    Last night after flying 3 Litchi Mission, I landed my toy and shut it down. I turned to talk to a friend and they said "There it goes." My marvelous toy that I had only showed great love and appreciation for had launched itself and was trying to find a new home. After a quick recapture I got it back on the ground and turned off the battery. It will now suffer a time out until it decides to behave better!

    Did you move away from the original home point after taking off?

    Yes a few feet to keep the toy in view as it was a 14 waypoint mission.

    I do love the P3S, but it is definitely the most ungrateful little brat of all the phantoms I own

    Wow, thats weird, I didn't think that was even possible. I guess I've never tried to start a mission from the ground with Litchi before, I've always been airborne.

    I always start the missions at 15 ft altitude and end them near waypoint 1 at the same 15ft.
