    I've always thought the 30% battery warning was a bit much. So I usually go to 20% as long as I'm not too far away. This time I pushed the limit a bit too far. It (a P2V) was starting to do the self-landing thing and I fought it. It let me control the direction but not the altitude. So it's heading for the ground and I'm trying to get it back to ME - to land. Well, as you can see, that didn't work. Lesson learned the hard way, and I really lucked out.

    Now I make sure I push no farther than 20%. These toys cost too much! :cry:
