    38900" is 7.37 miles and if you look at the flight log ya see that was 1 way and he made it back .
    Just guessing he has a battery mod . Would like to see his TX set-up though .
    Is good he made it back as the whole trip is over water .

    Wow! That is some distance. Is DBSMODs located in WPB? I live in Boca Raton. Anyone get together to fly their drones? I just got mine last week and I already want to mod it! :D Send me a PM if there is a group I can join - would love to come out. Thanks in advance.

    O.k now for the details everybody wants to know.
    (1) what battery mod got you that distance with 18 minutes left
    (2)did you fly Atti mode the whole way? It show Atti in yer screenshot.
    (3) it's been said that Attie isn't the way to fly long-distance GPS mode is, do you disagree
