Flew at my main site today and it was fine out to 5km so I think it must have just been a problem with the other site

  Looks good Sir Dave.....Slippery model on the glide, a good sign.....Yeah, I forgot you had the Vector in it with its built in 12 volt regulated. filtered supply for Camera and VTX...I didn't watch the whole clip.

  Its because Im slumming it it with my cheapo Omnibus F4......lol......There must be a way of feeding a Main Pack 4S to the Omnibus and a separate 12v filtered supply for Camera and VTX...?
  Without the benefit of an amp counter, seeing main pack voltage is crucial.

Are you not using the V2 controller that has a voltage and current sensor?  If so you could solder a 12v bec to the esc side and then the Omnibus would see the camera/vtx drain as well? 

When committing these nice planes to the sky you can't beat the Vector for confidence. I had to use it in anger today.  My goggles beeped once then died, thanks for the warning! I quickly hit rth while I scrabbled around to find a spare battery!  Thankfully when I got the goggles working the plane was happily plodding its way back to me  :D

  Hi Dave,
                 No, I prefer the Omnibus V1 board, its simpler wiring wise and I avoid the possibility of contaminating the FC with motor / esc noise...I know the counter works for you guys but I have become adept at simply watching the main pack voltage instead. It's a pretty good indicator of the remaining capacity and an amp counter is only as good as its calibrated.
  I have since discovered as have others that you can simply cut through the legs of the 5v (linear) reg onboard the F4 and it runs nice and cold. Applying a healthy clean 5v to the servo rail also powers the board and GPS, which surprised me cos I thought they were separate..Anyhoo...it works, and so does RTL and Alt Hold and no doubt Auto launch too...Not bad for an M8N GPS Autopilot costing 33.....lol....I think I may just stick to 3S Main Packs to keep it all simple.
  Sounds like FS have their Goggle battery warning levels incorrect..?

Just a quick little vid of some in flight footage, all flown in manual. I'd claim the plane was very stable but with the conditions I think any plane would have been :)

  Ah, nice job Dave....Still air conditions eh...?...That's twice this year...lol.

 It glides real fast doesn't it..?

I've trimmed it out a bit better now so it slows down more than it did. Tempted to try bigger batteries but that will only increase the glide speed!  :)

That looked like a pretty much perfect day! Solid as a rock in the air, nice!
