    P2V+ very strange and dangerous problem

    Hello fellow Phantom Pilots. I bought a used P2V+ that I was assured worked completely fine on a test flight before the seller put up the offer. However, no matter the flight mode I try, immediately after takeoff it will just shoot off backwards at a slight angle with a high speed. On the first...

    Flight no longer steady, flyaway/crash close call

    Hey Everyone, I have a DJI Phantom Vision 2+ That doesn't have that many hours on it. I can probably say it has only been on around 12 flights in its lifetime. With that said, the recent flights have become very unpredictable, with it not being able to hover steady, nor is it easy to land...

    Anyone near Hollywood want a free drone?

    I lost my Phantom 3 on holiday a few weeks ago and I'm in New Zealand so can't go get it. I have the co-ordinates / map of where it landed from the log files, just need someone to go get it. It's located near Camp Hollywoodland so you may need to jump a fence to get access to the area. PM me...

    Phantom More Reliable Than Mavic?

    I've been over on Mavic Pilots since the beginning and on here since shortly after the Mavic started shipping.. Is it just my imagination or does it seem like there are a lot more Mavics flying away than there are Phantoms? Any ideas why? Or maybe you disagree?

    Military Drone Flyaway

    Yes, I guess it can happen. Still, it must be a nightmare of you being in charge of a 1.5 million dollar drone and having it just take off on you. Worse yet, how can you trace where it is going to? Being not too far from the Mexico border perhaps part of my concern would be if the drone flies...

    Word of advice. Mark ur phantom with your phone number! By a GPS tracking device to mount to It!

    I am not new to RC's. Not once did I have a fly away with a helicopter, or a plane, in over 20 years. Then again, I wasn't relying on firmware or software. The quadcopter is so easy. ..a caveman can do it. But trust me, when your phamtom flys away, and your $1400.00 investment is gone with no...

    P4 climbing beyond max and landing hard

    I was flying my P4 along a river and climbing slowly, I then decided to climb a bit quicker to get a more expansive shot and heard the motors go to max. P4 was about 240 metres along the river at this time. I released all sticks and watched as the altitude kept rising rapidly. DJI Go app...

    Lost my P3A and I'm devastated.

    Quick back story. I had owned the P3A for about 2 weeks prior to taking it with me on vacation to the White Mountains in NH. I had flown my P3S on several Litchi missions before this and purchased the A as an upgrade for the trip. I upgraded the firmware on the AC, Controller as well as all 3...

    Flyaway in "Follow me" mode

    I have a rather new P3A and was trying out the follow me mode, when the drone took off flying backwards. I hit the RTH button and it stopped and came back but I don't know what might have caused that. I was having difficulty reading the screen on my droid phone because of glare but I kept...

My coworker swears he was only going up...
