    I was flying out to 3000 feet and even though the drone was in sight initially, I lost sight of it in the bright sky. I watched the telemetry but misjudged the return path.
    I was thinking if I had a real strobe mounted on it I could see it and not lose sight of it like I did today.
    I aimed the camera down which helped some but I was over farmland with no obvious tree lines, buildings etc. I did get it back though. It was a interesting episode which taught me another lesson on flying drones.
    Any thoughts on strobe lights for a drone ? What about other software like on the Phantoms with a tracking screen ?

    3000 ft out? That's maybe just a little beyond "line of sight"
