No second landing approach
Reading here that some guys getting bored with AP I have quite the opposite feeling ( but still prefere sloping compare to AP)
Living on an Island (Vancouver Island) which is mostly covered with threes, and the most expensive Houses / Resorts are always oceanfront, it requires sometimes a good portion of courage and trust to get a picture.
Thelanding approach has to be perfect the first time or there will be some (model) damage or a brave rescue necessary.
Had to land always just on the little green sport where I stand, sometimes coming in over the steep cliff with backwind.
Landing on the Beach isnít always favourable either due to the large Rocks/ Driftwood and high tides
Pictures from a few AP jobs during the last few days.
I fly mostly over water to get the offshore shots. (2 samples)
Keep my equipment in good shape ( changing Lipo's after 100 cycles) and don't use cheap stuff either (TX/RX ,Servos, Motor, ESC)
Cheapest thing is the Model itself (Standard Magpie with airlerons with some carbon reinforcements, so far 35+ flighthours on it, average flight is ~7-8 minutes = ~280 flights )
I don't fly high altitudes( over ~700 ft), leave this to the 'specialists' and the guys who like to brag about it.
