    I am not new to RC's. Not once did I have a fly away with a helicopter, or a plane, in over 20 years. Then again, I wasn't relying on firmware or software.

    The quadcopter is so easy. ..a caveman can do it. But trust me, when your phamtom flys away, and your $1400.00 investment is gone with no support while ur losing money, it really sucks.

    I did all the Pre-flight checks. Everything was as usual! Boom! Gone! And I sure want to know how my flight record disappeared off the Dji Go App. And my flight record is not readable for my last flight only...on any converter site because its in either Japenese or Chineses decoding. Just on my last flight where it took off and crashed. Makes no sense. Protect yourself!

    Well I wasn't really expecting this. But it sure did happen to me. Never again will I rely on a drone company software and be blown off for support.

    I'm sure someone on this forum has ideas on recovering your flight data.

    Marco Polo is the best choice for flying in locations that have no cell service.

    Trackimo is a great tracker, but requires cell service. I use Marco Polo due to no cell service in my flight area. Hope this helps.
