yeah thats what it looks like from that flashing red light definitely not a bad connection otherwise it would fall from the sky. . I wonder if it was a defective battery which suddenly drained from 100% to 15% or the pilot was not paying attention
Hey, just saw your ' drone save ',
You did well to cover a lot of ground to save it from the water.
Just wondering, what was the issue?
I've been flying Phantoms for over a year and I'm on my way home or landing somewhere when my battery status gets to 20%.
DJI (and some other pilots) swear you can get 25 minutes flight time from a battery;however, I have never found that to be the case. I'm happy with 20 minutes.....then I land and switch batteries.
Just to be safe.
Here in the North-East, I also have to be careful when flying in cold weather. Below 0 Celsius or 32 degrees F, it's possible for a Phantom to ice up or the props ice up. If they do, your aircraft comes down.
Pilots need to know that the higher you fly(in cold weather) the colder the air is.
So, that's an issue to remember.
Anyway, great video.......glad you were able to save your Phantom.
