Possibly your current sensor has burned out, has happened to me, that's how I knew I needed a new one. Got a new one and fixed the issue.

What do you mean with "no lift since I had a 90 degree tailwind"?

I meant that the wind along that section of coastline was blowing directly along the coast, so there was no slope lift being generated. Where I launched from faced the breeze, so it was generating lift, but the coastline curves 90 degrees and makes no lift in the current wind direction.

I notice your using a bungee set-up to launch your X8, How many rubbers and what combination do you use, Im sick of hand launching as it too dangerous with this bird.

Cheers Pete

I strongly recommend kevlar gloves(and kevlar forearm protector). I hand launch some kind of monster flying wing with 13" inch propeller and I know that in the event of a propeller hit, all I am going to have is some bruises, but never the mess of clipped muscle and tendons that saw on a picture posted here some time ago.

Yes true Alex, But I also launch up to 20amp of 4S on board and I need two people, and preferably down a slope. I would like to be able to do a one man operation and also make it safer at the same time
