I was flying inverted with my Diamond 2500. did a dive for increased speed for an inverted loop.
Opsh. dropped the accumulator. And GPS reciever. But not the logger.
Here is the last 2sec of flight and a 100x50m area to search. (300x150feet). So far no success.
The logger states height 100m speed 78km/h
After the glider slowly glided 10-20sec the whole way down stable, inverted. A little hard touch down. but not too extrem. Easy fixed...

2010-10-05 After many hours search we found the accumulator and GPS!
Thanks Ronny for helping me!

It was almost exactly in line with last position in the logging, but much more far away!. The logger must have lost about three seconds, not only half a second that I first thought.

Red line= lat seconds of data logger.
Yellow line 173m of distanse to impact point.

Sunset. A little too windy. But had to test... Everything is ok with the bird.

I made a video from the flying with my grandchildren. Never put a half full (half empty) acc in to the airplane when showing and filming! My ESC does not warn. And 12V cut off is too low!
Diamond 2500 (7 min 15 sec)

Second video is from landing with Flaps. I lost her once due to to high servo current that killed the reciever! I have Flaps down, Aileron up and elevator down.
