Hello, I crashed my DJI Mavic Pro this evening in a dense bush/jungle area after it hit a tree presumably. I wasn’t aware of the Find My Drone feature so I went looking for it by following the flight path on my iPhone but since it was getting very dark, I didn’t have any luck. I plan on going there again in the morning and after seeing some posts, already uploaded the flight record of the crashed flight. Could someone please help me understand what I should be doing and looking for when I am at the crashed site?

I have the last recorded GPS coordinates and plan on following them but what if the drone is stuck on a tree or something? The trees in that area are very high! I tried flying the drone again after it crashed but received messages of “Gimbal Overload” and “drone rolled over”.
An additional problem that is somewhat unrelated to the search is that there is very likely going to be water issues with the drone in the morning due to the moist atmosphere and dew. Would you happen to know if Mavic has some level of waterproof protection? Would the rice bag trick work for the drone like it does for the cameras?
Thanks so much for your help and guidance!
