    Hey guys

    so it finally happened after a year. I lost my P3P last week. It just went from all good to "aircraft disconnected" and I never heard back from it. went hiking up twice to the last known gps point but no luck. I suspect an electrical issue but am wondering if someone can help analize the log file, I'm a bit lost!

    Brian - I'm no expert but I don't see anything wrong, perhaps others with more experience could have a look. Only thing I could see that that cell 4 on the battery seemed a little below its siblings. From the topo map I can see that it is an area with a lot of mountains/hills. I don't know the elevations around there, is it possible that the aircraft ran into one of them? Just thought I would ask, your elevation is pretty high, I'm assuming because of the terrain. Do you have any video of the final minute or so from your video cache?

    Maybe you hit a tree in those mountains.
