Yes. While the drone is warming up, it locks it's takeoff location via GPS. There are three ways it will return to it's takeoff location: 1) if it loses signal with the controller for more than 3 seconds, 2) you press the "Return to Home" button on the controller, and 3) a low battery condition. The drone continually calculates the amount of battery needed to return to the start location and once that amount is left, it will return to home. It will land itself in the "Return to Home" mode or, once you see it returning, you can cancel the RTH mode and land it yourself if desired. In RTH mode, it moves up or down to 100ft altitude (AGL) and takes the most direct course home.

Per your request :lol:

Just picked this bad boy up last night - been looking for a bit and decided on Covette Stingray. Target was a 68-70, 72 at latest since that's when chrome bumper was changed. Decided 75 would work too since we'd both be 40 this year!

Found this guy had listed on eBay with his phone #. I called him up and asked him what his reserve was - $13k. Well below what I was looking at on earlier models. He didn't really want to end the auction and I didn't want to take a chance so I offered him $13.5k and he agreed. He lives about two hours from me so grabbed wife and a stack of cash and headed his way.

Guy was total gear head - 60 years old and been doing cars since he was a kid. He had a car lift in his home garage... Really nice guy and we talked for at least 30 mins before even getting to the car then talked for another hour after test driving it.

It's got a little less horsepower then the BMW at 420 vs 440hp and I am kind of spoiled by new German engineering. But it is great driving car and tons of sex appeal! And the motor sounds amazing. Straight pipes - no muffler just baffles.

For the gear heads here - this is what is under the hood: (all Charlie Brown teacher talk to newb like me)
This was an original L- 82 4 speed car. It now has a 355" small block 10.25 comp., Pro-Action alum heads, Comp-Cams hyd. cam,.510 lift 230 @.050, Edelbrock intake and 750 Holley carb. Complete MSD ign. with 6AL box. Hooker ceramic coated 1 7/8 headers and custom made chambered exhaust to the rear bumper. It really sounds good, not too loud, just right. Complete Classic Chevy's 5 speed conversion, bellhousing, flywheel, Centerforce clutch, Tremec TKO 600 5 speed trans and shifter that looks like the original 4 speed shifter Custom driveshaft, 3.55 limited slip axle. Front susp. completely rebuilt and new quick ratio steering box installed. New rear transverse spring and bushings. New tires and wheels, drilled and slotted EBC rotors, Hawk brake pads, and rebuilt calipers. New master cyl.

Big thanks to the BS members who had classic car experience and guided me through the process :thumbup:

COngrats on the new car!!! I think this car will serve you VERY well and it came in at half the price of the other one you was looking at. Whoever built the car put a lot of good parts into it.

I had to wait for the right one. Was tempted by a few others but for the money this was the best one. As smackvay pointed out to me basically I paid for the engine and got the body for free!

If I keep in current shape it should hold its value or increase.

She's a fun ride! Glad I listened to others on the forum and waited for the right one at the right price!

First gear is ripper, I need to get better with timing on stick/gas pedal to really make her purr

Straight pipes, no muffler too!

Bimmer is M Sport 750 LI - world of difference when I switch cars :lol:

66 or 67 nova? I always wanted a 62 but from the time they first came out it was a great platform to hot rod! So anytime one came up they were costly.
