    My Phantom 3 pro hit a tree and crashed. The battery came lose during the crash. It fell at least near a puddle. The Phantom is all right. The battery is blinking and will not stop blinking. I cannot turn it off. It may have gotten a little wet. Any advice?

    Be careful with LiPo, it may cause harm, get hot or catch fire. For the price of your P3 I would just right the battery off and get another one, in case this battery threw a wobbly at 400ft and caused the crash of your bird.

    Was the crash due to pilot error or did you mysteriously lose control?

    It was mostly pilot error. I have found damage on the battery and, as suggested, am writing it off. thanks for the helpful suggestions. - Justin
