I did some more flying the other day, mostly it went very well, failed to record too much, but still. I flew at Caesars Fort, an Iron Age hill fort that is now part of Bracknell Forest and within easy walking distance for me. The last flight was by far the most exciting. The app crashed about 30 seconds after getting in the air. I was flying in a large open space, surrounded with trees. The plane stopped responding and just flew away towards the trees, it made it pretty far before (virtually out of sight) before either stopping or hitting a tree or foliage towards the top of a massive ever green. I didn’t see what happen so started walking towards the edge of the hill fort. The plane has a beeper which sounds when the plane thinks it’s crashed, and initially I wasn’t able to hear it. I climbed down the edge of the fort, imagining that I was going to find that it was stuck way up in a tree. upon reaching the base of the fort I heard the beeper going off and located it on the ground in the dead bracken. Spot the plane in the picture below:

The recordings of the flights were not great as the sun was low and the light poor.
