig in the coming month... Same story...TO MANY PROJECTS and got to finish my 90` Sbach for the show season !
