@sihinch - I brought the Quad out this morning and able to find your wing.  Unfortunately I am unable to walk up there to pick up your wing.  (leg injury earlier)  Sorry.  Hopefully the video will able to help you.

Thanks to Oscar’s kindness, generosity and skill I was able to locate my wing in about 10 minutes this morning.

You’re a Gem, Oscar. Thank you.

Oscar,

Interesting.  I watched the quad video first and located reference points where you found Simon's wing.  It was so obvious to see.
I then watched the earlier FPV flying videos and could not see it in any of the videos when the plane got to the approximate location. 
The quad videos were so much clearer.

Nice use of your R/C assets and abilities... and thanks for not giving up. 8)

Yeah, I did the same too.  I did flew pass it.  The advantage using the quad (grass eater) is the ability to hover. The technology has changed so much and the price has truly come down.  In the past, with analog video feed, there is so many static and its not possible to do that. 

The one I am using is DJI FPV.  720p HD live feed back to the goggles.
