    it took half your battery to get there . Was it close to empty by the time you got back?

    I went out 10,300 feet and still had full signal. I was going 22 MPH out and about 37 MPH back. I had 39% battery left when I landed.

    Just curious; what are the green strips in the plowed fields?
    Are those irrigation ditches?
    I saw couple of squares as well, but those were for the power line towers.
