I've experienced five sudden-loss-of-power crashes with three different Phantom 4s - over a three year period. If it has happened once with a particular drone, it's probably more likely to happen again.

It's unnerving, I know. If it wasn't for Care Refresh (or the warranty) repairing or replacing the drone each time, I wouldn't still be flying the P4.

Update : DJI Repair reports that the 3:1 board is defective and needs replacing.

I told them the issue. this might be SOP with inflight power off.

I just had this issue with my P4P V2. It was a 120ft up doing a mapping when it the props just shut off. I was able to get them spinning again but it couldn't recover from the speed of the fall and smashed to the pavement. Waiting to here what DJI warranty has to say.

Bugger ,, a successful mid air restart would have been a awsome save
