Today i had another 30Km flight!!!
Now some data.
The plane covered the first 30 km with a speed of 30-32m/s and the second 30km(returning)
with a speed of 21-23m/s.
Total capacity used was 13608 mah by the motor, autopilot, gps and 9xtend modem. The servos,camera and video tx were powered from another 3s lipo pack and used about 2500 mah
The modems were set at 115200 and i had a solid link all the way.
Video was also good although the 3w video tx was swapped with an 1W unit as it interfered with the IR stabilization (ADC measurements went crazy).
I almost lost the plane as it spiraled down when i engaged AUTO2.
Over all i am now confident that 30km (30 + 30km) are now a practical and relatively easy with an
electric airplane.
