Crash into high voltage transmission line

Hi group,

I had a crash with my Skywalker into a high voltage transmission line (110kV?).
The plane had only minor damage to the canopy.

But the MediaTec GPS seems to be broken. No longer working.

Yesterday I tried a manual flight and everything works fine
on the ground. But being in the air I lost all control
immmediately. The plane kept full throttle and was turning
forever. Thanks to the GPS tracker I got it back.

Any advice what/how to test? I lose confidence in the receiver and APM2.5.

thanks in advance
Wolfgang R.

  • At least the receiver was broken. Got only a signal for a few meters.
