    Bob. I have been watching your videos with astonished amazement. You turn difficult tasks into simple steps with ease. I am truly stupified by the excellent results you achieve daily. I am not an RC pilot of any sort, but the hobby has continued to impress me for many years. As an amateur electronics and electical engineer, mechanic, woodworker, fabricator, and Amateur Radio operator I find your work inspiring. I will continue to watch. I have two questions though. 1) Why’d you stop working on the B1, and 2) what are the GPS receivers used for on the F18?

    Thank you for sharing your experiences!

    Humble regards,
    Jeff

    When Bob said satellite receivers, I believe he is referring to auxiliary receiver/antennas for the on-board RC receiver. This improves the signal capability of the model to better guard against loss of signal/signal drop-out during flight.

    On the B1, Butch go pulled away (from making wing parts) to work his own business. Bob then took on some paying projects to rustle up some $$$ for extra B1 goodies. He will probably be back on the B in the next coupe of months.

    I am curious if more advanced models have GPS and a homing or perhaps a “spiral decending return” capability should receiving signals be lost? I am thinking that if the receiver stops getting input from the ground, the jet could fly to a predetermined Lat/Long and return to the ground through a series decending circles. With altimiter capabilities it could shut down the turbine just above ground as well.
