Wow.. looks like I was purposely looking to crash. That log shows quite a bit. Thanks!
If you haven’t already try and read the manual cover to cover at least twice and consider spending a few hours on the simulator. Conduct your early flights in wide open spaces. You will be on top of this in no time.

Once you lost all the satellites it switched to ATTI mode. If you haven't read up on that mode you need to. Also get some height and try it out. In ATTI it won't hold in place. If you give it left or right stick input on the right stick then the drone will travel in that direction until you stop it with the opposite direction. You cannot depend on always having the satellites like happened in your case. It can get away from you real quick. I suspect that is what happened at the end. If it were me I would do an IMU calibration and make sure you calibrate the compass away from any metals.

You should be good to go then. Like others have said get out in the open. You certainly have plenty of space to do that.

Good luck.

No - it didn't switch to ATTI mode until after the collision. That wasn't what caused the crash. See post #11.
