I lost my Mavic Pro drone this afternoon. I was flying a double grid mission after updating Pix4DCapture, and changing battery settings in DJI Go4. I turned off Smart RTH set low battery warning at 15%. I had been having problems previously where it would RTH at 20% and land, but I could not resume to finish a mission if it took longer than 1 battery.
Today I learned the hard way. I tried to take control at about 21% and manually fly back, but the screen lag was so bad I couldn’t orient myself. I tried switching to P mode to force it to give me control, which at some point it did, but I was unable to get it to RTH. Tried pressing RTH on the remote controller, tried opening the DJI Go4 app after force quitting Pix4DCapture, but battery was running out, and soon it disconnected. I assume it tried to land, it showed 4% or so when I lost connection. I cannot find the coordinates to search for the drone, there is nothing in DJI Go4. I did find a GPS coordinate in Pix4DCapture on the project screen, but I think that is where the last survey photo was taken, then I tried to take control and lost it. I looked that coordinate up on Google Earth and went to the location, but it was not there. This is a neighborhood area, there are trees and buildings, so no idea where it has gone. I am at a total loss for what to do now. There goes a $1300 investment.
