    hot dayum! beat my personal best distance made it to 3040ft!!! Then I starting losing FPV but not control.... but 3040ft is last reading i saw and then my bird headed for home on its own...

    reason I am stoked is I spotted a river running through the woods and have been trying to reach it since i first flew high enough to discover it...I have got close but today I was over that sucka in the middle of freaking nowhere :D

    **** I'm struggling to reach 700 feet without a signal loss flying in Chicago. Must be too much interference or something. How high straight up have you gone ?

    1450 is not bad at all, have you changed the software to allow higher?
