That IS cool :)

It's been great so far. The RTH and RTL when losing the radio signal both work lol. I was up close to 300 feet and it lost signal. It announces that it lost signal which is scary as heck, and then after a few secs, it says it's going into guidance, RTH. It climbs to the set RTH altitude, positions itself over the take off spot and comes down. Once the signal comes back, I tapped the fly but and I was back in control.

I had a little crash today though. In cold weather the lipo's can not report correctly and drop quickly. I took the battery to about 35%, then the no power failsafe kicked in, which means it tries to RTH. It a few feet fro the ground, and I was able to regain control somewhat. I got it to about 18" off the ground, and it veered left into the snow. The lesson learned is in cold weather, land at 40%.

 When I was into my RC planes, in the winter we would wrap the lipos in rc foam to keep them warmer during flights.  And charge/hold them in our pockets or in the car with the heat on.

 In the summer we'd keep em in a cooler with an ice pack till the flight.
