I just wish I had known about Brownout before I lost a scratch built giant Ugly Stik. When a flyer at the site said the failure looked like brownout, I had no idea what he was talking about. With the old 72mhz equipment brownout didn't exist, there was no microprocessor in the receiver to reboot when the voltage got low. The response on the controls slowed down, when that happened you landed. When I researched brownout I discovered I had done every single thing you could to bring on a brownout. Live and learn.

By lost I meant as I started the first turn to land for the third flight of the day, a gentle right turn turned into a slow roll into the ground. Up to that point the plane behave perfectly and showed no indication of any problem. I have since learned there are a number of devices to solve the problem.
