Hollister Flight Overview


Just for the heck of it I put a GPS on my FrSky receiver and did some practice flights with my Xplorer.

These were just normal flights, nothing really far out. Take a look at the attached photo, more distance away than I would have thought. About 800M, or 2,600 feet -- or about 1/2 mile. It also records signal strength, at no time was it under 50db (warnings appear at about 40db). Makes me more confident in my Horus X10S.

Interesting ...

Thanks for posting, Don. It is interesting to see the flight path. What receiver are you using? Are you just using the two internal antennas? I just purchased an X10s btw.

I am using the G-RX8 glider receiver. FrSky stated all RX receivers have better sensitivity than previous X-series. That explanes reduced range with the X4R-SB in my El Niņo (later swapped out for this receiver)

I use the dual internal tx antennas. In my testing they seemed marginally better.

Have fun with your X10S.

Can you tilt the Google Earth view to see the altitude attained?

Here is the side view. Greatest height was 310 meters. The long-distance areas were under 150 meters generally.

Enjoy,
