Chris lost his Yak in the high reeds due a servo failure Sunday, 11/9/2014. Darkness ended the hour long search by Boyd Meier, Chris Meredith and Pete De La Cruz.
Les Hatton and Mike Cappo of the Beaumont club arrived Monday morning armed with a DJI Flame Wheel multi-rotor and First Person View (FPV) gear. They found the plane in less that 3 minutes with the video feed from the multi-rotor’s camera. After marking the spot the marched out and collected Chris’ intact plane. Looks like the left aileron servo was part of the problem that caused the crash.
A lunch at Fast Freddy’s with the Les and Mike ended the successful morning.
Thanks to Les Hatton and Mike Capo!
