Roland, you made me laugh and smile. Your experience rings so true of the UAV game which I usually consider to be similar to "snakes and ladders". (also known as chutes and ladders). Congratulations.

I really enjoyed the Latitude 38S video !
Lots of RC Pilots hide their mistakes, epecially if their plane had even a little bit crash landing, they tries to clip off the part of the videos and generally do not let their mistakes come into lime light.

I really appreciate your efforts and patience ! Generally people gets their hearts broken after such crashes which resultes complete damage to so expensive items. But you guys really did not broke and tried and tried and ultimately you got success !

This gives me recall to a very famous story "Bruce and the Spider" I red during my schooling.
