Sorry, maybe should’ve tacked this onto my last thread but I just had a really bad experience.
Having suffered a connection loss on my last flight, I flew again tonight and yes, it happened again, downlink loss 4 times!
First I went up to 120m and quite a distance away, lost connection, panicked a bit because I was over trees and it said auto landing - nooooo! Then I realised it had activated RTH on connection loss and was already directly above me, so auto landing was fine.
The home point was quite a way from where is should’ve been so I cancelled auto landing and flew around to the house to inspect the gutters!
All good, down into the back garden and hovered about 3’. Don’t know why the log says minus 2.
Lost downlink again, no panic, it’s only 3’ off the grass. Suddenly it shot up to RTH! I swear it flew BETWEEN the 3 440V overhead wires and went to the home point, which was luckily over a patch of short grass and landed safely.
Here’s the log. Not sure how to make it show up, can you help, Dave? DJIFlightRecord_2019-10-04_[18-33-08].txt (1.8 MB)
Lots of irelevant warnings, the wind was fine, the braking was because I was flying near the roof. The terrible worry is with 4 loss of connection in one flight, that I’ve now got a dodgy drone that I can’t trust. Is it grounds to send it back to Drones Direct, even though I’ve accepted it?
