    After this morning's flight I went back through the FR to see what was what. Turns out I set a world record on March 15, 2015. Flying without GPS, mind you, and at an altitude of only 5 feet, I flew 29,685,722 feet (over 5622 miles) and covered that distance in a mere 4 minutes--that's a blistering 84,330* mph! :cool:

    For you modifier fans, this feat was accomplished without any alterations to the antenna or battery--all stock equipment! :p

    Considering the above, how can we be confident the information being recorded to the "Black Box" is accurate? Aren't those logs and their information used to base whether an incident is covered under warranty or not? o_O

    Not making any accusations, just thinking out loud.

    *Is my math correct?

    Just to point out the obvious - without GPS, you are not going to get an accurate flight log! GPS is how it knows where you went.

    But you're right ! That's weird dude.
    Congrats in A NEW RECORD!! Haha

    Interesting that your total mileage is "only" 9.9 million feet though! Peculiar...

    The "2" wasn't showing. It moved back and forth to fit all the digits in the window.
