    First flight without gps and first crash, the fact is that the site was very difficult to fly ...

    Interested to know how many flight experience do you have prior to flying that flight?

    Gps or not looks like it would have ended with the same ending.

    Eyepatch that's exactly where they get the term "pilot Error" I cann see where in the canyon you could lose some of the GPS satellites and drop below the needed 6 and cause you to drift with the air current in atti mode but your video indicated a bad control manouver.... Right!
    Like the video just the same.

    Yeah it's a difficult flight with no GPS - and so IOC is no good, right? So you're in phantom mode and rotating around, changing your perspective in the narrow canyon. It's easy to make a mistake.
