    Do you really mean 13000 or 1300 ft flight, I don't know what kind of battery you have but mine would run out of time trying to get it back.....

    there is a mission uploader utility application that runs on your pc.. you run it, connect your flytrex via a usb cable to the pc, search for the com port (it's like com22 or similar).. choose it.. then click connect.. and wait for it to finish.

    Also, on an autopilot flight it is easy to get over 30,000 feet of total flying travel (over 6 miles) with one battery (I've done it)

    Sigh. there are 5,280 feet in a mile... everyone's math so far is horribly in outer-space.

    The live programmer is software.. it's a zip file.. http://www.flytrex.com/static/downloads ... rammer.zip

    you download it, and unzip it.. it has an exe and a dll file.. you double click on the exe file to run it... then as I said above.

    I would send that screenshot to support@flytrex.com -- I would guess you need to update your .NET library on that pc. I didn't have to update anything and I use it on a Windows7 ultimate laptop -- or try another pc if you can.

    Their is something I felt when analysing on my flytrex profile that it uploaded 2 missions instead of one and dropped some bit of the flight now it could be two issues either the power got cut or the 3G to 2g played a role something weird

    the mission uploader will (should) be able to help their website sort things out when it is able to run correctly.

    13,000 = 2.4 miles. Very doable.
    Phantom batteries last at least 15min, and can easily fly over 20mph. That should give you a safe range if 5 miles total.
