Looks like good value as well, almost as cheap as Tapatalk...  whistle:

Half calibrated....  redface:

It was calm one day last week so I took her out....

It was quite misty (sand in the air) so I couldn't see front from back very well...

To cut a long story short, it ended up at about a squillion feet high and going away from me... I couldn't even hear it! I couldn't cut the power as it would have landed behind a row of trees in a valley...

Luckily, I have programmed 'Return To Launch' as one of its flight modes... It takes a GPS fix before it takes off and so knows where 'home' is...  So I hit the RTL switch and she flew back, landed and shut down right next to me...  cloud9:

More practice required when i have finished my fiddling....
