Someone walked in the local model shop which contacted us.This guy demanded a meeting with us (the committee) so we went to his house cap in hand and fully apologetic.
The plane fell near him so he felt his life was in danger, and because of that wanted some redress, he would not return the plane and he went to the authorities.

Thankfully the cops thought that the guy was wasting police time. Wanting to press charges for what a toy aeroplane was about to do to him was a something to be laughed at.
The police ended up threatening the guy by charging him for theft if he did not return the plane.

All in all It was a really unpleasant episode...

I am all for being responsible and dealing with reasonable people. normally an apology and some damage compensation (broken window or dented car) should take care of the worst problems and that would be that, but if the thing goes to court...then your livelihood is at stake
That is a dilemma: I want the plane back and I am ready to pay damage if any, but I want to keep my house ! I placed a few calls but didn't shout it out loud. We'll see how it turns out. In Quebec sueing is not a national sport. I should get by with a sorry and paying damage if any. If someone is hurt than it is another story, I couldn't stop thinking about if the plane hit a car moving in the street...

I'll choose my places better next time and to the apropriate checks on video link quality. And fly in new places in no wind.

Any idea about range Art ? How far did you go with your 200 Mw ?
I've been out nearly to the tree line to the east of us, about 1700 feet, and clear as a bell so far. I plan on using it on the Senorita also and will push it out a little farther.

I just got a complete 900 set from RMRC then decided to go to 1.3 because of the wireless ISP in my area. I could have sent you what you need but I just sold the whole thing to a coworker. Hopefully you will get what you need soon..

Inverted "V" parts are on the way. If you need help assembling, LMK.

Bonne chance!

I have LC filter on the slow stick, simple to make... could have sent you parts for that too.

I've ordered a few batteries from hobbypartz.com, free shipping (USA anyway) and prices almost as good as HK.

I think I'll order the LC filter on RMRC along with a battery and try both. Hope the filter will be enough so I could spare weight...never tried it to see if needed, I guess it depends of the ESC ?

RTH I'd like to try for sure ! I'll invest in the dragonlink (need a receiver now so might as well order the whole UHF for a bit more than an AR7000). Then the dragon OSD and I think they do a RTH system...yep they got autopilot ! I want one !

Dragonlink ordered. Left a note to know how long it will take to receive. I guess about a month, they have lots of orders to deliver.
