Had a great week of flying, or atleast until Friday evening that is.. I decided to put the latest firmware update on my H pro Tuesday afternoon.. I had kind of a hard time getting it to accept the latest but it finally did, and when went to cut it back on to get ready for another flight the camera goes crazy!! I mean "CRAZY". I immediately cut it off, take the battery out for a few minutes and start it back up.. this time it acts fine, like nothing ever happened before.. the kind of person I am I decided to call Yuneec to tell them what had happened & to see if I maybe did sumthing wrong.. lol of course they had no idea, & they haven't heard of anyone having any problems with the latest firmware.. lol.. so anyway I went on out flying. Perfect flight.. next day Thursday, 3 more 12-15 minute flights with no problems.. Friday evening, I take it out, I lift up a few times to watch it Hoover like I always do, just to try to detect any problems and on the 3rd time I lifted up, it got 2 feet off the ground & took off to the right very fast!!.. wth!! I must have some got a little control of it bc it landed 25ft away into the ground braking the camera completely detached from the gimbal
.. as bad as it is, I can't help but think that it coulda been a lot worse!! Anyway a call in to the home of yuneec. And just a few questions asked & the sent me a label to send her to Raytown, Mo. for repair.... so, not sure I'm lucky or unlucky!!! LoL, I just can't wait to her back flying again..

Do you think you could have not been in angle mode on that last flight?
