    That person likes to bust up quads. Replacements will keep DJI in business.......

    you cant blame rotor wash on DJI....that's the nature of copters in general. You disturb the air so it changes its characteristics to fly through it then. Battery failure....It happens. That's like saying "My cars engine oil should last for the life of the car". Its a consumable and they will go bad. Sucks it happened in mid air though. The fly away....i chalk that up to DJI .....KINDA. I haven't had it happen to me but will a fly away happen in NON GPS mode? if the answer is "No" then to me that's a risk we all assume for the convenience of using that feature.

    Plenty of that already. Might be an indicator ;) .

    By the way... the 'crap' is free!

    Move along if you're not a buyer. :lol:
