    Does anyone know of a way to find a downed Drone. I had been having some problems and thought they had been solved by the dealer's tech but not sure now. I had it in eye sight and was in home mode as I was getting some warnings that I was not familiar with. My drone appeared to just stop, may have made a few odd moves and down she went. I still have the last screen shot on the controller. I can't really recognize where the shot was taken. One of the problems I was having was communication between the camera and control so I am not sure how far if any it traveled after this was sent. I was wondering if there is any way to get the GPS coordinates from just the controller. The tech at the dealer said no. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I found it! I will be getting the SD card in the ST10. Props look like the only damage. I dodged a big bullet on that one.

    Props were the only damage. I put an SD card in my ST10 as was instructed to do on this and the other forum. It is a very easy operation. Try this link to see if it will get you to the video:

    Also if you have to format the SD card this will work:
