Suddenly, the man, who has not been identified by the authorities, lost contact with the drone, according to the friend. It hovered for a couple of minutes, not taking direction from the controller. And then it shot up, rising hundreds of feet into the night sky before taking off at a high speed, due east." A DJI spokesman suggested the fly-away was due to operator error. Still, it does bring national attention to the fly-away issue.
