Everyone, PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THIS RECENT iOS RELEASE. Based upon the telemetry and video, I suspect that the flight characteristics of the Inspire 1 have recently changed rather significantly. I can see that I released the sticks in GPS mode 50 feet before impact, then began reverse throttling, and I was even 100% reverse stick with little to no response from the Inspire 1. I no longer suspect that this crash was my fault, and I would be very cautious operating under DJI Pilot App version 1.2.0 (at least for iOS, as I was using).
I will try to capture the screen info and post it along with the video later tonight.
Can't figure out how to get the ShouTV app operational, so I just grabbed a few key frames from the Pilot App.
You can see where I have no input on the right stick just over 50 feet before impact, then 71% reverse thrust 30 feet before impact, then 100% reverse thrust 10 feet before impact.
Known issue: watching the app, it lags
Braking should be set to max 130 for that style of flying.
Loss of stick commands? I cant see it backing out that fast
Left stick straight up or a bank turn wouldve spent that baby around asap.
Atti over gps
Hope everything works out for the best tho
It looks to me like it was responding to the stick commands. The aft stick we generating a decreasing horizontal speed, but the obstetrical closure rate exceeded the deceleration.
I have had a couple of instances where the deceleration seemed oddly unresponsive. but I've never been able to document it, and have always written it off to a misjudgment on my part.
Next time I fly I think I'll try and measure a few high speed to stationary transitions to get a better sense of what it takes. In this case it sure looked like a fast closure rate.
130 it stopsThanks for your response. The added perspective is very helpful to me.
One point that I'm seeking clarification on- if your braking is set to a standard setting and you release the sticks from a forward position in GPS mode, doesn't your Inspire 1 "stop" pretty abruptly?
130 it stops
I was using 100 but i like to fly as you do 130 works better for me .
Direction of wind and your speed as you know play a part with abrupt stops or reversals.
Hopefully dji get you back up and running soon.
My only forced crash i was told it did exactly as advertised. Azz hilesThanks, Slim. I shipped my unit back today, so here's to hoping that the newly expanded service center can get me back in the air soon...
I'm going to have to experiment with that. Sometimes it seems to and sometimes it doesn't. I've never taken the time to quantify it, but I will next time I fly. That won't be for a couple of weeks for me. Maybe someone to experiment with this and post their impressions.doesn't your Inspire 1 "stop" pretty abruptly?

Gps, 45 mph, 130 braking, undocumented crosswind, maybe 3mph. Drifted 10-20 feet with no right stick input.
Ill test pulling back on the right stick to see how far to come to a complete stop tonight.
