Today I learnt a lesson to always carry spare underwear

Ok, so the truth is, I got excited when I saw some kayakers, lost VLOS for just a minute and this happened.

Lost signal on DJI fly because of the interference so was convinced it had crashed, then it came back in and somehow I managed a second pass without crashing and I can honestly say, no matter how cool the kayakers are I will never lose VLOS again!!

Did the obstacle avoidance stop it from hitting the cables?
It seemed to follow the same path back, was that the return to home?

Mini 2 so only the bottom sensors. Luck and panic avoided the rest.

The RTH didn’t cut in immediately which was annoying when I got signal back I started moving it and then it kicked in and raised straight up

I did before hand abs the priory was ok to fly, it’s the kayakers fault really :joy:

I’m genuinely curious if it would cause this, my guess is more likely that my drone will just spin out of control on collision and crash and the cables would be unscathed

I had a glider hang up on a power line…nothing happened…I rather expect the UAV would hang there for evermore if you were unlucky.

That was my thought, doubt I’d be ballsy enough to call Southern Electric to ask them to retrieve :sweat_smile:
