    Sorry to hear that. The winds can be your worst enemy, especially at altitude. Did it even attempt an RTH?

    So did Tony join you or is he still fighting his IMU issues?

    **** bro, that sucks. I live in Boca but my parents are in St. Pete....thinking of taking my P3P to the bridge when I visit them one of these days, but I'll have to make sure the winds are cooperating.

    I've had three phantoms starting with the standard lost it .I've averaged one a month. Just got my second p3p two weeks ago after sent my first p3p back to amazon because of bad motor .the new one i just got the first time i flew it i pushed the rth button and the button it self pushed into the controller it still works but dji products is not giving me great confidence in there products, but this one does fly great had no problems with the phantom professional other then the rth button on the controller
