I have had sixty something flights and mine as never just flown away. I get the compass error a lot but after a few minutes it settles and goes away. This just forces you to go into atti mode which is not much of a fly away situation as much as it is a loss of gps help. Any wind or momentum will send your quad flying but it can always be stopped and brought back. Usually the errors we have seen are more with return to home sending it in a weird direction or low and fast. These are being tested for the next firmware update as we speak.
Thats a pretty standard expert response.
On the day A1-001 ended its life it had 2 of these events the first one it actually responded to control input it flew backward for around 25m. The second time the distance was 64m and it would not respond to any control input.
Now you would think if I could catch and recover in 25m then a 64m distance would be no problem.
So while the experts ponder what us mortals can do remember you were not there.
