    Reading compass failure topic I remembered I had a scare with the quad over harrisburg lake i get this warning... U wanna talk about fast flight back turn it to atti mode ans hauled back to dry land... Still havent figured out what went wrong. Although it was really windy that day wondering if the wind affected the sensors. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Yes, it's never happy news to be over a lake while your app advises you that you may have a missing propeller. I suppose it's possible the wind affected the craft causing the warning but I've never heard of it happening before. Glad you made it back!
