P.s.. Now that I think a bit I believe it had something to do with the rotation of the blades and the carbon creating a static field. Again....grain of salt. Just trying to help solve a problem.

Netwarrior wrote:I had a flyaway with a Futaba T8J. All was going smooth and then as I was about 80 feet descending, My Phantom tilted 45 degrees and full throttled away from me and towards some tall trees. Sticks were non-responsive at all. I flipped into manual mode and regained stick control. It then circled away from the trees and crashed at a 45 degree angle about 90 feet away from me. Wasted an ESC and one of the red arms. Zenmuse, video TX and Garmin GTU all were knocked off the Velcro mounts on my Phantom. Fortunately it was grass and all of those appear ok. My new ESC and Phantom body arrived today. I've done hundreds of flights in 3.16 without issue until then. Hope it was just a fluke.
