    BRAND NEW FRIGGIN DRONE. I used it for a little over 2 hrs and had piloting down great. I go RTH and it returns but mid flight I decide to go back so I finished, pushed GTH again and it went the opposite direction. Complete flyaway. I tried to recover but no luck. I saw the logs and it flew for like a mile then lost reception. Am I wrong but when in GPS mode and it flyaway shouldn't it return home when it regains satellite signal? I am so depressed. $700 down the drain. It's Friday and they aren't open till Monday. What u think I should do?

    Tough break but it's hard to tell what the issue was without some data.
    You could get the flight record from the app and submit it to HealthyDrones.com (instructions on their site)
    That might help to fill in the blanks and solve the mystery.

    What does DJI do about things like this?

    They will probably ask for the flight logs.

    They might want to see your logs but if history is accurate, they won't replace it. Sorry
