    Hello everybody. I have owned P3 standart. Most time flied over forest, couple of times RTH function worked correctly. But one time as usually flied over forest, lost signal, P3 was returning to home, but suddenly, it turned around and flewed to opposite side not to home point. So it was lost. That happened week ago. Day ago It was found by people, who went to forest for mushrooms. They returned it to me. Coz was rainy days it was wet, and broken camera. Dried it, seems it`s alive!
    I do not understand why it flewed away, not home...
    Here is flight log link on google drive. Any ideas?

    FLY039.DAT

    sorry for my bad english.. :)

    Welcome to the forum!
    Glad you found it, what a crappy feeling.

    You need to post you flight log, and share the link like this.
    Phantom Log Viewer - PhantomHelp.com

    As I understand, it needs the compass to be correct and GPS lock of coarse. Also some have figured out that RTH was activated, and the operator had accidentally canceled it. This log came from my mobile, I uploaded a text file.
