@DoomMeister, ask how the files are obtained. I'm almost sure, these files are from the SD card in the ST16, not from the file system.
I don't have an SD card in the controller, can the files be obtained without an SD card? The only SD card I had was in the camera on the drone.

The simplest way is to use an SD card but with some luck, your computer will recognize the controller. Any SD card with the FAT32 filesystem can be used in the controller.

Kind of an "off the wall" thing, but can you mark this image to show the approximate direction the drone travelled after losing control? Can you estimate how high above ground level it was?

I would estimate the elevation was 200-250 feet. I got on the roof to try and get reconnected and to have a better view of drone.

Not good. The direction it traveled suggests it would have travelled a couple of miles before encountering land high enough to stop it. At that distance the chances of it staying on course are not good. Using the estimated height and direction would yield the two areas marked in red as the general search area. Not really much hope in this, but it's all I have at the moment. Maybe better if we can get the flight logs to narrow down the path as far as telemetry held up.

Non of the pictures I see here have a relationship to the flight log I have downloaded. Can someone tell me what logs do you use?

We still don't have the real flightlogs. The pics above are just Google Map marked up using recollections and estimations from what he remembers.

A comment from the peanut gallery to jamesj - Go in to your controller and make sure you have the correct date and time. My Typhoon H controller will frequently default back to some earlier date and time. Files will then be marked with the incorrect date and time.

If you have good GPS data it should change to the correct date and time (standard as GPS does not use daylight savings), but easy enough to check beforehand. I believe it is the GPS on the ST16 that is used, but I could be wrong.

The only time any of my ST16's update the time and date is when I connect them to the wifi router. I don't recall them ever updating on their own in the field.

Try to set the time with a few minutes difference from the real one and after that check what happens with a GPS coverage for ST16. Sometime before I tested this and it works. The problem with the ST16 is a chaotic selection of timezone and daylight savings time. This is a known problem, which reflects the time of the taken pictures too. A year ago I was found a balanced solution, now I'm not flying active, so should reconstruct it to the spring.
