    And after searching for about 2 hours I found it. Here is the flight log. Looks like battery took a ****. And I know I am going to get a lot of crap about using non dji battery's. OK I was warned.

    Looks like the camera is OK. Will need a new shell.

    Most likely, if it just fell and crashed on its own. Based on the log, if fell from 200 feet around 3mins. The crash could also be caused by one of your many mods, which could have damaged internals.

    It appears cell #2 is damaged in that battery. Was the DJI GO app showing you the voltage was low? I guess you were too far to make it back by the time the issue started occurring though.

    Maybe yes, maybe no.
    Is the bird working? Are you able to download internal DAT log from it?
    The answer could be in it.

    Maybe the cell deviation became too great and it shut down ?

    I was referring to watching the voltage in DJI GO. Your log shows it was dropping like a rock.

    I wouldn't say so. Battery went 14 % down in little bit more than 3 minutes. That's normal.
    But of course, 0.2 V deviation is not normal.

    Bit off topic but....

    on P3 you should be getting 10 or more.

    check sat predictor website for your location and see how many it says.
    try changing location, if that does not work then i guess its faulty.

    No, but it depends on the interpretation by some.
