Howdy all. I bought a second hand Spark a few months ago and it’s been loads of fun. Recently I had a problem with the remote, so didn’t use it for a while. I planned on getting around to fixing it eventually.
The other day I decided to take it out to try some of the Quickshot features at my mates place using just my phone for control. I fly there as its my old neighbourhood near an open area and we know all the neighbours (we all grew up together and they’re used to us trying new toys out).
I successfully did the ‘Rocket’ shot, then tried to do the ‘Dronie’. On the way back from the Dronie, instead of landing after returning to the home coordinates, the Spark decided to fly off and is now pretty lost.
I uploaded the log data here: https://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/4M381GBTZYXY05WKLVKC/
I’ve learned from the logs that the Spark switched to ATTI mode right when it flew off, but I still had 19 satellites on my GPS. Was it a combination of a low battery and returning home from a Quickshot?
I guess I’m just looking for some closure really as I don’t think I’ll ever get it back. What went wrong? I’d love to buy another one, but the thought that I could lose it again is a real put off. What happened on my flight?
