    it was a planned one way flight. full control right down to the ground the other end nearly 10 miles away



    also did a 5 mile round trip , with the P3 ( Horizon battery mod )

    I cant see how much battery you had left but what would happen if you lost signal near the end and RTH activated?

    hey guys , since we have show you it is possible to fly these ranges and land under control, we will be doing a contest in this type of flight on Flytrex , called the Horizon UAV Golf Challenge.

    since this is for the advance pilots we will do a qualifying round first . Here are the base rules.

    The pilot stays at the launch site.
    there qualifying round is to be at least 4 miles.
    We will provide the ground Base board artwork which must be used.
    we will do a point system for the range and a score for the landing on the target , a bit like an archery boss.
    there must be the actual flight video, uncut or edited,with the supporting flytrex data of the flight.
    we will offer 3 prizes , 1st, 2nd and 3rd .

    1st prize is a Phantom 3 standard .
    2nd prize a Flytrex 3G live
    3rd prize voucher for kit of your choice at Horizon .

    we may adjust the rules before the launch and the full rules will be announced on the flytrex challenge page.


    Look out for the contest on the Flytrex challenge
