    Yesterday I was doing a follow me thru the city at 120 meter height, but suddenly I have got disoriented and did not know where was my Phantom 3 Professional...

    Until I ran out of battery and the drone "insisted to land" at the last set Home Point... What surprised me was that it was more than 100 meters ahead of me... And I was looking behind me...

    I tried my best to control the landing but it was beyond my expertise...

    When I found the Phantom, it was upside down and it looked like it "tried" land in that position until it ran out of battery...

    The propellers were totally damaged and the shell was twisted...

    Finally I disassembled it and place it on its position...

    One of the motors position is inclined, but I was able to fly again...

    I was lucky!

    Here is the route.

    It traveled 6,296 meters. Almost 4 miles...

    ****, looked like it was landing good and then it flipped! is it a road it landed on?

    i had a crash yesterday too. just hit a tree 3 meter up, the phantom tried to keep stable but ended up in some bushes. i was just hovering though so there wasn't much speed. just some stains and the props feel a bit weaker, so i was lucky.
