Went out to fly my Inspire 1 today and came home without it. Flight path from DJI app : (increase res to 1080p and use full screen to see better; sorry about the watermark - evidently frickin Apple makes it almost impossible to record the screen. I should have gotten an android tablet instead of apple) Started flight at 68%... was just going to do a circle to run the battery down and then put a new one in. As I'm flying, at ~1:20, the battery drops immediately down to 5%... I get a landing gear lowering alert and beeping. I start to freak naturally, spin the drone back towards me and make a run for it. Unfortunately I'm at a "low" (160 feet) height, it starts to drop rapidly to about 60 feet and crashed into a tree (you can see it "tumble" on the flight path). It was about 4:30 so it started to get dark by the time I located it from the flight path and it's about 40' up in a tree. So, yes, I should have had a full battery, but my question is what is my recourse? Seriously, batteries should not be failing causing our craft to crash. I can understand pilot error, but it's unreasonable to have to "worry" about a battery failing like this. I don't know how the internal software can have such a false reading like that: fly away your at 60%... whoops... changed my mind... your at 5... think quick! Any suggestions from those that have unfortunately been through similar? I will mention I'm fairly experienced with 26 flights on this for a total of 3+ hours (over the last two months) along with years of RC airplane flying. I've NEVER run into this before. I plan to go out early tomorrow morning to see if it fell from the tree or I can get it down. Pretty annoyed that this is NOT my fault and there is not much I could have done to avoid. I was very close to getting it out from over the trees. You cannot make accurate decisions if the company is not making technology that gives you accurate information. Little frustrated, so thanks for the help. BTW, I have four batteries all with under 10 flights on them, so I have not done a "full discharge" cycle yet. P.S. The camera broke off and I found it on the ground. Looked to be ok minus the broken plate that connects it to the craft. Will have to try when I can, hopefully, retrieve the craft.
