So there I am. Finally out in the Desert flying in the wide open sky. I flew 4 or 5 times that day. Had some friends show up at camp. So I fired up the Phantom and took to the skies again. Everybody was really impressed with the ability of the Phantom. It was pitch dark and the lights looked great. Way easier to fly when you can really see the lights good. The Phantom had been in the air for maybe 4 or 5 minutes. Hovering almost directly above our crowd, the Phantom stopped responding to control input. It was hovering nice and solid but would not move. I was maybe 100 feet up. I gave it about 1 minute then shut off the control. The phantom came right back to where it took off from. Fun part was after I turned off the control I handed it to a friend. (A great grandmother in her 70s I think) I asked her to land it for me. She thought she did. It was priceless. Glad I brought extra underwear though.
