If i reacted quicker could have avoided the crash. lucky Prop guards took brunt of impact and 10m of ground so lucky nothing mayor only blow to EGO.

will upload flight logs. all updates latest to date including recent remote update.

was practicing for a home shoot to check any wires around house.
did a Manuel fly around. 2nd with points. auto flew 3 times around house but noticed each time it went closer to ground. started at 19m ended a up before crash 11m up infront of jungle gym.
sorry no footage of crash. just before the the crash the drone suddenly dropped 5m meters before hitting dead on the gym...

Now why didn't it hold altitude during waypoint flight? why on every "round" did it go lower?
i always calibrate the compass before flight as standerd pratice. crash height was closer to 6m then 11m stated on healthy drones.
Software or hardware error?
low battery warning only after crash 29% wasn't going fast.
Very low wind speed. never lost/low signal not even behind house.

Any input is appropriated.

Did you set specific altitude for each waypoint? If so, what was your ground clearance?

I read that it could be set.
But during the set of point there was no onscreen prompt or info available to select hight. 22m start
