My kids gave me a P1 for my birthday last August and several months later it did a flyaway. I didn't get it back for a week and a half and in the meantime I bought an Iris+.

At 14 sec. its flying on its own and the impossible to understand part is at 2:35. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7OLq2G4G_4
