That's great news mike. What a shame though that all this disruption came from a little brick of reactive metal that probably cost no more then 30. I hope your back to status quo soon.

IMHO very bad idea to use a LIPO
unattended lipo indoors = bad idea
Forgetful distracted kids leaving a lipo on = bad idea

A sealed lead acid "alarm" type is a better idea or Li-ion

If it flies.....I can crash it
so did my second round of FPV flight today.....feeling much better about it and some great views on a lovely blue sky day. I would estimate I made it to around 300 ft up and no more than 1000m away but I really need an ODS to assist on range.
video quality was perfect with no issues....and I even made my first FPV landing on my 4th flight of the day.
The bixler was getting thrown around some by the thermals or gusting winds but all went well.

i love the idea of the above racing....but i might need a little more stick time before trying that......and a much faster airframe than my current tri....unless I can use my bixler.

I looked at the price of some of the Hyperion's. Even with the discount they are still eye watering!

I don't know how other people have got on with Hyperions, but the ones I have tried have been no better than the cheaper brands anyway......

I'd give it a go.. I think I'll need more than just spare props though.

I was looking to see where these guys came from .. Melboune - Yep that explains everything!
