    Last night's test flight with new PMU and IOSD worked fine, and it started to drizzle so I quickly landed and came inside. Just plugged in a battery today and no loud happy chirps ... instead, a single repeating beep. Anyone know what that signal means?

    After I calm down I will tear the whole thing apart and perhaps remove, retest, and then reinstall the mods.

    I was finally happy with this setup. and I have some new batteries on order. I hope I don't have to send them back.

    Help!!

    Do you think it got wet enough inside to cause a problem?

    I completely took it apart and uninstalled the new gizmos and fired it up. Worked fine. I reinstalled the components with the Mother of All Solder, and I had three flights tonight of 9 min, 9 min, and 12 min over the Hudson River here in NY. Whew.

    You have nerves of steel. Not sure I would of braved a flight over water quite so soon after the things in the previous posts.
