    Recently had a P3 Advanced and yesterday happily flying and then before I knew it the thing just crashed to the ground !!!

    Checked the logs and I saw the following:

    7273 [Ctrl<2>] REQ_RC_COMMAND ENGINE_START ctrl_engine_start
    7274 [IOC.CL ] 92.9 Degree

    9701 CTRL reset all by assisted takeoff finish
    9702 [Ctrl<1>] REQ_RC_NORMAL ATTI_HOLD ctrl_gps_atti

    it is the 3 lines in red that concern me ....

    Anyone else experienced the motors just shutting off ???

    I know for a fact I didnt do anything on the RC .. and I suspect if I did it would be prefixed with RC_COMMAND ... so it looks like the unit itself just shutdown ??

    Not having much luck with DJI support at this stage .

    My standard just dropped from 30 meters on RTH mode. I found only three props on so I assume one motor just shut down and flipped the prop. Sending it Back for warranty. If you can't trust the thing flying in auto we have a problem

    That's possible. It's also possible that the prop was damaged. If the hub is cracked and/or the hub threads are stripped, the prop will spin off when the Phantom brakes.
