Help!
FPV in North Yorkshire today?

A long shot I know but anyone on here flying an FPV wing near Sutton Bank in North Yorkshire today?

At lunchtime I saw a Zagi-type electric-powered flying wing buzz over from one horizon to another with no sign of a pilot so I guess it must have been FPV.

The scenery round here is great and I'd been planning to FPV it for several years and now someone's beaten me to it! Would love to see the footage.

OR it could have been a runaway wing! And some horrified LOS'er was really wishing he had been a FPV'er! LOL

That was my first thought too.

But then it did seem to be flying with some kind of definite purpose, and I'd have expected it to crash within 60 seconds if it was AWOL.

Funny thing was, the motor was pulsing on and off every 5-10 seconds so it made that tell-tale metallic "ping" every time the motor stopped. This was what made me look up. I'd previously just assumed it was someone chainsawing trees in the distance.
