Technicall question regarding the X5C and flight time when out of transmitter range

Hi,

I lost my new X5C during a freak dust devil storm. It lofted my quadcopter so high I could not see in nor have control of it.

My question is if the copter is out of range of the transmitter and it was on full thottle before flying out of range would it continue the fly at full throttle until the battery dies or will the motor stop when the tranmitter is out of range of the copter. If it is the former, i will have to greatly expand my search area.

 

Thanks,

Tubac

The quad would stop when it loses signal so the search should be easier

Tubac,

  Another welcome to the forum and we hope your time here is well-spent.

As Red5 said, the X5C will disconnect from the radio and land where it lost 

communication from your Rx. 

  Please do not get discouraged over a lost helicopter. This seems to be the year

for it. Good news is that if you find it, it will probably still work. One of the guys on here

found his after a hurricane blew it out of a tree, and mine spent 4 months hanging 

upside down in a tree also. Everyone on here that was able to recover a lost heli

has reported back that they still work! Syma quality!

   Dust devils are new to us, can you explain what happened?

Please post often, and again, welcome to the forum and good luck!

Hi Jamdj,

Thanks for the encouradement!

Dust devils are like mini tornadoes that seem to appear spontaneouly and are quite common around here. Usually the sky is clear and there is no warning when they appear. I live in the Sonoran desert about 15 minutes by car from Mexico. The terrain here is rocky and strewn with every kind of prickly plant and stinging nettle as well as cacti, rattlesnake and scorpion, not to mention biting ant populations aplenty. My wife and i have already done three sweeps of the area and might do a fourth. Is there a device that is not too pricey that works where i might attach to my next quad so it might be easier to retrieve if it gets lost?

Thanks,

Tubac
