    Nice job on flying and filming - not to mention very sensible location for your distance test. Great job all around.

    It looks like you ran out of line of site. Is this the case? I know even with my Maxx Range dbs, when I fly terrain very similar to your flight path, once I get a large hill/mtn in the way of me and my bird, I lose my signal pretty quick.
    As said many times by others, just imagine there is a string attached to the bird and your controller. In the above video would the string still be unobstructed?
    I love the video. Very nice area to fly. Well done!

    It was probably that hill. I noticed in the first few seconds of the video there's a large opening to the right. I should have went that way. I was only 4000ft from my own record. I might try again next weekend.

    Sorry. I started a new channel for my flights recently. I have plans for my main channel later. I didn't know I would get into this hobby so much and upload videos.
