    Did my Phantom 4 Pro Suddenly Brick During Flight?

    Hey everyone. I'm new, and I'm screwed. I was flying my work's P4Pro yesterday on Sport Mode, and it suddenly lost all connection.

    Hi there, So I just bought a P3A as my first ever quad. Super excited to get out and fly! However, I am a complete noob and have no flying experience.
