Pt 107 Pilot and Private Pilot. Started off with the original Mavic Air which I still carry of trips where a smaller drone is needed. Purchased a P4V2 Phantom which was doing well until Thanksgiving day when I suffered a Fly away and resulting loss at sea on a remote island in the Aleutian Island chain. Picking up a used Inspire 2 on Saturday. The attached photo was taken from 1843 feet up (still within 400 ft of mountain) on the island of Akutan. Looking forward to new images when I go back with inspire next month. More photos on Instagram username is "Tazshot"

Welcome. Did you analyze the flight log for flyaway cause?
The only thing that I can think of as I had clear line of sight from an elevated balcony with no obstructions to the Drone was the fact that I had an Optimera WiFi satellite dish pointed almost exactly where I was operating at. It was behind my location and was aimed low on the horizon. Controller went to grey screen with loss of communication, pressing RTH and finally turning off controller did nothing drone hovered in that area for several minutes then departed to the east.
