    Most know I lost my bird couple weeks ago. Was fixed last week and I've been very cautious now with wind and going long. Checked conditions and was perfect at time. 7mph wind at 1000 ft. I'm like let's roll. A little under 11k and lost video. I was using goggles so I realized after bjrd came back I was not actually facing it. So no wonder I lost video. Remote was still was at 100%

    It's a great spot. I made 2 errors. One was when I was using goggles. I was not facing the bird. That's why I lost video. Other I should have waiting just a little longer. Could have gotten so night flying in.
