Aeroscout S ArduPilot Waypoint Mission with Auto-takeoff and Auto-land (4 min 50 sec)

Just a quick circuit testing out my new FPV setup with landing gear removed for the snow. If you look carefully you can see the Catskill Mountains in the far distance.

Aeroscout S Noob Fail (5 min 14 sec)

I caught two major lucky breaks here:
  1. The tree was the other side of the chainlink fence, but reachable from the side I was on.
  2. The canopy with the RunCam 4K attached landed on my side of the fence.
Apart from a nick in the tail and a dent in one wing, the plane emerged largely unscathed. Unfortunately, the next time I flew it, I lost control coming out of a roll and dove it straight into the ground because I didn't have enough altitude - DUH!

Replacement fuselage is on backorder...
