Mavic Mini 2nd Flight, Lost control mid flight. Why?

https://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/I0E3FTMPDB8TEI7GZ8V7/

I was just wondering why I lost total control of my drone for like 30 seconds and almost watched it nose dive straight into the ground. I was flying at a friends house, it was a little windy but nothing crazy 5-7mph?. I went up to about 300 feet to get a nice picture or the surrounding when all the sudden it just took a nose dive. Did I do something wrong? This is my first ever drone.

Thanks for any advice.

This appears to be a motor issue. At ~646 seconds you recieved a “Motor Blocked” message. We would need the device .dat file to determine which one. Also, for the sake of making thye statement you also had high wind warnings and you mentioned taking pictures. You did not have an SD card in the aircraft.

I’ve look to see if I could find that file but I’m not seeing it.
I thought you could take pictures with no SD card it just saved to your phone.
Any tips on how I can get the file you’re looking for?

Not the best quality but this is a clip of what happened.

I dont use Apple…but the video events usually do not help anyway, unless it were a bird strike…
