HoverFly GPS Board for sale !!!

Last month I lost my quad when I was doing my first FPV flight after 200mts I lost the control, the futaba do not respond and the quad was carried by the wind. With no gps tracker or video record I could not find it anymore.

I ask for the Hoverfly cancel my order but they did not so that is why my hoverfly gps is for sale, it never been used or live the original box. I do not intend to continue with this project and I need money to finance the other project.

I´m asking $400 for the Hoverfly GPS and free shipping.
I will accept paypal payment only, gives security for both seller and buyer.
If you're interested, please send me a pm.

Thanks

José Luís

That sucks!

Did it go into failsafe and just keep flying away? Did you record the video? Recording the video has saved my ass flying anything FPV.

Yes that right it just keep flying away. I try running to recover the control but the wind was faster than me and I did not record the video.
Now I´m ready if something like that happen again

I had one moment like that flying my Y6 FPV. I was using a short range 2.4 RC link and it didn't respond for a few moments at 400 yards away. I about SH** my pants! It was up there about 300 feet too. But I raised my remote in the air and it came back. Don't give up looking for it. Tell the local hobby store.

That’s where the GPS return home feature would have paid big dividends. I sure hope that everyone programs their failsafe to activate return home is signal is lost.

I think what happen with me is part of the hobby and of the learning process. From now on I will never fly again with at least gps tracker or GPS return home feature. I´m still filling that emptiness in my chest after I realize that there is nothing I could do to bring my expensive toy back especially after spend days and hours trying make it batter.

Ouch, yeah very sorry to hear you lost your bird. I know it doesn't help now, but I always put a sticker on all my planes (and now X-8) that says "REWARD for Return" and then my phone number.
