    took the phantom 2 out on the boat yesterday and was filming a friend wakeboarding but i was chasing behind him flying forwards and all of a sudden the phantom stopped flying forward and wouldnt carry on and i think it started drifting to the right aswell? i just took it high and kept it away from the water and then it started working again? really strange this happened twice
    any ideas?
    cheers

    What version of firmware you running?

    Could be your max distant from home point was reached if running v2 or v3. Also if running V3 maybe you reached a restricted airport zone?

    Yeah thats the only thing I can think of is that you hit the max radius limit that you have set in the Phantom Assistant software. Can see no other reason for it to hit a wall in the air and just stop going forward anymore.
