well today just wasn't my day.
I wanted to video some today of a lake near here that is soon to be refilled after the dam was replaced for the 2nd time. I preflighted my IRIS+ and even flew it around the yard some, it operated flawlessly. so i got ready and went to the lake. I put in my battery, waited for the IRIS+ to give the green light.
i took off, flew around the perimeter of the lake some, and then headed offshore ( no water yet, just the streams ) i get about half way over the lake and suddenly the drone looses total control wobbled around violently, fell and crashed upside down. badly damaged.
What could have caused it to suddenly go out of control.. someone please help..
the flight lasted less than 1 min.. i was in loiter mode. full charged batteries.
i'll post logs on here...
