This week was a shock. Halfway through the flight plan of a 3d mission my phantom 3 standard fell like a rock.
Running pix4d the same way i had numerous times on a p3 professional and twice with the same phantom 3 standard that day with centrepoint mode on i had not expected this. The only difference from other missions was not have centre mode on, however i do not see why that would even matter.
The crash occurred suddenly. Right when the long black paths were complete and the drone turned to initiate the crossway pattern “white in app” the drone suddenly rolled sideways and tumble to the ground.
The gimbal arm connecting the camera to the base has been sheared clean off.
The log file is attatched in the drive link.
you can see the crash and complete loss of orientation occurs right when the waypoint changes from 6 to 7, with pitch roll and camera orientation goes haywire.
It was not a significantly windy day with no precipitation and during a sunny midday.
I am very sad :(.
How can I trust this app again? It seems to be the most functional app there is but this crash was so sudden it simply left no seconf to take over manual control as it suddenly flipped the drone…
