deployment All,

Late update, and a strange one.

Glider reset and ran initial.mi

It then proceeded to swim for 13.5 hours (perhaps not going anywhere or getting to its inner watch circle) and then aborted for no cop tickle.

It never surfaced for no_comms! Should be 20 min in initial.mi

This glider is light so not swimming very well, perhaps it never got to inner watch circle and swam indefinitely trying to get there, but that doesnt explain the no no_comms surfacing.

We decided to drift it overnight to deliberate a bit and get your guys opinions on whether you wanted to try flying again. I modded the initial and lastgasp missions for 2 hour overtime and 4 hour no cop tickle. On second thought the overtime might be overkill.

Drifting on 30 min callbacks and we can decide in the morning what to do.

Thanks all, strange events...
