I purchased the Liveview for my Iris+ on Friday, installed it today. Took it to the park to check it out and try it for the very first time. I've been flying my Iris+ for several months now, so I am a decent pilot.
It was flying a little oversensitive but I was able to maintain control. I took it for the first flight for around 5 minutes, landed it, changed the battery and flew again.
The second flight is when it decided to either lose power or lose connection with my controller. After about 3 minutes, the motors were spinning but it was dropping steadily, twitching as it fell. As I'm holding the throttle up as hard as I can hoping it's going to pull out of it at the last second, it landed hard on some rocks.
The GoPro Hero Black - Absolutely destroyed.
My Tarot 2D gimbal, messed up.
New Clover antenna, broken
Propellors - all chipped up
And to put salt in the wound, the 32GB Micro SD card was ruined, the video is not retrievable, the computer won't recognize the card. I can't even get a cool "drone crash" clip out of it!
I've attached photos of the damage, and the log from the "successful" flight just prior (of course the disastrous flight wouldn't have uploaded a log!)
I'm hoping you can find what's wrong from this 1 log, and offer up some kind of explanation.
I've just watched a $2,000 investment literally fall from the sky and shatter on the rocks.
I've been filming with GoPro for years now, and not only is my brand new drone in pieces, but my GoPro Hero Black is absolutely destroyed. So even if I walk away from the Drone scene, I have no GoPro to film my Mountain Biking and WakeSurf videos. I'm disgusted at this loss tonight.
I might just have to walk away from piloting and aerial photography after this. I'm devastated.
I sent this in tonight to help@3drobotics. I really doubt I'll receive any help from them. Any suggestions?
EDIT: I've located the ACTUAL log of the crash, and it is attached here. Thanks for your help!
