How about the GPS receiver if placed horizontally on the nose ? At least one could try to RTH and let it circle until the lens clears ?

There is a little volume slider on the bottom of the video. Mute it if it offends you.

You can see this from the shadows at certain parts of the video.
Are you flying it backwards ?

If so, does it handle better ?

Also, what is the name of the band, the song, and the album name for the song you play in your Urban Nights 2 video. The one in the parking garage.

I'm not sure, drove by and she had her calf and others around her still - she will be one day for sure......

Wasn't her fault but she sure was angry, I remember watching her pluck the control arm off like it was nothing!
She stepped on the right wing and it was bowed, some 90 degree days and bricks got that close.

I flew it last Saturday but she rolled over and went in on take-off, had a broken XT60 connector on teh current sensor.

But I pulled all the FPV gear off, I'll fix it and maybe put it back but my efforts are going into a new Zephyr, I still have a 12 mile/6800' flight to do.
