Maybe this is a better place to post this. I would like to close this off in my mind. Basically my Phantom 4 has flown flawlessly for a year. I kept the old firmware since fall of 2016 because of the issues I saw with other people, but my iPAD mini 4 started updating the DJI Go4 application (I had accidentally set the iPAD to auto update). I did one test flight and it flew great. I took the drone to Fiji and flew it out over a bay with no issues for about 5-10 minutes. It disconnected itself about 260M out and about 58M high. There were no obstructions and no wind drafts. I'm guessing it was either a catastrophic failure or something to do with the DJI Go update. Here is the link to the thread and log file. Any insights would be appreciated.

Even though this section seems most logical to post a request for help, it's better to post this in the P4 discussion area. More of the top pilots hang out there.
