Had a great night at the field this evening. It was a beautiful NH evening. An instructor had a sutdent on a buddy box and after several radical moves, the battery parted company with the Pete N'Poke. The model was trimmed to climb slightly and was able to circle the field of indpendent control about 3 times. Eventually, the model traveled down wind until everyone lost sight of it. In retrospect, we probably should have gone after it but, the owner saw no point in trying to follow it. As it was very clear, we estimated that it was over 3 miles away before we lost sight of it.
Aside from the pre-flight, cable and battery restraint checks, any suggestions as to what to do when you experience a fly-away?
