55.1km Wild wind - UAV Volantex RANGER 757-4 using Li-On (LG MJ1 18650)

Breaking my previous distance record, this time pushing to 55.1km starting at the cliff side the towards another new district that i'm going to explorer for the first time. Unfortunately the weather condition is extremely wind unlike any wind i've ever encounter, knowing the risk flying in such windy condition at such distance is pushing the small mini Ranger 757-4 to its borderline perfomance. But since i drove this far away from home just to reach this epic place i'm not going to waste this moment and took a risky bite hoping it would survive throughout the entire flight with limit amount of power because i did some calculate that 55.1km average was a spot on distance per-power but in windy condition yet to consider about it. During the flight due to heavy wind the Ranger flew slightly flew crabbing to it sideways at certain area but it got even more upon returning home due deteriorating power. Fortunately after more than one house the Ranger survive its longest autonomous flight with 15% power left to spare on Li-on battery. That was most awesome windy flight i ever had. Oh btw almost missed that jungle radio tower on its way home but no worries i did my math calculation, lol.
