Hi! I am new to piloting my drone, and am trying to figure out a crash that happened this weekend while hiking. I was able to recover the drone and it seems intact but was pretty lucky as I was pretty high up, and I don’t want this happening again.
This is my 10th or so time flying it, so am wondering if I may have done something or if there would be a way to further prevent this sort of issue. It is a used drone from Andorama (open box but practically new, and I haven’t had any other issues yet).
Essentially, I had it in a quick shot mode and it very suddenly without any warning of altitude or battery (almost 80 percent) dropped down, thankfully, it dropped down close to the trail I was on and not in a completely other neighborhood as I was on a mountain.
This is my flight log: DJI Flight Log Viewer - PhantomHelp.com
As you can see, it dropped down before completing the full circle, I was much higher than any obstacles/the ground.
Thanks for any insight folks can provide!!
