Sorry I cant embed media code.
Go home and land in safe mode sometimes need a little attention.
Don't know the this swimmer.. but I guess I would do the same thing. :-)
I'm really despreate and drinking unclean water now...
I got you...
Happy ending with a smile and a good feeling - I did it...
http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/safety no that almost got him in the face which would cost way more
Ouuuh P lease.
Somebody needs to learn to fly their aircraft. Saw this same thing happen this summer to a local UAV reseller. Only difference was he dropped his $5K enhanced DJI multirotor into the middle of the Willamette river. No chance of running/swimming out to catch it. It's now in Davey Jones locker.
Ok, so I'm a little unclear here. Does DJI really lock you out of controlling your quad when it's on a low-batt RTH? Couldn't he have canceled the mode and regained control, or at least regained pitch/roll authority?
I would say he flew his Christmas present without reading the manual.
Great bit of footage! But yeah... lucky bloke!
Telle est la vie - shit happens =)
@Muhammad: Yeah, that's what I thought, which is why I'm scratching my head as to why this guy couldn't maneuver his quad to a more suitable landing spot while it auto-descended. To me, it looks like it entered RTH, but he couldn't (or didn't know how to) cancel it somehow.
