Looks like there is 3 of us .... CoD MW2 has been taking my RC time up. The weather here hasnt been that great I usually take that time to fix rebuild and or modify my RC toys. Instead I have been hooked to my 360.

Just want to fly...

I am sad to report that I lost my EZG#2.

I was testing a new 900Mhz 8dbi patch antenna that seemed good up to 500m and suddenly I had a severe video drop out. Image did not come back after a few seconds, so I took off my goggles and searched for the plane in front of me, which I knew was at a viewable distance. But found nothing. Asked a couple of friends that were setting up their planes but they could not find it either.

No, I did not have a spotter, nor RTH, nor a tracker device installed. The GPS tracker was on my backpack though, waiting for the interference test that I would do later that day...

I just had a well configured failsafe, so I turned off my radio to make it glide with a gentle turn, hopping that the wind would bring it back (I always fly against the wind because o this). But I could not see it going down.

I got in the car with a friend using my video gear searching for a video signal. We drove 2km for each side (N, S, W, E) but nothing. When we got back, my other friends volunteered for a group search, so we took 4 cars and drove around for 2 hours. Nothing.

The map with some relevant info is attached. Some comments:
- The Sector "A" is our flying field. It is covered with low grass and just a few bushes. We stand at a high position so we can view the whole area. We also drove/walked around it.
- Sector "B" is dunes of white sand. I also drove around it and climbed the highest dunes to look around. The red tip of the EZG#2 would be vieable at a reasonable distance if it was there.
- Sector "C" is the most probable, but also the most complicated. Many houses and private properties surrounded by walls. If it landed there, I could not see it. Earlier that day, it had a tendency to go there when I let it glide on its own. My failsafe also turns left and the wind goes left as well.
- At position "P1" I got a pure black image on my goggles, instead of just static that I was getting everywhere else. This could be the vtx on without the camera working. But, again, some houses and private properties around it, so I could not check most of it. But if I had to bet on a landing zone, it would be there.
- Position "P2" was where a friend found his glider a couple of years ago, after loosing sight of it in similar conditions. It is a swamp with difficult access, but the adjacent dune is quite high, so I just looked from the top, but found nothing.

Ideally I should fly another FPV plane over the houses check their roofs, but I donīt have another reliable FPV plane to fly over houses and I am probably the only FPV flier at the NE of Brazil, so it will have to wait for me to build another one.

I had my name and phone on it, so who knows, I might get a call someday.

Frank -Einstein Monostar 01-2010 (2 min 52 sec)

The Twinstar died and the Easyglider died...
This is how my friend Frank came to the conclusion the MONOSTAR should be the logical outcome.
The motor is a 1100KV with a 35A Speed controller turning a 11x7 propeller coming from a Radian.
The cabin used to be a Twinjet cabin long ago deceased. This Multiplex Frankenstein happens to fly really well and has plenty of lift and power. Frank intends to use it for FPV so stay tuned :-) . the idea is brilliant, the plane is butt Ugly !
