    Hi guys, new to the forum but have had my vision since early December. Was flying on Tuesday afternoon and had no issues. After coming back to land I did a quick lap of our pond. On the return the Phantom looked like it lost power to a rotor, did what looked like a backflip and landed in about 1.5m (approx 3ft) of water. I had not had any other issues during that flight, had approx 40% battery left and 8 gps satellites. As I said I had not had any other issues. I had been flying up to 200m (650ft) with out dramas. The company I purchased it from is sending it to the distributor for evaluation, but I'm not confident that I will get any thing back via warranty.
    Has any one else had an issue similar to this? If so do you know what the problem was

    Cheers
