Here's my first crash. It wasn't as bad as it seemed. I told the full story at my website: http://www.dronefrontier.com/notams...actually-my-first-crash-was-rather-quiet-lame
Yeah, and I knew better, too. I was just pushing it to much to the limit. That's why I likened it to a new driver.Interesting story. The Inspire 1 doesn't have a rolling home, like the Phantoms recently received (updates every 2 seconds or something like that)? I was surprised by this part of your tale.
No flames, I think the red streak comes from the light on the front of the vehicle. I found the audio files after a search online.So dramatic! Where did the flames come from???
Also, I subscribed to your youtube channel. I've been subscribing to all Inspire 1 pilots' channels.So dramatic! Where did the flames come from???

That's exactly what I expected for it to do: just land. Also, since I had the gear down I figured I could just give it input to land. Neither of those things happened. I've heard if you switch to atti mode that you can regain control in that circumstance. I need to test if that is true.Its a great idea to share mishaps because we all learn from them. So the dynamic home point function is not really dynamic I take it. Also, I think the Inspire does some calculations based on battery left and distance from home before it decides what to do. I would have thought under those circumstances it would have just landed. But then, my inspire is still enroute which is why I am reading everything I can about it before it arrives... And I am waiting for a new A2 GPS pro plus module so my F650 is grounded. Thanks for sharing Jason, sorry about your mishap.
It was flying a straight line to where I last set my RTH to the controller.
