Wow that was awesome, very impressive! Even more impressive that 2.4ghz with booster can get similar range to UHF. What camera are you using? That was really nice quality and did you use any special video software to clean up the video?

Very nice, my compliments! Mind if I ask what OSD is that?

Any details on the setup, Maxi Swift, what motor? Batts? Etc.

I'm sorry, that was meant to be a joke, you don't actually think I don't know Elcheapo do you? Or the RVOSD?

Batteries are 2x 5000mAh + 1X 3600mAh.
Plane is Maxi swift with some work on it. Stiffed with few carbon spars, balsa elevons, oracover, retracts.

About the risks I toke I think probably deep inside me I want to start working on the zephyr that it is waiting on my desk. .

This are the pictures of the maxi as it is now.
