Went flying last weekend… medium wind… 10-12 mph, rose straight up out of a clearing… got to altitude, took my eyes off the drone to check my camera feed… suddenly, the feed was tumbling, my screen was flashing magnetic field warnings and the drone was dropping. It dropped down into a ravine, thus the negative altitude at the end.
Recovered the drone minus 1 propeller, camera loose but still attached (ribbon cable ripped out), 1 set of landing gear tweaked (bent inward, seems to be pulling out of body a bit)
Only minimal power lines nearby, VERY rural setting. I see from the log that the drone was loosing altitude very rapidly before the first warning. I was not bringing it down manually. I don’t think I could drop 120ft in 4 seconds anyway, right?
Any thoughts on why it crashed?
