I’ve been doing a bit of flying with my Mavic Mini and took it with me to Wales when I went visiting a mate this weekend. I’ve not mucked about with the Quickshot modes and so thought I’d try the Helix mode.
Sent her up, enabled the Helix quickshot mode and off she went and then to my dismay through the app screen I saw her go into a bunch of trees and then was ejected out of the side and down into the ground.
End result was a broken gimbal and possibly camera.
I’ve got Coverdrone insurance but have a few concerns. I noticed that in the flightlog at one point it said the wind was strong but it absolutely wasn’t. There was no wind at all. The entire cause of the accident was the drone careering into the trees, which was obviously my mistake.
Any thoughts? Here’s the video and Airdata info
Not sure how I feel about the jolly music DJI Fly app has added to it! It’s kind of rubbing salt into the wound.
