    Dodged all the neighbors houses to get to my son's friends house; just a little over a mile (as the drone flies). Made the trip twice because my son's friend didn't believe that we made it. Landed with 31%. Totally stock aircraft with calm conditions.

    Looking forward to many more flights, will be in Kauai in a couple weeks and hoping to film some whales just offshore; if they come close enough and the drone goes far enough!

    Hoping to capture lots of fishing adventures from small tributary rivers to far offshore with schooling Albacore!

    Good job staying away from houses. The less contact with humanoids the better.

    That's impressive. My best so far is 5805 with a stock P34K in a rural area before disconnect & RTH.

    Before yesterday my best was 6275 feet but I really haven't been trying to get out that far would like to try out the argtec antenna setup manly to help the video chop/lag I get after RTH. It usually presets the rest of the flight till I land turn ac off and switch batteries. I also live in a fairly rural area as my flight log will show
