Finding That missing battery

Club member John was out at the field flying his electric wing when pop went the battery . Not pop as in explode but as in dislodged its self from the wing. We searched the long grass but to no avail. The Flightpower battery was well and truly lost. This brought back memories of the time Harry Reid and myself had a mid air over a field at Eskragh Lough. Poor Harry also lost his battery, sorry Harry!  Anyway good old John never gave up and returned last night with a friend and a metal detector, though and behold after 10minutes the battery pack was back in the wing and John resumed his flight even though it was 2 days later. While searching John recovered 6 glow plug! some engine parts! a few pits of exhausts! nuts! bolts! and  push rod connectors. Our field has some hidden treasures , I wonder who all the bits belong too !

Moral of the story is attach your battery properly or befriend some one with a metal detector !
