Hi Chris

Thanks. Here some technical data of the power chain:

Motor and Control: Boost 25 + Regler XC30 (reused components of our
old Bormatec MAJA)
Prop: 9x9
LiPo: 3S 10'600mAh TP ProLite G6 25C

I am operating the 9XTend at 9600 baud. I was expecting better range
than at 115k. The polling mode? I have to check on that. Unfortunately
even using high gain antennas we don't get the expected range. What
range do you get with 115k using what antennas?

We were always under power, no gliding, no use of updrafts. That would
be a very interesting task, some already have done using other
autopilots. Or has someone in Paparazzi?

The X8 is a nice plane. We were considering it as well. For ultimate
performance of a flying wing you should have a look at the race guys,

Cheers, Reto
