    I flew it out of the box and it flew great. Last night with the help of some of you guys along with youtube videos I did all necessary upgrades. According to the SD card each was a success and when I opened the DJI app it showed everything as updated. Went to go fly today and took off about 4 feet and the props just stopped and it dropped to the ground breaking off the camera. Already have a new one coming but what do you think happened. Telemetry was all good.

    CSC was also my first thought when I read his post earlier today. I've been anxious to see his flight data. He would have had to do the CSC almost immediately after lifting off for it to stop the props at only 4 feet in altitude.

    Yes this is the very first reaction of many when they see it might hit the roof or a tree up, pull the sticks totally down.
