So I was out on the beach today withy 2 boys and the drone, a little windy but not too bad (around 9-10 knots) the drone was flying happily until i received an error message stating that there was magnetic field interference, the drone then went into ATTI mode and began to drift quite quickly on the wind and the only control I could use was to lower the aircraft until it hit the sand, I could not stop the roters from spinning once on the ground and it was trying to lift again it eventually flipping roters down snapping 2 of them.
I have been warned about drone fly away and have been advised to use an app called magnetoligy which I did and got the following pre flight reading
I also checked on UAV Forecast and there was no warnings on there.
It looks as though I have been quite lucky as I was only at 30 ish mtrs to begin with and almost directly above my head. And the only damage I have found so far is to the rotors and sand ingress that I will clean a before I take it anywhere.
So I gues all I am asking is did I miss something?
have i done something wrong?
Could I have done anything different other than ditch it into a sand dune?
Many thanks in advance.
