Well after three VERY close calls, well two close calls and one crash I decided to send in my 9303 to Horizon to get checked out.
First last Thursday was the almost loss of my new Seagull models Shoestring. She was flying great and making some really cool passes when all of a sudden it turned hard right and dove straight for the trees in the dreaded death spiral. All I could think was there goes a thousand bucks down the drain! I managed to save it and pull out about ten feet off the tree tops and bring her in for a landing. I went long and nosed her over busting the cowl and motor mount but I was not about to try to make another lap not knowing what had happened. No flashing Rx light and I am certain it was not a brownout as I was using a fully charged, and load tested LiFE receiver battery in her.
Second was on Saturday at our Electric fly in where my 'Cuda went nuts on me and flew back behind the flightline towards the spectators. I managed to get it back in the fray, we were doing combat, and figured I just let the wind get it. Not so as right after that she nosed hard over and hit the deck. No indication on Rx of a brownout
Third was my IYF. Still a bit leery of the radio but not completely certain it was the problem I decided to do some night flying as there were very few people there and the only real risk was to my plane. I flew a couple of times without incident and just when I thought maybe it's not the radio down she went. I was unable to check this time as the battery departed the plane. It busted it up pretty good but in true IYF fashion it will fly again.
Three different times on three different planes with three different power setups at different locations around the field. The only common denominator is the transmitter so off it goes.
I sure hope they figure out what is wrong because I have no confidence in it at all right now. It has been a very good and reliable radio up to this point though and really don't want to get a new one.
Will let everyone know what, if anything, they find.
