I hope to get some tracking practice over airfest... I lost link with mine
inside a 1000 meters, with an arrow 7-440 yagi.
Did I see on here that the rocket moving on the pad can cause the
telemetrum to "lock down". I had a real problem arming, and by the time I
got back to the ground station it woulld not pick up on the monitor. The
wind was teettering the pad and my rocket a little... I moved pads and
the problem seemed to have stopped....
Also, when the rocket was landed, there were no RF beeps? any reason why
that would be? I never regained a signal.
