    Well this bird and me have a history of mishaps but this one wasn't so bad .
    Been flying the 3's so much I decided I would take her this morning and do a run .
    Well about 3000' out started having app issues and finally lost it . Had switched
    failsafe to manual several days back so had to do something else to hit RTH .
    Never came back .Thought Oh Crap ! Tried my tracker and had made the mistake
    when I started out to cut it off instaed of on . It was asleep .
    Most of my long runs are from here as I'm high and don't have to go high flying down that valley .

    Well had my 1 year old grand with me so had to wait about 7 hours to go back and look again there which I had marked on the road and was still in app

    I got a brand-new P3A once after crashing one really hard,unrepairable,I decided this was going to be my best bird ever and I named it lucky bird!had connection issues from the very start in places I've never had problems before with any aircraft. Ended up having to return it. Not so lucky after all!
    MIA, maybe it is all in the name

    Yea db this one I just keep rebuilding, I call it Mia3 but really about Mia8 :)

    Just goes to show it's hard to kill a P2V!!! And this is kinda why I've decided not to upgrade my gimbal. I'm kinda growing fond of the bumpy vid. Congrats again Dirk!!!

    Thanks Mark and yea they are tough . I had a RPG on her the last time she fell and busted it up and just went back stock this time
    being I have the others . I think it fly's better stock or rather faster with the stock gimbal as it's lighter .
    Mia has been one heck of a ride :)
