Unfortunately my brand new Phantom 3 advanced had a severe crash on its 3rd flight while performing auto take off. Video What happened I was waiting to get the fully green flight status (with GPS signal) Once I got that status, I initiated auto take off from the DJI Pilot app At first, the Phantom 3 started and gained altitude However, then, before even touching any of the controls the Phantom 3 immediately reversed and dropped to the ground with high speed It crashed hard and flipped over At this point the motors were not running anymore I picked up the Phantom 3 and as soon as I turned it around the motors started going full speed like crazy (I'm trying to hold the drone in my hands right now) While trying to not get cut by the blades I attempted to turn off the drone at the battery, which didn't work at all. I asked a bystander for help to turn off the remote After a few seconds the Phantom 3 finally stopped spinning I force-ejected the battery Flight Record Attached are the flight record files. Interestingly they say a couple of things that just don't make any sense. Max altitude: 113 feet (34 meters) The drone was never higher than what auto take off does, which is supposedly 1.2m Max speed: 104.85mph There was no horizontal speed at all and also the Phantom 3 doesn't fly that fast Max distance: 58 feet (17 meters) The drone was always at the same position (auto take off --> immediate crash), so this doesn't make sense either Summary This is clearly a technical issue. From what I've read online it seems some people also have had experiences where the Phantom 3 went crazy after auto take off. I've contacted DJI Europe for support and will post updates here once I receive them.
