I have lost 2 drones in a little over 2 months and am looking for some advice to maybe find whats left
Similar circumstances: 1st was a mavic pro with about 250 flights logged when it just lost communication with controller
It was 3500 feet away at 320 feet high with 70% battery left
It was a wooded area but I had coordinates of last position
Looked several hours and have returned several times with no luck
I bought another Platinum but did not even unpack the new controller- just used the other with the Ipad attached
Used it for 25+ flights when same thing happened- sudden loss of communication
Drone was RTH 2500 feet away at 360 feet up over a cotton field
Not quite in sight but I was looking at screen when it lost
Again good location but after hours walking in waist high cotton- no drone
Obviously I suspect controller is just shutting down drone and will never use this controller again
Any ideas on what happens?
Does drone go straight down? Would it veer left or right? Could it continue flying till battery ran out?
Appreciate your thoughts
