    I have a feeling I'm hosed BUT, I did the classic "forget to hit record" on my first run. I attempted to do it again, got situated, hit record and shortly after the low battery indicator began chirping. I was in POI mode and couldn't see if record stopped or not but there is no file.

    Is there any hidden thing or way of finding that footage or is it just gone.

    I definitely hit record before starting.

    And a second question, what the heck would cause the phantom to not go lower than about 8 feet. I coming out POI mode and then I brought it down like usual and it would not go any lower. I eventually was able to reach up and grab the leg and successfully turn it off.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    On the SD Card. As far as I am aware, that's the routine. Hit record and it records on the SD card. I think I simply hosed it up. I do see 3 stills before take off.

    Makes me wonder if I even hit record properly.
