Yep, I got bit. At my field, if I get drift after launch, it goes somewhere between west and south 95% of the time. 4% of the time it goes between east and south. This time the 1% got me. After making 3 circles, some oddball bit of breeze made it turn to the northeast and go straight for a ways. Then it began to circle again. Unfortunately, it went behind a tree and never came out. I went to look for it and discovered the foliage below the trees was made from 90% thorny plants. Much like roses, but without the pretty flowers. After much fruitless searching I guessed the plane had come down in the parking lot of the building behind the trees and someone walked off with it before I could get up there. No, I didn't have my name and contact info on it. (don't preach) I'm starting another one, but losing this one hurt. It was my best flyer. Dt wouldn't have helped since it would have been set for longer than the flight was. Anyway, link to shaky video below. Sorry about the focus going in and out, but my camera doesn't like open sky as a background.

Bad luck. It's really annoying to lose a good flying model. Good luck with the new one.
