    Took my baby further out than ever before. Flying from one island to another. Had some scary moments on the return leg where failsafe kept kicking in. I think because I used a windsurfer antenna on the remote, and wasn't pointing quite right as I drifted a little bit south on my way home. Made it back with 18 % battery left, so not bad :)

    First off the video is boring. Second how does 10465 feet equate to 5Km?? Looks more like 3.189732km

    It's in meters, not feet.

    But it's boring and service no real purpose. Well maybe for a very short ego it does.

    I see no real purpose in you stating this for a second time either?

    I thought it was pretty exciting. Okay, pure footage value, maybe it's a bit samey, but that isn't what's amazing here. The amazing thing is the distance that little thing made. Makes you realise how incredible the technology here is
