    I had an issue yesterday with my Phantom 3 standard, while trying out the follow me mode my P3 suddenly took off at Full Throttle into a tree. Luckily there wasn't any damage to it other than some grass stains and a missing dampener for the gimbal. My question is has anyone ever heard of anything like this and if so what's the cause? I was at an altitude of approximately 50 feet and about 32 feet away from me. I am in the country so there's no real interference and after the crash I flew the Phantom again without any issue but I am now afraid to use the follow me mode again. Any help would be appreciated thank you

    It would be impossible to figure out what happened without reviewing your flight log. Please upload your TXT flight log here and post a link back here.

    Click my link above. It explains how to find the TXT flight logs.

    Sounds similar to what happened to OP RGB_lights earlier this week. DJI Forum's BladeStrike is working on that one. I don't think I can post a link to that thread from my app on my iPad.

    I'm more interested in looking at the OP's flight log.
