My P3P and Eds Mavic found a downed plane that was flown on 72mHz and control was lost. Apparently from interference on his freq. His battery checked out OK after it was retrieved, so be warned flying 72 mHz there may be problems in the area to the right of the soccer field as you approach the RR tracks, that is where control was lost.

]We later apparently had some problems in the same are on 433 and 900 mHz and 1.3Ghz on an FPV wing, but Ed managed to get back in control. I was fine on 2.4 and 5.8 Ghz.

MRs really are great at finding planes in 6' tall weeds. I could see Graham pass within 10' of the plane on the ground. We then placed both MRs directly above the downed plane and it was rescued.

Below is a video of the daring Rescue, I hear from the pilot/mechanic that the YouCanDo will be up in the air again soon.

Aloha Osprey,

     That reminds me of the time I rescued two university students looking for a rain gauge site in the Pali behind my house.  They were coming down the very steep mountain side but were on the wrong side of a 3 foot deep and 3 foot wide gully.  On the other side was open space and they could not see it.  Where they were was 1-2 inch bush trunks one foot apart.  Very dense.  They were suffering!  I called them on the cell phone and let them know of the wash-out.  They were so happy!

     Mahalo for the memories!

Aloha and Drone On!

Then DJI has to add an extra channel on RC and AC to control a dropper for Smoke maker for day or light marker for night.
