I could hardly be happier with my P2V+ that arrived yesterday. The environment for this flight a few minutes ago had only a narrow line-of-sight remote control contact cone, if I had line of sight at all when the connection broke at 2500' distance. http://youtu.be/qF8124kPCdc No mods of any kind. I downgraded the controller firmware to version 1.08 to decrease the j-hooking and Toilet Bowl Effect that are inherent in versions 2.0 and 3.0. Flying in central NJ, USA, where the compass magnetic declination is about minus 12.5 degrees. Wind speed about 7 or 8 mph at time of flight with very little gusting, considerably calmer than yesterday. Outgoing leg of flight was downwind, return was upwind. Temperature 42 degrees F.
