Yesterday I was out flying and getting some footage around a local river. I went in to a conservation area because I knew there was a decent sized parking lot and now that summer is pretty much finished it would be quiet. So I launch my P3P and fly around for a while, all things good. Then a passer by walks by and asks me about what I'm doing, so I let her know, taking my eyes off the P3P just for a second. I look back up and it's gone. The sun is too bright to use the display well, but I don't panic because there's a small office only a few feet away and I figure I'll go stand in it's shade and be able to see better and get her on track. I can still hear her humming up over the trees so I know things aren't too bad. I step in under the steel roof of the office for shade and then discover my mistake. Steel Roof. As I look at the screen on my tablet I see the dreaded message "Signal Lost" and a black screen. Quickly I step back out into open space, but still "Signal Lost"! I hit the return to home, "Return to Home Failed." For the next ten minutes I tried everything I could think of, driving to other more open parts of the park hoping to get a clear signal, I even turned the control off and then on again hoping I would get a re-boot type of reconnect. Nothing. Everything I tried failed. Then, all of a sudden, I could hear her getting louder. I looked up and with complete amazement saw her flying in on her own and then gently landed to her home position. I don't know how, but I'm definitely a lucky guy today.
