After reveiwing the vid, I think it was signal loss invoked RTL. My failsafes in TX are all set to servo hold so it continues last commands even throttle. Which would explain the continus yawing. I was turning around knowing I was loosing video the trees/school must have been blocking signal. I launched out in front of the school across the street in the sunkin gardens. IF you watch close each spell of yawing and count. signal picks up it yaws the other way and count. Not untill the last yawing can you count over 5 secs then it RTL. Why so far off target? I dunno.

I am happy to report, The Ranger is now ready for some fpv testing!

There is still a couple issues for Jim to work out on the Ruby, but they deal with aided mode.
As far as I can see auto mode works perfectly, as well as loiter, return to home and return to land!

In aided mode, the aileron control seems to me to overshoot, causing forward flight viewed from the video to resemble a fish swimming. If I feed input into it, it settles down into a straight flight.
The other issue is the throttle pulse seems excessive to me. It's either on or off. In auto mode, to settles down to a gentle pulse.

Altitude hold is perfect!

Battery display is now set for my battery, though I did notice that at the end of my first flight, ( the second is posted ), the mah display said I had 1.2k mah left. I put back 3308 back into the battery.
I asked Jim if it's possible to tighten this up. If not, no big deal. I've very happy knowing that if I see the battery alarm I still have a reserve.

Now comes the flight time.
First flight, 3308mah consumed in 16.37 minutes from a 5300mah battery!!!
A flight on the stock motor was only 12.5 minutes.
As I already know that the plane can easily lift 2 of these battery's, even at SouthPark, it looks like my long range plan is working out nicely!
