    Evening all,

    looking for some help and advice on how and why my advanced crashed today.

    Healthy Drones report is pointing at a compass issue? HealthyDrones.com - Innovative flight data analysis that matters

    After take off and a short climb / forward flight, there was a change in engine pitch, the drone flipped over and dropped straight into the sea. No Warnings on the App, crash happened in the blink of an eye. I have been unable to recover the drone.

    Already ordered a replacement, is there an issue to take up with DJI.

    Prior to the crash it had flown perfectly today several times and within 100ft of the location of the crash.

    Many thanks, Chris

    Had similar loss with my P3P just over a month ago. DJI replaced my bird under warranty. I would contact them and file a claim. Best of luck.
