    Hi,
    So I took my bird out for a quick flight earlier first time in about 2 weeks,
    Got all prepped and ready to go,
    Took a while to get gps lock,
    All calibrated and gps good to go,
    I take off about 2 ft from the ground and it instantly looses gps not safe to fly,
    Then it flew forward quite fast and smashed into the wall,
    No damage done except the props needed changing,
    Then I got it up to about 300ft,
    Then it started to sway from left to right and the camera was extremely angled to one side then the other,
    Errors saying strong interference detected,
    Which I've never had before,
    Then safe to fly non gps, when i had 5 satellites,
    Controller signal is really poor also, it's just terrible,
    It just isn't right at all, something is sadly wrong here, it's all messed up,
    Can anybody please advise me, as I'm quite worried now,
    Thanks

    The same thing happened to me today. Destroyed the gimbal and ripped out the video wifi wires.

    Squirrel, I totally forgot about that
    It slipped my mind whilst trying to look for similar problems
    I have no experience with extracting flight logs etc..
    I think I visited the health drones site once before out of curiosity,
    And I believe you have to pay for this ?

    No, HD is free for so many flights. After that, flights begin to be deleted. Or you can then pay a small monthly fee to preserve the info. Sign up, it's free.

    Thanks again for that info
    So if I manage to grab the record from the drone, you can help me decipher it

    I have taken screenshots of the flight where it crashed on take off and I have included some of the flight after the crash which shows nothing but errors, I hop I have done it correctly.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Cool! You found Healthy Drones! Now, post the link itself to this flight.

    Initially, it just looks like alot of interference being over that subdivision. What with you being on the latest FW version, and having all these connection issues, I would have to suggest downgrading the FW if you can. For that, start searching the forum.

    As Squirrel said post the link, look for option to share this flight near the garbage can.
