    This happened yesterday. Please read the YouTube video description for more details please.


    Anyone have any idea why my Phantom did this? Thanks.

    Did it get whacked by an angry bird?

    That's what I was wondering... But usually if they hit a prop the program stops and the phantom just falls out of the sky...

    Looks like you got hit with a gust of wind or an angry bird!! I am assuming you got controll and continued your flight?

    it simply looks like you switched into manual mode, pressed forward, and did a flip (which is normal).. then had the phantom do what it does in manual mode -- which is terrifying if you are not quick on the sticks.. and then you regained control in GPS mode.. maybe you have a wonky switch?

    I'm in Phantom mode, so I don't have the manual or atti option.

    Funny story is that in in Phantom mode because my s1 switch is faulty

    Yep, I just flicked a bunch of switches and it regained control

    Nope. I had clear LOS. No birds anywhere
