On the meadow there is a dip in the ground that I call the Depression of Doom where I get some anomalous behaviour, we think it is a crashed alien flying saucer


Can you avoid flying above that spot?

At our club this spot is unavoidable, it is on the ascending and descending flight path of our strip.

You can't believe the number of planes it caught, sending them crashing in the tall corn; planes that survive this dire zone, are then at the mercy of a terrible Homey on the strip itself when trying to land.

Cheers.

Jeff, even if the battery runs down to power the motors , there still should be more than 9.6 volt left to power the receiver and servos.
It happened in the same spot doing the same maneuver, I think it must be the Sasquatch triangle.
Has there been any sightings of UFO`s, Bigfoot or Homies in that area?

I am going to wear my tinfoil helmet.

I try to avoid the Depression of Doom but when the grass is tall I forget where it is
Some of these strange areas could be damp earth causing an area on sink. I also try to avoid going over water, unless I fancy a swim
Wot, no Depron?

You could wear a baseball cap over it like I do

I would have to cut holes in the cap for my antennas then.

Handles the wind just beautifully and no brownouts.

Beautiful flyer How about getting a #808 key fob camera for the nose, I`m sure you could get some nice steady onboard footage.

I have some fpv cameras that I am sure I could figure out how to strap one on. Not necessarily fly fpv but just record the flight.

I think it is my most stable plane period, other then brown outs.

How much carbon have you got in the P.38? Could you be blanking the receiver antenna?
The reason I suggested a camera in the nose is because it is so stable

It does have a little more then the normal Parkjet . Only happened in that one corner of the field so I am going to blame it on the aliens that are living down there.

Another quick flight with the P-38, just a solid flyer.

Out in a 30k wind, not a problem.
