Was this a clone of the 1340/20? The same thing happened in the final flight of mine.
Pointed it into the wind -admittedly it was a pretty stiff breeze out on the beach at Neskowin - and as soon as it left the rod it cruised off with the wind. Wonder if it has anything to do with the size of the payload section? Pretty large, light weight area ...
